Cooked celebratory steaks tonight. 2" thick ribeyes cooked on the rare side of medium rare. I buy whole ribeyes a couple of times a year and butcher them myself and freeze them wrapped in foil inside a zip-top bag individually to avoid freezer burn. I was lucky this time because I managed to score a marbling closer to Prime while only paying for Choice.

Divided one of the steaks between the 5 year old, the 11 year old and the 43 year old. Kids devoured theirs, 5 year old begged for more. Wife throws 2/3 of hers away. Reason? Fat. Most of the meat she pitched because of the marbling.

I'll be damned if I'm going to waste one of my good steaks on her again. If she wants a steak she can have a chunk of sirloin. The kids and I will split the good stuff.

My wife is the exact same. I get me a well marbled T-bone or porterhouse and her and the kids get a serlion off the shelf. My kids wouldn't know the difference and I have to burn hers till you need a hacksaw to cut it. So I wont shell out the extra cash if they cant tell the difference anyway.

And besides picking around the marbling, mine wants hers well done. Now that's a waste of good meat. I fix her a strip now. No fat & tough as a week old dog turd !!!!

Cook her an eye round for now on. When I cook steak my plate is perfectly clean and the wife's plate has all these leftover morsels all over the rim. Those are the fatty pieces aparrently. I didn't notice mine had fat because I don't give a damn.

Once again, my wife is the same. I cooked some ribeyes, and she did the smae thing, cut around the "nasty" fat. She actually prefers sirloin. That;s fine, she gets the $4 steak and I have more to spend on mine. At least she still likes it cooked medium.
