My butcher doesn't even offer "select".

I like what I buy, now.

My reverse seared top sirlon turned out great, but I forgot to cook the Vidalia onion and green peppers that I intended to eat with it .

I did however remember to cook the baked tater .

My top sirlon was cut off a 9.5 pound hunk of meat that I got from Costco for about $45.00 .

That's about 5 bucks a pound which I found very cheap because hamburger meat cost about that much now a days doesn't it ?

I have to check out the meat market. They had
$2.79 lb. baby back ribs.

This is a perfect example of why you should never put cast iron in the dishwasher. They shrink! Thankfully I was able to save this #10 skillet before it completely disappeared.

I still use my teflon pans once in a while.
I have my 8" omellette pan, just for that.
I also have a 12" teflon pan, although I find
myself using my stainless sauciers more often
than not.

Sometimes you can stretch them back out, it's a pain though.

Probably belongs in the Alton Brown thread,
but it will fit right in here..

Bust out the cast iron on Thanksgiving, and
make green bean casserole! Made it last year,
and now I'm not allowed to make the stuff from
the can ever again...


Ingredients:

For the topping:
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Nonstick cooking spray

For beans and sauce:
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 pound fresh green beans, rinsed, trimmed and halved
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
12 ounces mushrooms, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup half-and-half

Directions:


Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.

Combine the onions, flour, panko and salt in a large mixing bowl and toss to combine. Coat a sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray and evenly spread the onions on the pan. Place the pan on the middle rack of the oven and bake until golden brown, approximately 30 minutes. Toss the onions 2 to 3 times during cooking. Once done, remove from the oven and set aside until ready to use. Turn the oven down to 400 degrees F.

While the onions are cooking, prepare the beans. Bring a gallon of water and 2 tablespoons of salt to a boil in an 8-quart saucepan. Add the beans and blanch for 5 minutes. Drain in a colander and immediately plunge the beans into a large bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Drain and set aside.

Melt the butter in a 12-inch cast iron skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms begin to give up some of their liquid, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and nutmeg and continue to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir to combine. Cook for 1 minute. Add the broth and simmer for 1 minute. Decrease the heat to medium-low and add the half-and-half. Cook until the mixture thickens, stirring occasionally, approximately 6 to 8 minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in 1/4 of the onions and all of the green beans. Top with the remaining onions. Place into the oven and bake until bubbly, approximately 15 minutes. Remove and serve immediately.

So I knew somewhere I had another few cast iron pans/skillets around but I haven't seen them in years. Since my favorite skillet disappeared recently I fugured I better do some searching for the old stuff. Finally after looking everywhere, I went out to an old oven I had replaced years ago and checked in there just for grins. Sure enough......there they were in the bottom.
That collection consist of a small one like Hash posted. It's a no brand name #3. About 5" on the bottom. I believe this is actually a Lodge though from some of the markings. Also there was a Lodge 8" skillet that is barely used. The beauty of the bunch is a Griswold #6 in great condition. I cleaned all of them up and seasoned them yesterday. This morning I used the small one to fry my eggs up! Never even thought about sticking.

I remember having these things years ago but I don't recall where the wife and I got them. I'm thinking her grandmother gave them to us but back then we really didn't know much about cast iron and we never used them. I'm glad to have found these. The wife still uses her teflon stuff usually but I rarely do. Cast Iron is my go to!
