Very nice indeed. The steak is a bit overcooked for me, but overall I would it it :) best use of JW Blue I have seen, much better than having to drink it... :D
I agree. If I was going to be eating it, I would've preferred more on the mid-rare side. But that was for a party at the restaurant. Guest wanted it medium-midwell. Gah.
Last night I decided to make braised beef short ribs, Keller's mashed potatoes with garlic confit and grilled raddicho. Unfortunately the beef short ribs didn't turn out the way I wanted them to so I won't bother posting pictures and this was my first time dealing with raddicho, which was so bitter I threw it out. What did turn out to be an absolutely amazing dish was Thomas Keller's mashed potatoes with garlic confit. I very slowly over low heat cooked the garlic cloves and then using my food mill, mashed the potatoes with butter and garlic confit. I warmed up some heavy cream and slowly incorporated that until I had reached the desired consistency, add salt and pepper and they were the best mashed I had ever had.
I know presentation is not my best but the wifey and I were so hungry we started digging into the taters and then I realized, shoot I need to take a picture!
Chef, that is some amazing work, please keep sharing it with us!
