I can follow a recipe, but if I don't understand the reasons behind all the details, I am likely to "cut corners" when I wing it without following a written recipe. If I understand the reason for following all the finicky details that some recipes have, I am more likely to employ those techniques.
    Yeah, me, too. If I understand the why I will do it. Most recipes are way too fussy and have too many steps, but if they would explain the chemistry and physics behind the steps, I will make the effort.

    By the way, some of these techniques also work on lamb. I "accidentally" bought some lamb loin chops recently because they were on sale. I didn't really know the difference between all the chops and so didn't realize that lamb loin chops are the primo version. I cooked them just like I cook steak, low in the oven with the probe, attempting for a nice rare middle. They came out fabulous and I swear lamb loin chops are what they serve in heaven because it was the tenderest meat and so tasty, like butter. Served it with some spearmint/basil pesto on top.

    I like ribeye, but it feels like too much work to get the meat away from the fat.

    YES. That is where the flavor is. I do prefer my ribeyes cooked at least medium-rare so that the fat has begun to render at least. I like the leaner steaks (strip, filet mignon) pretty much rare as I don't think they benefit at much from the extra cooking.

    2tall, if you are going to learn anything from this forum, it should be this:

    Eat the fat.

    I believe I've discovered a full-proof way to cook delicious steaks on the gas BBQ. I tenderize them and marinate them before putting on the grill.

    I buy steaks from the grocery store, generally New York Strip. I tenderize them with a meat tenderizer/hammer (beat each steak on both sides, puncturing the meat). Then squeeze fresh lemon juice on the just pounded-meat. Then put the steaks in a ziplock bag and pour Italian dressing over the steaks. I keep them in the ziplock for at least 3 hours, turning them and "mushing" the marinade about every 20 minutes.

    Remove steaks from the fridge about 30 minutes before putting them on the grill.

    Pre-heat the BBQ. Then turn off the central burner (on a 3-burner grill) so that the steaks are cooked over indirect heat. Temp is about 550.

    Remove steaks from the marinade and cook 1st side for 6 minutes. Turn the steaks (with tongs, so that you don't puncture the meat), and liberally sprinkle on some Grill Mates Montreal Steak seasoning. Cook for 7 - 8 minutes and ENJOY!

    While the steaks are cooking, I generally prepare a batch of sauteed onions and mushrooms for a topping.

    Yummy! This is what we're having tonight for dinner! I like to cook an extra steak and keep it in the fridge for a couple of days, great to snack on.

    Oh my god that is a HUGE waste of a good ribeye. You are henceforth FORBIDDEN to ever eat a ribeye, you Phillistine.
