Every now and then I screw up just a little bit, but that often turns around to be actually rather damn good!
In this case, I took a section of last fall's Blacktail Backstrap out of the freezer, prepped a great marinade, and settled the meat into it.
Went to put it in the fridge, and realized I already had steaks ready to go for that eve.
And of course the next night was my birthday session of the Port Alberni Diner's Club,.
So, the backstrap sat in the marinade for two full days, stirring to ensure full coverage from time to time.

Last night it was up. Looked great right from the start:



A quick sear then a low & slow cook on the BarBee:



Perfection:



And Presentation:



Served with corn on the cob, an excellent Asiago & fresh Cracked Pepper rice.
Tenderest Blacktail we have had all year, you could literally cut it with your fork!
The wine was a very good Malbec from Argentina that more resembled a Shiraz to me, but was an excellent compliment to the meal overall.

Sometimes folks ask me why I hunt.
This is but one of my answers...

Cheers,
Nog

Did my world famous beef short ribs last night. Works just as well with pretty much any tough meat. If any of you guys open a restaurant and get rich with this recipe, drop my name once in a while.

4 to 6 large short ribs
2 carrots chopped
4 celery stalks chopped
1 onion chopped
1 red beet sliced
handful of rosemary sprigs
handful of thyme sprigs
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 bottle of red wine
1 liter of beef broth
1/4 cup diced butter
Cambozola cheese

Salt and pepper the ribs and brown all sides in a roasting pan or Dutch oven. Remove the ribs and add the vegetables and cook for a few minutes to carmelize.

Add the brown sugar, red wine, beef broth and rosemary/thyme sprigs.

Cover and transfer to a 350 oven for 4 hours.

Set the meat aside and keep warm.

Press the vegetables through a sieve to get all the juices and flavours out. Toss the solids.

Skim the fat from the surface with a big spoon. Bring the liquid to a boil and reduce by about half. Whisk in the butter a few chunks at a time. Add the meat back to the gravy and throw it on the table.

Serve on mashed potatoes with a big chunk of Cambozola cheese on the side to eat a bit at a time with every bite.

I get to look forward to leftovers tonight and typing this out has made me hungry again!

Prime rib, been in the Bradley smoker using alder for 8.5 hours, wrapped in tinfoil for the last 3 with a very nice crisp, after marinating 24 hours in the fridge; simple mustard and spog, forgot cayanne damn. I'm gonna give it another hour or so, then let it rest half an hour and open a bottle of Apothic Dark to go with mashed spuds and corn.
