RSVP Cook: Beef Plate Ribs & St. Louis'

Recommended Posts

So, what is it about men that makes them reluctant to RSVP? Cooking for my brothers and nephews this Saturday to make up for all the birthdays I missed, so I picked supplies today. 10 pounds of beef plate ribs and 10  pounds of Spares that I am cutting into St. Louis'.

I don't think hardly anyone RSVP's anymore...  which can make planning something challenging.  If that was on the line though - pretty sure I would find the time for a quick call to confirm my attendance. :)

Exactly. Not such a big deal for burgers and hot dogs but for the more expensive and time consuming cuts, an RSVP is essential! 

I am practicing my monologue now:

It was a great honor to cook for all of you. To all of you who RSVP'd, the line starts over here. For everyone else, your meats will be ready in about 7 1/2 hours. 

:-D

I was going to suggest inviting women instead... but I'm loving your monologue so my new suggestion is to go with that and let us know how it plays out. :)

Holy cow those look meaty!  Keep us posted as things progress throughout the day.  No doubt you've had time to polish your monologue. :)

 

 

Thanks! will do :-D

 

Decided to do Texas Spare Ribs instead of St. Louis'. Put 'em on in about 2 hours.

Educate me on "Texas" spare ribs....  I am totally not good at this, but does it have to do with the trim or the seasoning?

Basically a spare rib with breast bone trimmed off. I square it up a little. Simple seasoning: salt, black pepper. I've added paprika. No sauce. I never provide sauce at my cooks. And, always discourage its use. When I invite guests over to eat, I always make sure there is not much more than a leftover Chick-Fil-a bbq sauce container or two around the house. My wife then proceeds to sneak out to the store and magically produces a bottle out of thin air as I am explaining to the guests why the smoke, seasonings and quality of the meats and Central Texas BBQ experience warrant no sauce. :-D

I totally geeked out on your meat porn...

 

also, Im from Texas and, sometimes, I do BBQ sauce. Homemade of course. However, I've lived all over the country, and sometimes a little sauce adds to the flavor and theres different types of sauce, they're not all sweet ketchup based ones. to each his own, but putting sauce on bbq isn't quite the same as putting putting A-1 on a med-rare steak ... IHMO

      This is one of my favourite salads that really delivers far more voomph than the list of ingredients would suggest.
       
      I bought a sous vide machine about a year ago and have only used it twice, always thinking that I would love to do some eye fillets (inspired by @AntinOz, and figured that this was as good a time as any to pull the box out from the bottom of the cupboard.  After biting into that beef which was as soft as butter, the Anova is going to be stored in a more accessible spot going forward.
       
      Easy Thai Beef Salad Ingredients
      2 x 250g eye fillet steaks or similar
      Oil for cooking steak
      150g of mixed lettuce leaves
      1 telegraph cucumber
      1 carrot sliced into thin strips
      ½ to 1 red capsicum sliced into thin strips
      1 red onion sliced thinly (I omitted due to raw onion allergy)
      Salt and pepper
      1 bunch coriander leaves, picked
      1 bunch mint leaves, torn if large
      Toasted sesame seeds
       
      Salad Dressing Ingredients
      1 teaspoon peanut oil (I subbed with grapeseed oil because it’s a no flavour oil that I had in the cupboard)
      1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
      2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
      2 teaspoons fish sauce
       
      Method
      I started off with seasoning my beautiful steaks with salt and pepper and then vacuum sealing them.  I left them on the counter to come to room temp whilst I got the water up to 54 degrees C / 130 F.

       
      They were in the water bath for two hours and when I removed them, I patted them dry using paper towels, which ensures a crust can form.
       
      I heated up the Kamado to 220 degrees C / 430F with the coals banked to the left and the grate in the lower position.  I then put a cast iron fry pan on there to heat up with the lid down.

       
      Whilst I was doing all this, I prepared my veggies and dressing.
       
      Once the pan was hot, I put in a tablespoon or so of oil, swirled it around and cooked the steaks, about 30 seconds on each side.
       

       

       
      The steaks then camped out in a foil tent for about 10 mins.
       
      Holy moly! Slicing through those buttery steaks was a revelation!!

       
      So juicy ... and all evenly dispersed within the meat!!
       

       
      To assemble the salad, I just layered the lettuce, herbs, topped with the veggies, placed the slices of steak on top, drizzled on the dressing and sprinkled with the sesame seeds.
       
      I made extra salad and doubled the dressing, which hubby and I took to work for lunch today causing lunchbox envy in the workplace. LOL. 
       

       
      Not sure if the entry counts given the steaks were only finished on the Kamado but I’m cool with it either way because it’s an easy and tasty recipe that I hope you try.

      Hi everybody,
      I am a kamado quasi-neophyte (I've got a Monolith junior since last August), and after some experience with shorter cooks (chicken; ribs) I wanted to enroll into Brisket Academy. Unfortunately, it seems that I have failed the entry exam, as I couldn't explain to my butcher what I needed.
      In the end, I was talked into buying something that definitvely does not look like brisket to me, and I don't know how to cook. It seems something I would braise or boil, but according to the butcher I can cut it into strips and make 'asado'. It is boneless (but has some hard cartilage).
       
      Apart for the idea of slicing strips and grilling them (that's not what I wanted), what could I do with this chunk of meat? How would you call it in English?
       
      Thank you a lot!

      A little behind the scenes to my Instagram post. Sunday I smoked two small chuck roasts for about 4 hours at 250 
       
      Then I put them in foil in beef broth and aromatics and let them braise for another four hours. 
       
      After two hours FTC these were ready to serve. I fried up the onions and served on fresh buns with American cheddar, horseradish mayo and Au jus 
       
      will deffinetly be doing this again
