I thought it might be fun if everybody post a picture of (or wrote about) the best thing they cooked in 2013?

My favorite thing this year was steak, last year I was on a bacon kick, but this year it was steak!

And my favorite steak was my Coffee Crusted Cowboy Steak. Here is a couple of pics:

OK, whose next?

What brought this on is I just finished a year in review story for the paper on my foodie adventures this year. You can check it out here (http://www.dfw.com/2013/12/30/855875/weekend-chef-my-foodie-year-in.html) if your interested.

You should probably include the knifes that were used to prepare it as well! I see yours hiding in the corner!

At first glance, I thought it had chicken pox.

Can't remember most of it, but I did make a rather tasty porchetta with Okinawa pig...gorgonzola & roasted garlic soft polenta, and a mess of local greens braised with oil cured olives and figs.

Do you have a recipe you follow for that chicken 65? Looks awesome. Never heard of it before but been googling and it sounds great.

Fresh pan seared striped bass, fresh from Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia.... Served over any starch with a pan sauce with white wine, shallots, green onions and lemon zest. Amazing!
