I took sort of a mini-mileage run to the 2022 Chicago Seminars. (That’s generally my MO for at least one leg of a Seminars trip.) I flew Burbank (ORD) to Salt Lake City (SLC, where I enjoyed some time on that Sky Club’s Sky Deck) to Seattle (SEA) to O’Hare (ORD).
I sat in Delta Air Lines’ First Class cabin for the final flight. We flew during dinner time — and that gave me a chance to try a new Delta meal!
Delta emailed me a menu about a week before the trip. Here were my options:
Steak it was! I select the Seared Check as my entree.
High Steaks: Dinner at 31,000 Feet
This turned out to be a rather interesting meal.
I started with the salad — which I really enjoyed.
Then came the main course.
The green beans were crisp and bore some nice flavor.
I’m not a big potato gratin fan. Their texture sort of weirds me out. But this potato gratin was delicious. (Maybe it was all the cheese and heavy cream.)
The tastiest ingredients were the mushrooms and onions! Their flavors absolutely popped.
The steak wasn’t bad. But it wasn’t anything particularly special. It simply didn’t have a lot of flavors. I wish Delta would’ve provided some salt and pepper; this steak desperately needed them.
I’m also curious where exactly the “sear” came into play. I didn’t see or taste any crust from a pan or grill.
Finally, the meal ended with a tasty chocolate chip cookie from Bell’s Cookie Company in Seattle. The cookie feature a light dash of sea salt — which perfectly complemented the rest of the sweet dessert.
(I washed everything down with a Woodford Reserve on the rocks and some water.)
Delta’s Seared Chuck Steak dinner wasn’t anything particularly special. It was fine. I wasn’t hungry afterward. Ironically, the steak took a backseat to the salad, potatoes, mushrooms, onions, and cookie — all of which were delicious.
