Newport steaks

I was falling asleep in lab yesterday, so I left early enough to get to Florence Prime Meats before they closed.

I asked the butcher to suggest a relatively inexpensive cut of beef, and he suggested the Newport steak. It's from the sirloin, the tri-tip part I think, and it was only $11 for two steaks.

I tied them with some twine because it looked like the steaks might unfold in the cooking process. I pan fried them because I wanted to make a red wine sauce, and I finished them in the oven.

They were super good. A little chewy, but hey we're not paying filet mignon prices here.
