PB&J.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

Steamed BBQ and spicy pork bao.

Nothing like going to the "international" market down in the barrio and getting the stinkeye for being the only gringo in the place.  It makes me laugh.

Unless you care what your meat looks like, the reverse sear is pointless unless you like a charred exterior.  I could take it or leave it if I'm cooking indoors which is 99% of the time.  I like a tender, uniform medium-rare pink from top to bottom.  A slow roast @ 275º is just right after letting the meat sit under a healthy dose of salt and pepper.

I picked up a three pound sirloin tip on sale and cooked it to medium rare (130º).  It's a little chewy but tastes great.  I should have cooked it to 135º, so I dropped it back into a warm oven with the vegetables to sit for a while.

It should be done by the time I'm finished with my beer. :cheersmate:
Well, the results are in.  The Rib roast was delectable.  My sweet elderly mother, who is a Rib Roast fanatic, says it was the best she ever had.  She won't lie to protect my feelings, so I know she really enjoyed it.
I like a little crust on my Roast, so I reverse sear.  It rests BEFORE I sear it, so once it is seared, it can be cut, immediately.
My Dry Aged Top Sirloin should be ready on January 8th.  This will be a 35 day age.  Should be awesome.  I'll post the results when I try one out.
Tonight, I will eat the first of the  steaks I cut from the same rib loin I cut the roast from.  I simply cannot wait.
This year, I will be aging cuts each month, until my freezer is stocked.  I want to put up Rib eyes, NY Strips, and Top Sirloins.  No sense in aging Tenderloins.  Not enough fat to protect the meat, and it is already tender enough.  So, I just wet age them a week or so, and cut them into steaks, 2 inches thick. 
Good Eats to all.
War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over. -- Gen William T. Sherman

Had an egg white omelet with spinach and bacon cooked almost black on the side. Love burned bacon. No idea why.

AYCE China Buffet after work. They have both a sushi station and Mongolian grill. Not bad for ten bucks plus your drink.   The sushi chef recognizes me and will grab my plate and fills it full of fresh rolls and Sashimi

Ribeye and grits (lard, shallots, chicken stock, heavy cream, quick grits, Parmesan, and homemade chili spices). :II:

I prefer quick grits with a 5:1 liquid ratio with 4c stock and 1c cream.  It seems to work better for me.

Creole chicken and green bean casserole.

Nine-inch sautée pans make great single- or double-serving casserole dishes.

Grits with mascarpone.  Not a lot of flavor, but very creamy.
