Sweep - what's with the Red Cape Ale in your profile? is that your favourite? pretty old-school considering it still comes in stubbies...

i'm pretty sure i read about zanty having at least a mild case of schizophrenia (sp?), i kind of feel bad for him but he's one of those quirks that makes living in the city worthwhile.

i can't ride after work; i'm going home for meat grillin' and beer drinkin'. got some fat t-bones with my name on it.

For economic purposes you can't beat skirt steak. Its similiar to the flank steak in that it needs a good marinating and to be cooked and cut correctly but the flavour is superb. As for the standard high end steaks I like a good new york strip personally but only if I can cook it I find 90% of the restaurants, (except the stupidly expensive high end places) don't understand how to cook a steak properly.

I cook skirt steak all the time using this Alton Brown method and it works incredibly well. Plus you get to cook on pure charcoal.

Just make sure you cook it from room temperature, use a little bit of good high temperature oil to help conduct heat and have a heat source that is blazing hot.

Oh and make sure the meat rests before you eat it.

PS: I've been street luging hills in and around Toronto recently, for anyone who loves to go fast you don't get to have much more fun.

oh Alton Brown.. he's so dreamy. Although I think I've got a bigger man-crush on the guys from Food Jammers lately.

ps. street luging? are you serious?

that depends. are we talking standard meat? or special occasion meat?

I think the best steaks I've ever had have tended to be tenderloin --- at least on the tenderness scale of things. But I think the cut has less to do with things than the other variables like meat quality, and preparation technique.

eg. it's really easy to make an exceptionally nasty flank steak.

Any tips? The skirt steak recipe looks interesting too. I'll have to remember to try that sometime.
