Hello all!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello I am a new user here.

I am a Prep Cook in New Rockford, ND. I work at the Dakota Roadhouse. We serve Steak, Chicken, Seafood, and Pasta. We make the best Broasted Chicken in the area and are known for our Soups. I work under the skilled guidance of the Executive Chef Tom DeLong who is formaly of Northtown in Fargo. I know you probably never heard of him, but he is a awsome boss and I like to brag about him. :)

Other than the usual prep work (chopping, slicing,... more chopping :lol: ) I cook all the Soups, and Sauces. I backe the breads,and pies. I butcher the steaks.... though I have not mastered butchering a sirloin. Problem is I do maybe one every other week. Rib Eye we sell like hot cakes.... Prime Rib too but Sirloin does not move as fast. Personaly I like it better. I also cook and serve all the buffet parties.

I have come on here to get fresh ideas for the Roadhouse. I look forwaed to exchanging ideas with all of you.

Hey, I am Jappy, chef workin in Kolkata, india. i am a recent addition to the forum as well.
I was wonderin if i could ask u a few things about ur steaks(since they seem a speciality @ ur place).
We just have 2 kinds of steaks here (a fillet steak (about 220 gms) and a minute steak). Beef isnt that popular here in india, and there arnt too many places selling beef (religious beliefs et all).
i 've read about the different kinds of steaks, but i cant identify them without guessing.
do u guys stick the steak in the oven after about 6 min on the grill to get a well done or even a medium done?
we serve mashed potatoes or boiled vegetables along, what do u guys do?
looking forward to an insight into steaks as they shouldbe.
thanks a ton buddy.
