As I showed before, I did find some buffalo steaks at Balducci's. Our Whole Foods does not carry buffalo. Balducci's only had a few vacuum packed cuts. I grabbed the rib eye:
I think under any other circumstances I would not have picked it up. Unlike Redhot's strip steaks at $19.99/pound, Balducci's carried only half-pound steaks at the bargain-basement price of $33.98/pound. If it weren't for the throwdown, I would've gone right for the Wagyu, which was considerably less expensive actually.
For lunch today, I seasoned this with some Foil Hat Rub, Lawry's and parsley.
I heated up the grill and cooked it hot and very fast:
Must say the flavor was quite nice. It was a bit tougher than a choice beef ribeye, but that was expected due to the leanness.
Overall, no complaints here. I'm glad I tried it, which is really the primary purpose of these throwdowns. Thanks Redhot!
