Got a new Thermapen last week, finally bit the bullet even though it seemed outrageously expensive. Since it arrived I have been amazed. Don't get me wrong, I love my Maverick and it has it's place, but the Thermapen is soooooo fast I can check all kinds of temps in different places very quickly. My old pen was cheap and took about 30 seconds to be at temp, so four checks in the smoker meant an open door for two minutes or more. Then, since I just got it, I had to play with it. We were at the store and they had some USDA PRIME Ribeyes on sale. Well, I've been wanting to try the basic salt and pepper iron skillet method on a good piece of meat, this was my chance. I seasoned and let it rest on the counter for about an hour, then hit a smoking hot iron skillet turning often. I used that Thermapen to bring the center up to 127 degrees and pulled it from the pan. The temp stopped rising at 132, let it rest a few minutes and served it with pan roasted potatoes and steamed asparagus. Sorry I didn't take pics, but I will next time for sure. That steak was beautiful, cut like butter and had an amazing texture, just enough chew to it, but also melt in your mouth. Yep, I'll be doing that again, thanks Thermapen!
