    Restaurants that serve steak with the sauce dumped on it are one of my real pet peeves. Put the sauce in a little dish ffs.

    Looking back on my life, the one thing I wish i'd have discovered earlier was good salt.

    haha guessing this was supposed to be a quote of me :p

    yeah, i put them in the fridge for later, as you don't freeze awesome steaks if you can help it. Also you DO NOT touch them with plastic. yuck. So glass containers it is.


    yep, a good quality salt is worth so much, it really transforms a dish.

    its 8-10$ per box of this stuff, but it lasts a year or two, so it's worth it over the $2 table salt garbage.

    Umm, yes, you too. :)
    I was a bit overcome at the one-two punch of Thick Cut Steaks followed by Biscoff Cheesecake served with a fine Stout, didn't really make that clear.
    Nice one with the storage containers, I'll be trying that next time I buy a butcher-it-yourself cut. :thumbup:

    And yeah, Maldon (or other good) salt is... really salty.
    It sounds Derpy Derp obvious, but you really don't need to use as much.
    I had a box of Maldon sea salt flakes that lasted well over a year... I should buy some more!

    I think that most of you are missing the point. Mr Chilled's steak looks pretty good, but he's really just showing off that he has lettuce :lol:

    Half of the steak is saved for an early lunch with a 2nd set of 4 eggs.

    Note the glass container has an inbuilt seperator, not removable its part of the glass moulding. So no leaks between food, no cross soggy hahaha

    Yeah.

    About 200grams in that half steak.

    Also...when your steak is large enough to warrant cooking on more than 2 sides...

    I mean, yes, load up on them protein and carbs if you're about to go and charge a German trenchline, but.... :)

    I miss the days when I could glance at a Full English and honestly think to myself "yes, that's probably just enough calories to see me through to lunchtime..." :(

    Still.... Worth the expanding waistline for a good breakfast.
    Love me a full fry up breaky... If it moves, kill it, fry it and put it on a plate... Now top it with a couple of eggs.... Oh yeah.

    Let's not forget the little puddings made from the seasoned and solidified blood of just one of the many types of animal that you are consuming.
    Possibly also some offal, depending on just how busy a day you've got ahead. Anglo culture has its weird food traditions like all the rest... :lol:
