Fresh home grown Butter Beans with fresh home grown Okra and NO heavy breading and fresh home grown sliced tomatoes. And a glass of sweet iced tea. A complete meal.

Thatís a hard one. I am a pizza and pasta lover and Iíve had some good ones in my travels, but for the BEST Iíd have to go with a steak. I was Tel Aviv Israel on Election Day last year with two coworkers and I always find the places to eat. So I went to the google machine and found a place called Dakotas steak house that was labeled as the best in Israel. All of the reviews said expensive but worth it. So off we went!

The meal started off with Carpaccio, fresh bread, and a nice simple salad. It was delicious. We ordered our steaks by size (they were sold by grams) and of course I ordered the biggest ribeye I could get. When it showed up I was disappointed because it was served with frozen fries

It was served a perfect medium rare/medium with only salt and pepper and cut into strips. Let me tell you I forgot all about those frozen fries after the first bite. It was absolutely melt in your mouth amazing. My family raises high quality cattle and I get mine dry aged and Iím no slouch on the grill, but this was just on another level and will the the measuring stick for every other steak in my life.

My boss kindly offered to pay for the meal. Everyone got the salad, steak, and a cold beer. For three people....$675.

It was worth every penny I didnít spend

I'm a little surprised at how few desserts are mentioned. If I live to be 100 and were to dine on gourmet food every day, there would still be no question that the finest thing I ever ate was Bananas Foster at a French Quarter restaurant. They brought the ingredients to my table and made it tableside. Bananas and vanilla ice cream, covered with a sauce made from about a pound of butter and a bucket of brown sugar. The butter and brown sugar was heaped over the bananas and ice cream, then generously doused in dark rum and banana liqueur and set afire until the butter and brown sugar melted into a true nectar of the gods bathing the bananas and ice cream.

I am a happily 39-years married caucasian heterosexual, but I almost left my wife for the large black man who made the flambe dessert of my dreams; it was that good. He accepted my thanks and praise, but jilted me and moved on to the next table . . .

Investigate cooking sous vide. Every steak you cook going forward will be that good.

It's not Bananas' Foster, but it'll have to do on a cold, rainy morning.

Interesting. Just googled it; never heard of that before. I think I'd like to try.

I'm wondering how well it works on large pieces of meat? I often cook a tri tip roast, but it would be really nice to have it come out medium rare all the way through.

Works great - and doesn't need to be just big chunks. Many meats benefit from long cooks. Lamb shank I had last night was 24hrs, short ribs I had last week were 48hrs. I do pork butt every now and then.

That's how I prepped the ~10lb (?) prime rib for our christmas last year. Cooked it here for 24hrs or so, then threw it in a 500ļ oven to finish over at her place right before dinner.

Thanks much.

Could be.

How come the crabs are not half shabby here then?

You figure if you know how to cook a crab halfway decent?
