Review: Omaha Steaks Beef Tenderloin

Untitled

As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm lucky to receive a number of grill and BBQ items for Christmas.  One of those items was a gift package from Omaha Steaks.  I've had some of their items before, but this was the first time that I received a shipment/gift via UPS.  The assortment of steaks and side dishes was packaged in a styrofoam cooler and arrived frozen and perfectly in tact.

So, for New Year's Eve I grilled up the beef tenderloin steaks for dinner.  I used a very light seasoning and no sauce to let the meat speak for itself.  I grilled them over a ~500 degree grill.  They weren't very thick, so they reached the desired temps pretty quickly.

The family enjoyed the steaks, although for tenderloin they were a little fattier and "chewier" in places than they would have liked.  But the combination of good beef, grilling over a hot charcoal fire, and the dusting of seasoning resulted in a flavorful steak.  Oh, there were no left overs!

I certainly won't look a gift horse in the mouth, but given that I live in a metropolitan area I'm able to get equal or better quality steaks at comparable prices.  So, I won't likely order these on a regular basis.  However, they're certainly worthy of giving or receiving as a gift.

Oh, and their chocolate cake rocks!

Cheers,

Braddog
