Now That's A Steak

It looks like the supermarkets may be raising their game. This week one of the last independant butchers in Hamilton closed it's doors leaving only three to carry on the fight. Our local butchery on 5th Avenue is one of those and looks in no danger of going the same way. These steaks are beef scotch fillet or Boston scotch and as you can see they are two extreme pieces of steak (if you're going to eat steak you may as well do it right).

It is extemely difficult to cook a steak this size to a perfect 'rare' state and admittedly ours were slightly towards the medium. They were however absolutely delicious and the vegetables complimented the large chunks of butchered bovine very well. Simple and classic.
