F&F III: Addendum

The French Laundry has a recipe called "Yabba Dabba Doo," which is named for the Flintstones, naturally. It's basically a double-cut beef rib, that's essentially shallow-fried in butter. The result is a steak-thing that's got this incredible, golden crust around the entire thing. It's like encasing a steak in pure deliciousness. One of these days, I'm not going to half-ass it with like 2Tbsp of butter, I'm just gonna toss a whole stick in, or follow their recipe exactly. The problem is that piece of beef is *not cheap*, and I'm terrified of screwing up an expensive cut of meat. At the market today, they had a piece of meat that would have made three of these steaks, and it was $67. I decided to pass, and went with the NYS which was $5/lb, which indicates my level of risk vs. cost for food at this point.
