Malaysian Steak Skewers

Malaysian Steak Skewers

Last summer, we made this delightful Bon Appetit recipe. I forgot to record it at the time and kept trying to find the recipe online. I remembered that it was a Malaysian-style dish, but because Bon Appetit didn't have "Malaysian" in the title, my half-hearted attempts to find it bore no fruit. Finally, I used the power of Google and, somewhat embarrassingly, found the recipe in 5 seconds.

Steak

IMG_1458.JPG

I basically don't eat steak out anymore. It's just... I can make it better, reliably.

Quick guide: Sear :30/:30; Near heat: 3/3m Smoke 1.5/1.5, Sear :30/:30, Rest 3

Sourcing

I only buy the "Natural" (no antibiotics, grass fed, grain finished) prime, bone-in delmonico (ribeye) steak from Canales Quality Meats in Eastern Market here in DC. Grass fed beef is much leaner than grain, but with an amazing taste - and, it's better for you, with a much better balance of Omega fatty acids. Get the most marbled cut you can find, but realize that it'll still be about half as marbled as a grain-fed steak. And for the love of all things tasty, get the bone in.

Preparation

Up to four days ahead, but ideally at least 24 hours, rinse the steak and pat dry. Wrap in cheesecloth (~1 layer per day). Place it on a rack in the top back of your fridge. This is an at-home method to dry-age your cut, and it tenderizes the meat and deepens the flavor. Watch a video on the technique here: http://lifehacker.com/5865849/dry+age-steak-at-home-for-steakhou... . Vary the smoke/indirect heat time by the aging length - the more aged the meat, the closer to 1.5mins/side you want. For a steak you bought today, I'd move that to 2-3 mins/side.

Two hours before you're going to put it on the grill, take it out and unwrap the steak. Plop it down on some waxed paper and salt both sides (I like using a bit of alderwood smoked salt and some kosher salt, about a teaspoon or two per side). Let it sit - it will juice and then re-absorb, bringing in the smoke and salt flavors deep into the meat.

Texas Smoked Brisket

Brisket

Brisket (give at least 60 minutes per pound, though thicker or larger non-point cuts might take as much as 90 mins / pound) 4 Pounds is a good base point. You should bring the brisket up to room temperature before anything else

Prepare the spice rub and a mop

Spice rub: Salt (smoked salt better) and coarse ground pepper in a 3:5 ratio, with a few other spices like onion and garlic powder, a dash of cayenne, ground mustard seeds and even a few ground juniper berries to taste.

BBQ'ed Ribs

Ribs
  • 1 rack of Pork Spare Ribs (not the "country style" which are thicker and harder to cook thouroughly)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sauce (recipe follows)

Salt and pepper (with smoked salt, if available) a rack of ribs as it comes up to room temperature, 30 minutes to an hour ahead of BBQing.

Over a medium flame, sear the ribs on both sides. Move away from direct heat, add wood chips, and let cook via smoke and indirect heat at 250° for ~4 hours (2-3 for baby back ribs, more if you're smoking multiple racks). This brings in the smoke flavor and slowly cooks the rack.
