Ken buys the rib-eye steak from the butcher, right outside our front gate.
The butcher has a shop across the river in Thésée. He came by a couple weeks ago in his truck and told us he'd drive by every Tuesday, around 12:30 or so. We went by his shop the other day and bought a big piece of faux-filet (sirloin steak) to test out his products. It was delicious. So when he came around last week, we stopped him and bought some sausages, smoked bacon, and some other things.
This photo doesn't show how big this steak was. It was 755 grams, over 1.5 pounds. We didn't eat it all at once.
Yesterday, when he came around again, we had decided to buy a piece of entrecôte (rib-eye steak). I cooked it on the grill, and boy, was it ever good. So I think we have made customers of ourselves and will be buying our meat and deli products from this guy from now on. Right outside our door. No waiting. Yum.
