Best non steak house steaks.
- MFoxM Aug 18, 2012 10:15 AM
My friend and I were having a discussion about how we want a good steak but was tired of "steak house" steaks and sides. Anyone got any recommendations on good restos that serve more creative steak dishes?
Victor's in Falls Church. It seems as though the stand alone may no longer be open though? Only Victor's II comes up in search results. I haven't been to II, ever, and it's now been awhile since I've been to the other one. However, they used to some good steaks, and Tyler Cowen agrees.
I'd suggest a good Japanese steakhouse, but I can't for the life of me think of one in the area worth recommending. Hana Tokyo off Duke Street maybe?
Meat provided by Boarmans Market on 108 in Highland, MD.
Main coarse: "Cowboy" steak. Perfectly trimmed 2 1/2" thick slab of prime rib / rib eye with a single bone attached for easy handling.
Cooked on a very basic Weber gas grille after marinating with a little Worcester & Monterey Steak seasoning while reaching room temperature.
Four minutes per side to sear. Another 10 minutes on low indirect to bring to medium/rare.
Hands down one of the most delicious steaks I've consumed ever, anywhere.
Second for Boarman's quality. I got ribeyes there, cut well, great quality beef. I also got their hot italian sausage, managed to drop one of them on the ground outside as I was grilling and now my Niece and her husband are always asking me to bring more of the 'dropped sausage' and ribeyes to their next barbecue dinner. Since they supply excellent home brews, it is the least I can do!
My Butcher and more: Annapolis Maryland.
The best USDA prime beef.
He can, and usually does greet and chat with all customers.
Grilling, smoking, cooking in general, this is the guy, and the Butcher.
I live in DC and make that run when I want the best.
