I just had my first steak in a year or more, and DAMN was it good. Asia is not a good place for red meat lovers, and beef is not a big part of my diet, but I was in a foreign supermarket tonight and couldn't resist.
Sorry to all the vegetarians out there (some of whom are my friends, though a chef friend of mine once asked how I could be friends with vegetarians...), but you just don't know what you're missing out on.
I bought a nice sirloin steak, and, on the advice of the same chef friend, rubbed some (not much) butter into it and let it sit for a while on my counter for a while. Then I just pan-fried it in a bit more butter and olive oil, and put it straight onto the plate, with just a bit of kosher salt sprinkled on top. A bit of couscous and broccoli on the side, and a Black Sheep Ale to drink. Just fantastic.
Steak! So hot right now. Steak!
