Dream Steak from Montreal’s Atwater Market

We bought this twenty eight ounce t-bone at Boucherie les Viandes at the Atwater Market in Montreal (for $61.70.) It’s Charolais beef (a great strain from Burgundy) organically farmed by the St. Vincent family and dry aged for sixty days! I grilled it for twelve minutes over Mesquite charcoal. The texture was lovely–not a single fibroblast was left in the thing. The aroma and flavour was like a beef version of Jamon Iberico with floral and wine-like notes. A 2010 Gingondas partnered perfectly with the steak.  If you’re carniverous and find yourself in Mtl., call them at 514 937-4269 and get yourself a hunk.
