People, this has changed my life. I watched this episode of Alton Brown back in a time long ago when I still watched The Food Network. I was intrigued but never actually did this until last summer when Teresa and I wanted to make steaks for a crowd. This is by far the best way to get a great steak for a very reasonable price (about $45 at a warehouse club). And not only will you get ONE steak, you'll get at least ten PLUS A ROAST. Consider how many meals you're getting for this price! You can freeze the steaks and have them any time you want a great meal.
Watch part one and two to get the details. It takes roughly 20 minutes to trim the loin (it's easy and fun too, if you consider cutting giant cuts of meat fun, which I kind of do...) and you will be shocked how good this tastes.
