So two weeks back….God, has it been that long already?…. I lost my cousin in a sky diving accident. He was ex Army Ranger, a sky dive instructor and part of a sky dive team. They had done a formation and coming into the landing, somebody was out of place. My cousin had the last minute choice to hit that guy and they possibly both died or to make a last minute turn. He turned, but didn’t make it.
Since that happened, I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching. One of the things I decided was that I want to be closer to my brother. He lives just 25 minutes away, but we never see each other. Life is just to “busy”. I decided that needed to change, so I invited him over for dinner Saturday night so we could hang out.
Went and picked up 2 1 3/4″ ribeyes from Hirsch’s Meat Market in Plano since this was a special occasion. Didn’t know it was going to cost that much, but it came out to $75!! Much nicer steaks than I get at my local grocery store and it was a special occasion.
Decided these needed to be done right, so I broke out the Sous Vide and these guys got a 2 hour bath at 134.
Wasn’t sure if I was going to use the Egg of the Weber for the cook, but after going through my inventory I discovered I had way more Kingsford charcoal than lump. Need to get rid of it just for storage space so the kettle got the nod.
Couple minutes per side and then a 10 minute rest of so while we waited for Mrs. G to finish up the sides
Sides were garlic mashed cauli and some green beans.
The steaks did not suck. I think I did them justice and it was good getting to hang out with my brother. We’re going to try and make it at least a monthly thing and do a better job staying in touch. Thanks for listening to me ramble and get that off my chest.
