    I just so happened to be looking at my last post of prime NY strips and my wife walked by, stopped, said "wow that looks great, our anniversary is tomorrow (5 years on 11/20), I want that for dinner tonight". I said OK, I'll walk next door. Got to the store with thought of prime steaks again making me drool, went to the meat section, no prime, crap, go ask the butcher, out he comes with a hunk of meat and says give me a couple of minutes and I'll cut you some strips, hell yeah, I'll wait. Grabbed some other stuff I needed for the dinner and off to the house to celebrate (I guess [​IMG]) our 5 years of marriage a day in advance. A bunch of beers and watching college football all day(she likes it ever since I taught her how to gamble, before only pro football) and it's time for dinner.

    The electric grill, Charbroil Patio Bistro, 1200 watts of electric grilling power, pictures as per Chef Jimmy J's request



    Prime NY Strips with coarse sea salt


    freshly ground black pepper


    toasted onion powder


    garlic powder


    And lastly smoked Spanish paprika


    then I put it on the grill and top the other side with coarse sea salt and Morton's seasoned salt


    Got some corn about to come off while the steaks cook


    Steaks resting before dinner while I load the potato's


    My dinner (picture taken in the kitchen because of better lighting)

    Steak, grilled asparagus, corn, a loaded baked potato, and a grilled romaine salad topped with Parmesan cheese, diced tomato, and a little drizzle of pineapple vinegar.




    Should have taken the cut picture in the good light.

    I'll try not to bore you all with another steak thread unless I do something different.

    Well thanks for looking!

    Nothing wrong with a good steak thread, and this is a good one.

    Thanks, one of my favorite steaks, next to the rib eye and porter house (which has the strip too)

    Thanks a lot DaveOmak! I appreciate the nice words.

    Thanks fpnmf! I still can't believe it's been 5 years. My longest relationship before her was 3 months.

    Thanks TJ! Funny typing that, my family calls me TJ but that's for Thomas Jr.

    Thanks ellymae!

    Thanks AL! When I won the electric grill I was gonna sell it until I realized I could use it at my apartment and figured to give it a try. Now I use it very often and couldn't see myself living in an apartment without one.
