Ribeyes are the king of steaks, their buttery fatty flavor gives you lots of opportunity to make your seasonings sing. You want to hit your steak with strong flavors to really stand out. I usually stick with White lightning and Double secret steak rub, but when I am looking for a change a blackened steak with blue cheese is an out of this world combination. Spiceology came up with a spice blend featuring this iconic mix to tingle your taste buds. I was a little nervous about the pungent blue cheese would overpower the steak, but I was pleasantly surprised that it just gave a little zip of flavour that paired nicely with the heat from the blackening spice.
Picanha is one of the most sought-after cuts of meat in south America and Brazil specifically. This piece of steak comes from the top cap of the top sirloin. Often cooked rotisserie style over charcoal and then sliced on demand, it makes great steak, impressive service and is relatively easy to cook. Known for being delicious because of its tenderness and big rich fat cap, this steak is sure to impress when cooked properly.
The visual appeal of a perfectly cooked steak is one of my favorite parts of eating a steak. It’s the crispy charred bits around the edge and the cross hatched grill marks from a perfect sear. The darker the sear marks in my books the better. When a steak comes out glistening from the right amount of fat with the right amount of blackness, it’s heaven for me. Black gold steak, is just that, it’s pure gold for me. The blackness of the charcoal really makes the visual appeal that much more, but when combined with the truffle flavour in the seasoning and the base umami flavours, this combination is a whole other level.
