@MMarciano,
I have never pan fried a steak, I've either grilled outside or broiled in the oven. I hate to admit I'm not sure how to even pan fry any type of meat (well, other than bacon) and I'm feeling a tad inept. I do know I'm thrilled we are no longer talking about (urp) eel.

I got the idea to pan fry steaks from Gordon Ramsay Smile

@jcboy,
If I pan fry a steak, I do it in a cast iron skillet, with no oil.

glitterbag, if you use a cast iron skillet, the trick is to let it heat up at the highest your stove will go for about 15 minutes.

Also, don't mess around with the meat after you put it in the pain, expect to turn it once.

I do like the idea of the butter Ramsey used though. It looks from the wrapper like it's Kelsey Gold.

Next time I make steak, I will put some in the pan in the last few seconds and move the steak into the butter, then flip.

Man, a good steak sounds really good right now.

That is what I use, a cast iron skillet. Sometimes I will take a sprig of thyme and dip it in the butter then rub it all over the steak, it makes a nice flavor Smile

Bacon, thick cut (maple cured or hickory), lay on prchment on a cooking pn nd put in the oven. It taks about 20 min t 400 F . Its crisp, not all twisted and excellent flavor.

@farmerman,
Mrs F is woerking in the barn with over 400 new lambs (Marking skin ,snipping tails for lamb tail soup). SO, decent cook that I am, I made one of those "Fresh Purdue baking chickens in a baking bag".
DONT EVER MAKE ONE OF THESE. They have so much goddam Na metaphosphate (to retain moisture) that it imparts a bitter soapy flavor unto the chicken . Im gonna write to that company. I do it to our PA DEPT Ag about scallops supposedly sold as "dry pack" which are also loaded with a "moisture retaining" chemical

BASTARDS.

At least the veggies were ok

Dmn chicken Leaves a bitter medicinal taste in your mouth.

@farmerman,
I had a bowl of Leftovers soup, quite wonderful. I tend to heat whatever is left that I didn't eat, add water, and more ingredients from the fridge or freezer, taste, and add some verve via spices if it needs it. I keep it in my dear and now old Le Cruset pot. Today's soup was quite a mix: caramelized onions, a mix of kale and chard, prev sauteed mushrooms, sausage bits from last soup, already cooked potato, and leftover Kung Pow Chicken (w/lots of vegies) from our newly visited local chinese restaurant. That worked well, believe it or not.

I have a roast in the oven, with carrots and potatoes.

Girl Scout cookies for dessert. I'll be glad to get rid of those girl scout cookies, if they sold them all year round I'd be wall to wall as in no time Razz

@jcboy,
Tacos sounds good! I think we're going Japanese (Tanaka of Tokyo) or Italian (Macaroni Grill) with friends my sister introduced us to on this trip to Hawaii.
I'm ready for either one.

@tsarstepan,
Ill be eating at do derop Inns and diners for the nexx day or so. I had a lunch supper (Lupper) at the Tunkhannock Diner and had salisbuy steak with caramalized onions and Kennet square mushrooms in a brown sauce. Vry hometown, mom cooking. Talked with some truckers for the gas companies and we all had the salisbury steak.

All agree it was tasty , inexpensive, and served by a matronly zaftig lady who is one of the owners. She got a nice tip from all of us.

LEMON MERINGOO pie for dessert, what could possibly go wrong.

Not something you'll ever find in Salisbury. I think it's just an American thing. Maybe it was named after someone.

Salisbury Cathedral,
