The Racing Honda has put down a lot of rubber on the asphalt these last several weeks. We traveled to Lake Havasu for a bbq competition and last weekend a conference in San Diego to rack up the miles. You may ask, how do you keep your strength for these journeys? My answer is protein. A nice medium rare, corn-fed, aged is nice, USDA (choice or prime), and tender grilled hunk of beef is all I need. We would like to share a couple images with you. Grab your steak knife because here we go.
The first image above is a 32 ounce Porterhouse from The Golden Horeshoe in Lake Havasu Arizona. What a fun steak house this was. A western themed down-home steak palace. A deluxe salad bar added to this monster of beef. When I was done there was a mechanical bull in the bar to work off some of this protein. No pretension served here at this meat and potato emporium. The locals have a gem here.
Our next stop was the Krystals Steakhouse. This was an un-memorable stop for a 14 ounce New York strip. It did prepare me for the bbq judging duties the next morning. I may still have been a little full from the Golden Horshoe. Let's fast forward or rewind to last weekend to bring us to San Diego.
We are a stone throw away from San Diego in Escondido. To be precise we are a Stones Brewery away from San Diego.This is a Wagyu sirloin steak. All I can say is WOW. This was a tender flavor bomb that must be put on your bucket lists of steaks to experience. It was a pleasure to the eyes and the palette. Deep rich beef flavor that was accompanied by a festival of vegetables and perfectly roasted potatoes. It was washed down with some Arrogant Bastard ale. It does not get any better than this.
I love the expression "festival of vegetables." Good word choice!
Zoomie, There were fresh favas, one of my favorite spring vegetables in this mix. I was impressed.
This post gives new meaning to "where's the beef!" Watch out for those cows in the Chick fil a commercial! ;)
Greg, We have a Harris Ranch Cowboy on the grill tonight. The beef is at our house.
