Any Roadfooder is always invited to my house.
What expertise does it take to cook a great steak anyway? When I go out to a restaurant (which is rare in this day and age) I usually order something I that never make at home.
A nice crispy piece of duck or perhaps some venison.
I'm a cheapskate.... what can I say?
I don't think it takes expertise to cook a great steak, but some of the great steak restaurants have more powerful ovens than we tend to have in our homes, which can make a big difference in getting the meat right, in my opinion. In addition, before I'd come to your home for steak, I'd like to know where you got the steak, how long it had aged, etc. The great steakhouses tend to get their steaks from the top cattle, and take great pains to age the steak for a certain amount of time after they buy it.
Also, I notice most steaks at the grocery store are choice, not prime. I suppose one could get prime steaks if they don't run a restaurant, but I seldom have had that opportunity. No offense, but if you're serving choice, I'd prefer a hot dog.
