A business associate came to town from far away last week. He wanted local non-chain food for dinner. And steak, he wanted steak. We took him to Churrasco’s on Shepherd/Westheimer and he ordered their signature churrasco steak - WELL DONE!
I’m mainly super polite, so I didn’t comment of course. But at the end of the meal, I asked him how his steak was and he said it was excellent. Before I could stop myself, the words “even well done?” popped out. He had the good grace to look a little sheepish, but then explained that years ago, he got food poisoning and now he makes sure all his food is fully cooked. Sigh.
So anyways, this thread is really just to get that off my chest. But since we’re on it, the filet topped with truffle butter at Brenner’s on the Katy Freeway is my favorite. The butter is nearly as big as the steak. This is from some celebratory dinner a few years ago.
Last June on my birthday, I had the 44 Farms 20 ounce ribeye, medium rare, and added foie gras butter and black truffles from New Zealand.
And once I had this bitty filet with marrow bone. They have this at Pappas Steakhouse also.
And looky there! It’s almost June again.
I also love Churrasco’s, where I order the Puntas with Jalapena sauce (beef tips with a mild white cream sauce and the occasional mild jalapeno slice). Same at Amazon Grill on Kirby.
Where do you steak? I sorta miss the old Hofbrau Steakhouse where you could get steak and salad for a reasonable price. I think that’s about all they had.
I love the Relais de l’Entrecôte concept, there is one in NYC. Steak, frites and salad is all they serve, and the mustardy sauce is a mystery they are not sharing. We need one of those here.
