Red Steak?

Post  Fenman on Wed Apr 02, 2008 4:41 pm

Had some steak last night with the smoked eggs i did few days ago, it turned out very red in colour right through but did not affect the taste. I smoked it with pear wood, was this the reason for the colour?
Eggs turned out looking like pheasant eggs as they were very brown & not very appertising after 2h cold smoking. Mrs wouldn't eat them!
Still it all tasted good to me & was cooked just right.
That's it now, we are all smoked out pig (till the weekend)

That colour is the result of smoking the meat, I have cooked ribs that took on a real reddish colour from the cherry wood I used.

Nothing wrong with those eggs. You might have better luck selling them to the wife in an egg salad sammich..

Yep, color is from the smoking. You could have added a sear on to that (reverse sear) and had it be more what you are used to seeing.
