Now, thanks to the Internet, Lobel's ships their amazing meat selection around the country, giving everyone from celebrities and prominent executives to people who value the finest quality meats the chance to enjoy excellent meat and one-on-one quality service.
Lobel's of New York
has expanded its Upper East Side store onto the Net, shipping prime, dry-aged beef, prime lamb, fresh veal and Kurobuta pork, all delivered fresh the next day to customers all over the country.
I was privileged enough to try the Lobel's Natural Prime Dry-Aged Porterhouse, often considered the best cut. A t-bone separates a large strip steak from the filet, making the Porterhouse a perfect blend of lean, mild filet and the rich steak flavor of the strip. In the capable hands of my chef brother, the Porterhouse became a melt-in-your mouth experience after being sous-vide in its own juices and then seasoned lightly and pan-seared. Paired with bordelaise, glazed sugar-snap peas, melted shallot marmalade and bacon-roasted potatoes, the Porterhouse was as exquisite as any I've had in steakhouses around the country.
The Porterhouse and information about all of Lobel's prime meats, as well as cooking suggestions and recipes, can be found at Lobels.com.
