Hanger steak is one of those cuts of beef people don’t really know about or overlook. Originally called a butchers steak, many restaurants served this cut for staff meals. This robust steak is one of the most underrated cuts of beef with a gentle price tag to boot.

Rack of Lamb

Rack of Lamb
The reverse sear not only works for large roasts and steaks it’s a great option for rack of lamb. It produces an evenly cooked rack of lamb. Pink from edge to edge, with a bronzed crust on the outside. I like starting meats in a low oven until almost cooked, and finishing directly on white hot hardwood charcoal.

I like using a mason jar to make this dressing. I add what is needed, the remaining dressing is easily stored for another use in the fridge. Remove 30-45 minutes prior to using. It keeps about a month.
