Cumbrae’s Great Alternative Grilling Steaks, Part 1

GREAT ALTERNATIVE GRILLING STEAKS

In this video, Cumbrae’s owner Stephen Alexander gives you the insight into the relatively unexplored world of alternative grilling steaks. We explore the part of the animal the cuts come from, how to best prepare them and how to ask for and select the best one for your individual palate.

These alternative grilling steaks are important to Cumbrae’s nose-to-tail eating philosophy and sustainable farming practices. Not to mention, they are also great value at half the price of premium cuts and are a great way to serve steak at a big summer BBQ. Enjoy!

The Cumbrae’s tradition of farm-to-fork quality started over a decade ago when third-generation butcher Stephen Alexander first brought Cumbrae Farms’ naturally raised meats to Toronto’s food connoisseurs.

Cumbrae’s has become Toronto’s meeting place for people who love to buy, prepare and eat great food. For leading chefs, ardent connoisseurs and families who value quality, Cumbrae’s enthusiastic staff set the standard for personal service, great cooking advice and true enjoyment of food.

What Is The Best Way To Season A Prime Rib Of Beef?-Crawford Farm Meats Ect.

 

Total Prep and Cook Time: 3 hours 10 minutes

What You’ll Need:

One beef rib roast, standing (about four to seven ribs))
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
Large grain salt (kosher salt) about one half tsp per bone
Half tbsp of softened butter per rib
Roasting pan (large) with no less than three inch sides
Two tbsp of flour
One quart of beef broth (keep cold)

What To Do:

Take prime rib from fridge and put in pan. You will not need a rack because the rib bones make a natural one. Rub the whole surface of the roast with the butter, and then coat it evenly with you salt and black pepper.

Leave your prime rib at room temperature for two hours. Preheat oven to four-hundred and fifty degrees F. When oven is hot, put in roast and cook it for twenty minutes to sear outside of roast. After twenty minutes turn down oven to three-hundred twenty-five degrees F. Roast until desired internal temperature is reached (see the guide below). Medium-rare will take about fifteen minutes per pound.

Transfer in large platter, and let rib rest, loosely cover it with foil for thirty minutes before serving. If you cut into meat too early it will cause a loss of juice.

To Make Your “Au Jus” Sauce:

While rib is resting, pour off all but two Tbsp of the fat from pan and  then place on your stove top over med heat. Add some flour and cook, stir for five minutes to form roux. Pour in beef broth and whisk into roux. Scrape all caramelized drippings from bottom of the pan.

Turn heat to high, cook sauce for ten minutes until reduced and thickened slightly (will not be heavy sauce). Adjust seasoning as needed. Then strain and serve with the prime rib.

Internal Temperature Guide:

These are the temps to remove the beef, and not the final temp. Roast will continue to cook after it’s removed.

Rare: remove @ 110 degrees F. (final temp about 120)

Medium-Rare: remove @ 120 degrees F. (final temp about 130)

Medium: remove @ 130 degrees F. (final temp about 140)

Where can I find a prime rib restaurant in Manhattan, especially in mid – Manhattan area?

I am looking for a restaurant that does prime rib, ie one of the best cuts of beef slow cooked in prime rib style.

Thanks.

I love prime rib and make a point to eating at steak houses often.

In my opinion, the best prime rib in NYC can be found at Ben Benson. (It’s not just the steak that’s good there btw, everything is excellent). It’s located on 52nd st b/w 6th & 7th.

Smith & Wollensky on 49th & 3rd also serves up a wonderful prime rib.

How do I perfectly prepare a sirloin steak……?

I’d like one cooked medium-rare and one medium, and I’m looking for that restaurant-quality taste and texture.

I can cook it on either a George Foreman grill (which I don’t really like to use because I always manage to overcook meat on that thing), or either a cast-iron skillet or a regular non-stick pan. What should I use to season them, how high heat should I use, and how long should I cook them?

The reason you overcook with a George Foreman is that it presses the meat–somthing that restaurants do when they want to cook a steak past medium. Given the choices listed, I would use the cast iron (Outback uses a flat grill for all their steaks). At my restaurant, we only use kosher salt and fresh ground pepper for steaks. Heat the skillet over high heat with nothing in it until blazing hot. Put in the steak and cook for about 1 to 1 1/4 minutes per side (MR or Med) then remove to a warm plate and cover loosely with aluminum foil for at least five minutes–this "resting" step is critical! It makes the difference between a steak that is seared on the outside and rare in the middle and one that is perfectly cooked all the way through. TIP: cooking times may vary, depending on how hot your burner is, thickness of the pan & steak, etc. Use the "poke test" to determine doneness. While your left hand is completely relaxed, poke the ball of your left hand (near the base of your thumb) with your right index finger. How much it gives is approximately the amount that a rare cooked steak will give when you poke it. Now touch your left index finger to your left thumb and poke again in the same place. Now it will be slightly firmer–this is medium rare. Your middle finger touching your thumb will be medium, and so on down the line. Now you don’t have to know the time (other than approximately), you just need to know the firmness of the cooked steak! Enjoy!

which is a better cut of beef? prime a or prime aaa? thanks?


I don’t think they classify beef as a or aaa. I’ve seen it classified a through e which is based on maturity. I’ve given you a link below to beef quality classifications.

where do you guys buy your meats? legs of lamb, beef steak etc,’?

We have been going to Coles and Woolies and buying fillet steak not the cheap rump or stuff, and legs of lamb for $20 and getting them home cooking them (searing not stewing steaks) (cooking roasts at 180 for at least 2 hours) and they are tough like rubber. We had a bbq with family and spent considerable money for a pre chrissy get together.

Such a rip off and such bad quality. I know most of the stuff sold in supermarkets is mutton not actual lamb. I have heard about market farmers where you can order farm fresh produce online. Has anyone done this if so what are the good places/companies and how much does it cost? I am assuming its more.

Thanks merry Christmas everyone!
Wow one person actually gave me some half decent info. Nobody gave me a website except her and even if i wanted to buy from there I am not in that area. BTW First guy its not a forum for you to be telling me I overcook food. Its the butchers fault for selling shite food. At astronomical prices.

I buy the organic beef & lamb from Woolworth’s & sometimes I order free range lamb online from farmer dave http://www.farmerdavedirect.com/ His lamb is beautiful, I usually get a leg of lamb & butterfly it so it is flat, marinade it in olive oil, garlic, sea salt & rosemary overnight & cook it on a hot bbq.

I really recommend buying organic & free range meat, the taste & quality is far superior & if better for the environment & your body.

I would also suggest you slow cook your beef & lamb, I have never had a roast go rubbery. Seal them first in a hot pan & place in an oven at 250c then turn down to 150c after 20 minutes. for about a 3kg roast you would slow cook for 2.5-3 hours (I recommend using a meat thermometer to test when its cooked.
