New Menus At YS..

Hi folks..Just had a PM from a Disney buddy who has heard the chefs at YS are bringing out some new goodies on the menu, including a 36 oz porterhouse steak for two people ($110) Not sure how I'd share that with my other half, or how it would be served.?...I once had a Chateaubriand for two in Greece and it was served on a silver platter..There must have been about twenty medallions of mouth watering beef.. I'am getting hungry thinking about it..Has anyone heard anything.?

Yep..Wow..$110 is a hefty slab of meat..Might change my steak choice now as my DW has her eyes on the Angus Fillet..In one menu they have a 18oz Kansas City then on another it's a 16oz New York strip.. confused According to sources they are cut from the same loin of beef..I need a cooking lesson on American steaks.. clapping

Not sure if this will help but DH got the prime rib last year and was very very happy. I think he is eyeing up the new York strip this year. I am looking at the halibut since I don't eat red meat (weird I know).

NY Strip and KC Strip are essentially the same steak. NY Strips tend to be cut thicker (therefore, weighs more) and sometimes the bone is left on. (Tip: If ever given the option of bone-in or bone-out, always go with bone-in. That bone adds soooooo much flavor.) KC Strips are almost never served with the bone and tend to be more heavily spiced or marinated before cooking.

I'm a purist. I think that the only seasoning a good steak needs is a little salt. So I would go with a NY Strip over a KC Strip.

I'm the same Barbara, anytime I see people covering steak with sauce I shutter.... a little salt and a good seer on each side is all it needs!!!

And now I want a steak...

I also cringe if I ever hear anyone order a steak medium-well or well. Medium-rare is the way to go!

We'll when I was a young lad I always ordered steak " Well Done"... Then when I got older it was " Med to Well " ...Then when I got that bit older it was " Medium ".... Now that I'am ancient I like it " Medium to Rare "...Is there a logical reason for this..? confused

I don't like undercooked meat or blood when I'm eating it. I don't like chewy meats. I always get mine well done.

Me too. I always tell the wait staff that I understand the chefs hate to do it well done, but I like my meat dead, and not mooing at me. biggrin

I was always an well done girl too. While I was preggo with Blondie, the less it was cooked the better. Not sure why but that's when my change happened!

Me and my mam are always of the mindset "as long as there is no blood coming out of it that's ok with us" but not well done because that's too chewy!!!!

I used to feel the exact same way until I met my husband as he has slowly but surely worked me down to medium. I never liked steak very much before and it turns out the reason is because I was ordering it well done. Well done is what makes it chewy. A good medium rare to medium steak should be like butter! MMMMMMM awesome

Maybe I'll try my steak medium next time I order it and see how I like it.

If you normally order it well done I would suggest ordering it medium well next time around to ease yourself into it. The blood kind of freaked me out at first so medium well was a good segue.

I never liked eating my steaks well done. It's too chewy and puts on a strain on my teeth. Nothing's worse getting a toothache after eating a steak. Having said that, I've always preferred mine medium. I do have some doubts eating my meats rare or mid-rare but since I've always preferred my steaks medium, why change?

Agree..I once took my DW to a Italian restaurant in Cyprus..It had a famous chef working in the kitchen this night, and our server said " Please don't ask for your steak anything above medium as the chef goes crazy." ...LOL...Saying that, I now see that Artist Point has done away with their Northwest Trio and put in a Surf & Turf..Portland to Portland...The turf is Bison.? eek How is that best eaten..?...

I read somewhere online that 90% of ground bison is lean, so it has less fat compared to beef but some feel bison meat is too dry so it may require additional toppings to make it moist. Low and slow is what I've been told is the proper way to cook bison meat in general and for bison or buffalo steaks, medium rare to medium is best because cooking it well done will overcook the meat and make it dry.

If interested, here's a link about cooking with buffalo/bison:
