South Louisiana-Yes, it is HOT
Dinner night with friends tonight. Was so nice outside we decided it was time for steaks. My friend picked up some 2" thick prime NY strips...I should have taken a picture of them raw, they were beauties!! Anyways, I offered to make the Oyster mushroom, Crab, and Brie soup for first course. We ate that with a great bottle of Chardonnay..

(no pics of the soup). But here is the thread last time I made it...

Seasoned the steaks with sea salt, Cracked Black pepper, olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic and fresh chopped rosemary from the garden. Let those marinate while we got the coals hot on the green egg and ate our soup.

Onda grill @350-400*F with a couple chunks of hickory wood...pulled them off around 123ish degrees to rest.

Oh my was that steak good! One of the best strips I think I have ever had! Had the steaks with steamed fresh green beans and a side salad. Paired that with a 2015 Australian Barossa Valley Shiraz wine. WOW was that a GREAT wine! I will be going back to buy more of that!

Thanks civil! T'was really really good my friend! We decided we did not need a starch with the meal because the soup was so decadent and rich. The salad and green beans were enough.
I got to know if you dipped a slice of the steak in the soup???? If you didn’t you need to do a do over and do it!!!! lol.
