Dec 9: Sauerkraut & Ham on a Brioche Bagel; Prime Rib with Béarnaise Sauce, Garlic Butter Mushrooms and Tabouli

Lunch

We toasted a Brioche Bagel and topped with Sauerkraut Apple Salad.

  • The Brioche Bagel is 58c per serve
  • Swiss is 34c per serve
  • The Artisanal Kraut was $3.29 or 42c per serve
  • Black Forest Ham is $3.29 per pack, or 66c per serve
  • Add 40c for Mayonnaise & Cocktail Sauce for the dressing.

A pretty good ‘sandwich’ for $2.40 per serve.

Dinner

Our delayed birthday celebration went well, with the Single Bone Prime Rib (a.k.a. Tomahawk Steak) being sous vide to perfection followed by a quick, hot sear before being sliced and served.

The Rib was sous vide then seared in its own fat for about 60 sec a side.
  • The Prime Rib was $24.34 but we’ll get three serves from that, or $8.11 per serve, which is double what you’d get in a steak house
  • Mushrooms were $2.69 or $1.35 each
  • Butter adds 50c per serve
  • The Tabouli is $2.99 and we served half, or 72c per serve
  • The Béarnaise sauce was $3.29 and we used about ⅓, or 55c per serve.

The Prime Rib was perfect and it all came together to make an excellent birthday celebration for $11.23 per serve.
