Back in the day, I made some amazing steaks following this Alton Brown recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/pan-seared-rib-eye-recipe/index.html I refuse to use canola oil, so I'm wondering what to use in its place. The... (more)
My favorite method for cooking steak and burgers is to sear both sides in a cast iron skillet then put the whole thing in a 450 oven for a few minutes. However, despite looking at dozens of recipes, I've never seen a recommendation for how hot... (more)
I've been preparing my steaks without any brining, marinade, rubs or seasoning. I thought I'd try something new with brining, but after two tries haven't been successful: my brined steaks end up salty. Perhaps not surprising, but is this as... (more)
Hi! I left a gorgeous New York bone-in Steak out overnight. Meant to cook it, went to dinner, fell asleep and woke up with it still on the counter for 13 hours. I put it back in the refrgerator and am planning on cooking it tonight. Will do the... (more)
Did anyone see the recent Mercola post about the meta-analysis done by Stanford claiming that Organic food has no benefits? It raised an interesting point I hadn't heard before: The Department of Homeland Security are increasingly looking into... (more)
I know there have been previous discussions on the nutrient factors of raw versus cooked meat, i.e. "which is more nutritious?" or "which will make my teeth healthier?" However, I have yet to see a definitive answer on which is easier to digest,... (more)
has anyone done this with good results? i need a compact appliance for grilling steaks easily in my apartment, or, should i buy a portable electric burner and cook them in a cast-iron/enameled pan? i'm concerned that the foreman grill is designed... (more)
I've noticed that the vacuum packed "butcher block" rib eye steaks have 1 gram of trans fat. Why is that? Do all steaks have trans fat? I was really disturbed by seeing that. I'd like to eat this type of steak on a daily basis. Since this steak... (more)
CLA (edited: conjugated linoleic acid) is a trans fat that is found in grass-fed meat and butter. It is a good trans fat. Nothing to be worried about.
I'm sure others have noticed this, but I don't see anywhere near as much weight loss when eating chicken, seafood or other meat compared to steak. Even with ground beef compared to ground turkey, I notice a difference. So, back to beef (steak at... (more)
This might seem like a silly question but I was a vegetarian for 18 years and have only recently started paleo. Today I have made steak for the first time in my life and I am wondering if I should keep the steak for breakfast or lunch as I may... (more)
In my experience (not a former vegetarian, though), no. Steak tends to satiate without giving you that "OMG I ate too much" vibe. Disclaimer: I am in a meat CSA and eat steak frequently.
Lately I've been really into beef burgers (sans bun). It's also a lot cheaper than steak every night. Assuming they came from the same happily grassfed animal, how do they stack up against each other?
I am starting to get the hang of this lifestyle I think. I find I am eating two large meals (one morning one evening) and one snack in the afternoon. I love that I am not "STARVING" all the time anymore, and I'm eating to nourish my body. This... (more)
today i was at the local popular big box store and bought a thick cut rib eye steak. Not wanting to eat a two pounder i cut in in half, thats when i noticed somthing very peculiar, the meat seemed to have been glued up to form the steak i simply... (more)
I really like these restaurants. Sure, you have to skip the free peanuts and bread and are limited to a few choices for side dishes if you want to stay paleo, but they KNOW how to cook a steak. If they had grass fed as an option, I'd go twice as... (more)
I have for some time now been plagued with intermittent bouts of premature ventricular contractions (PVCs). For the uninitiated, it's a pronounced feeling of a "skipped" beat that is really difficult to ignore when the frequency is high and the... (more)
Here's my issue- whenever I eat a huge, delicious steak, an hour later, I have hunger pangs. Every time. It doesn't matter if its just the steak, or if its steak with veggies. And its when I eat big steaks-14-18 ounces, or bigger. I don't go... (more)
What kind of steak are you eating? If it is an overly lean cut (such as a filet or lean sirloin) you could be putting down a lot of protein and not a whole lot of fat. Protein, especially in excess (14-18oz would qualify) can stimulate insulin... (more)
So I've been eating steak pretty regularly. I think I could live off steak, butter and dark chocolate, but that's a whole different rant. Anyway. I cooked my steak in Kerrygold and it had this odd oil-slick-like green tinge on certain areas. I'm... (more)
Tonight, I had the most amazing steak ever. Thick, New York strip, medium-rare, local grass-finished and it was absolutely the most tender, butteriest steak I have ever had in my entire life. I cannot say enough about this steak; it was... (more)
So, I was a vegetarian for the entirety of my adult life until recently. I know close to nothing about cooking meat. I have joined a monthly meat buying-club in my area, and I'm now faced with the perplexing task of ordering. I'm lost! The... (more)
Anybody have any tips on cooking a good steak? I think I cook a mighty fine steak, I love rib eye medium rare, but was wondering if anyone has some tips, tricks, or special methods especially for tough cuts.
I am new to Paleo and I really love it so far, but I see everywhere people just practically writhing in gastronomic pleasure due to how much steak they get to eat. I hate steak. The taste, the mouth feel, the smell, the gushing juices... I am all... (more)
You are not doomed. Eat your grass-fed ground beef and fish as your main protein sources, supplement with bacon and occasional chicken. You'll be fine.
Considering all the comments I get on my answers and blogs when discussing this, I think it deserves its own question. I know several people online and offline who follow this diet. It involves eating mostly grassfed steak cooked in... (more)
