I am not writing about a restaurant today. There are times when we just want a great piece of steak at home and I just want to share my favorite butcher with you - D.A. Barsch German Butcher Shop on Route 9, Toms River. We used to go to the German Butcher in Forked River to get our steaks and they are wonderful but if you live in a bit further north, you may want to consider this place. I also believe that they are relatives to the one in Forked River. We usually get the New York Strip Steaks and they are really nice, usually we requested to have them cut to 1 inch thick! We only use salt and pepper for seasoning before we put them on our cast iron grill pan for 7 minutes(basically 3.5 minutes on each side), let them sit for 5 minutes…we like it medium rare and the steak have lots of meat favor! Other things we like from the store include the stuffed peppers(with sausages and garlic) and the cranberry walnut bread. Detlev, the owner and his daughter, Morgan are really friendly and nice. If you want to stay home and have a nice steak, here is an option!
