Contest(Aug) - 'The Perfect Steak'

Postby alisonb » Sun Aug 07, 2016 4:20 am

Prepare the 'perfect' steak(or somebody else can for you). Whilst steak is resting quickly take a few pics. Now savour the aroma and flavour of the steak to your heart's content. A sip of good red wine in between mouthfuls isn't too bad either ;-) . Now that you have satisfied your appetite, peruse photographs, select one and enter our contest. :D :D

You have time to submit your entry up until 21 Aug, the voting poll will be held from 22 - 31 Aug. All entries to be submitted via personal message to myself, alisonb. The winner will be announced on 1 Sept. Pic dimensions should be 640 x 480 pix(or close to that) so please resize before submitting.

Anyone wanna bet a steak dinner that M-5 will enter a picture of one so raw the steer will still be mooing?

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

There's a big difference between rare and raw. IMO And 8 to 10 seconds per side is rare to M5, and it's really not that bad.

You beat me to it 5, what we have here is a bunch of Internet cattle folk who in real life are vegan tree hungers they just surf the web huddled away in their studio apartments (which is still their parents basement). So go upstairs folks, ask mom to cook a steak for the dog but take a pic of it before fluffy buries it in moms flower bed! :hide: :hide: :D

I'm not afraid of hard work, I can lay down next to it and fall asleep without a problem.
