You know… I’ve preferred ribeyes for most of my life. In fact, when making a simply prepared steak I almost never use anything other than ribeye, rib cap, or filet / filet tail. (Filet obviously isn’t nearly as good, but it is a lot less caloric.) But the past few days I’ve had this strange craving specifically for a strip steak — I literally haven’t had one in years. So I went to Costco and got a package. Wow. They really are special, too. The flavors seem deeper toned than on a ribeye and it was delicious. I will go back to alternating between ribeyes and strips, I think.
NB: Served with very good 2020 Pegau. Very yummy. Should be killer in 8-9+ years.
