We recently spent some time on Maui, testing the new Mr. Steak portable infrared grills and enjoying the beauty of this island paradise. We took the grills on a rugged off-roading adventure in the mountains, hiked through a bamboo forest to a remote waterfall, and enjoyed a picnic on a tropical beach. We grilled steak on our deck, and the local catch on a fishing boat in a beautiful turquoise bay. We grilled everything from ribs to pineapple on this highly versatile, high performance grilling machine.
During our hike we crossed a river filled with slick rocks and boulders. On the way back somebody slipped and the grill submerged into the river. We thought that was it – the grill was toast. Amazingly enough, we fired it up the next day with no problem. We were thrilled at just how durable this grill is….some might even say it can swim.
After a week of grilling adventures on Maui we are confident that the new Mr. Steak grills not only give you the steakhouse experience wherever you are with its 1000 degrees of grilling power, but it is built tough and can handle any challenge.
The USDA determines this primarily based on marbling, but there are two factors they use to do this: quality grades for tenderness, juiciness, and flavor; and yield grades for the amount of usable lean meat on the carcass.
Prime beef is produced from young, well-fed beef cattle. It has abundant marbling (the amount of fat interspersed with lean meat), and is generally sold in restaurants and hotels. Prime roasts and steaks are excellent for dry-heat cooking such as broiling, roasting, or grilling.
Choice beef is high quality but has less marbling than Prime. Choice roasts and steaks from the loin and rib will be very tender, juicy, and flavorful and are suited for dry-heat cooking. Many of the less tender cuts can also be cooked with dry heat if not overcooked. Such cuts will be most tender if braised, roasted or simmered with a small amount of liquid in a tightly covered pan.
