Chilebrown at home

Tuesday, August 13, 2013


The UPS man did a drive by steak drop off yesterday. To our pleasant surprise the 'Man in Brown'  left a box of bacon wrapped filet mignon. This was a gift from our very good friend Carol who also happens to live in "The Sunflower State'; Kansas. These were not your everyday, garden variety,  'Wally-World' bargain basement filet of the day. These were from the Kansas City Steak Company.These filets were from the finest Kansas corn-fed beef that had been 'Super Trimmed' and aged for 28 days. If that was not enough they were wrapped in bacon. Oh my gosh!

A quick kiss of fire from very hot mesquite charcoals was all these steaks needed. Tender, Tender with real corn-fed deep beef flavor was the verdict. This is a flavor that we crave. This may come as a shock to some but I believe these steaks really did not need the bacon. They were so tender and full of flavor that bacon was only a bit player in this show.  How wonderful is it to have friends like Carol. Carol, Thank you from the bottom, top, and bacon wrapped sides of our heart.

Those look great. Were they dry aged?

Three Dogs BBQ, The website only says aged up to 28 days. I called the 800 number and they quoted me the same. So your guess is as good as mine. I can say there was a deep beef flavor. Filets usually do not have as much flavor compared to sirloin. This had lots of beef flavor.
