The Forresters is another Monday steak night special.
They do a $5 steak until they run out, It’s served with chips and a choice of sauce. Now I fully expect this to be somewhat terrible, I mean $5, there’s no way it’s good. but it’s cheap and it’s a good atmosphere in the bar.
I order mine rare, the cut is a 200g sirloin, it was pretty busy and the wait was long. When it finally came out the steak was slightly charred and light brown, clearly showing signs of a pan grilled steak.
The flavour wasn’t bad, I mean for the price I wasn’t expecting waygu, it had a decent amount of seasoning and the meat was adequate. The tenderness left something to be desired, it was slightly chewy and cooked to a medium which made it grainy.
For $5 I can’t say I expected more from the steak in terms of flavour and tenderness but if they had cooked it properly I think the result would have been different.
How well it’s cooked – 4.6
Flavour – 3.9
Tenderness – 4.2
