We finally, finally, finally, kicked off grilling season last weekend. It was epic and so satisfying. Lobsters and shit, but the star was the most amazing t-bone steak I picked up from Pusateri's. They dry age their beef, and really, they're no more expensive by the pound than Costco. And a million fucking times better. I don't normally care for these how-to articles, but Serious Eats posted an absolutely fantastic piece on how to grill steaks. You season a few hours beforehand - that's the key. Just sea salt, no pepper, and I marinated with this amazing single varietal olive oil and fresh thyme. Then when you grill, you place it off the heat first, to brown all the sides. You finish it off by searing directly on the charcoal, giving it the most stunning crust. Baste with butter, rest, and slice - I was in fucking beef paradise. Perfectly medium rare, tender, with all the flavour and texture.

Righteous.
