    Expensive meat ideas!

    Shop Now
    I have a large $20 dinner budget every day. Instead of haplessly spending it on a bunch of expensive Primal junk food, or even a huge corn-fed steak dinner, I was thinking it might be better to just buy a pound (or less) of really yummy cut of some kind of expensive meat and cook that, while IFing for the rest of the day. Any ideas?

    Oh yeah, and I'm in Michigan and my Hawaii ass doesn't want to buy any raw fish here =x

    Also, is there a good stove-top way of preparing beef?

    If I had only one meal, and $20 to spend on it I'd get some hangar or chuck, a bottle of red wine, as many onions as you're willing to chop (up to a couple of five-pound bags), one-and-a-half pounds of your root of choice, and a stick of butter.

    Sear the hangar or chuck in a pot, throw in the onions and half the wine and let that simmer on low for at least 4 hours; when it's done you'll be able to shred it with a fork. While that's going on, prepare your starch. I like buttery mashed potatoes, skillet potatoes, roasted sweet potatoes, or some white rice (half-cup when raw). If you're feeling especially fancy get some jicama or celery and have a bite of that every few bites to cleanse the palate, the better to taste the meal. Enjoy with a glass or two of the wine.

    Steak au poivre in a cast iron skillet :Steak au Poivre Recipe : Alton Brown : Food Network
    Or burgers in a cast iron skillet.
    Basically, a cast iron skillet is the way to go for searing.

    Almost. If you had the disposable cash for a copper pan that would be tops for searing, but cast iron is still a very good choice, and stupid cheap too.
