Okay, maybe NEVER but you don’t really like to order it because you know there is a high likelihood you will be disappointed. Please share recipes when you can!
One of mine is steak. I am by no means even close to an expert so I’m always surprised when I had wished I’d just made one at home. Haven’t ordered a steak in a restaurant in a very long time.
I live in a city apartment with no outdoor area to grill so I sear mine in a wicked hot cast iron pan. Not at all a fan of the smoke detector going off but hey, you do what you have to for a good steak. I usually rub it with olive oil and then generously salt and pepper it, let it sit for about half an hour to come to room temp and then slap it in the smoking pan for about 3 minutes a side if it’s about 1" thick. Let it rest for about 15 min. Nothing fancy so why do I always like mine better?
Another that I will grudgingly try at a restaurant is a hamburger. I like my homemade buns better. I like that mine comes out barely medium rare rather than the medium I always end up getting at the restaurant. And I like that I can make it a size that I will actually be able to take a bite out of. So tired of skyscraper burgers!
What about you?
