Steak is actually easy to prepare. You don’t need to go to a restaurant and spend some money. You can do it in your home. Patience is the only key to cooking a perfect steak.
Get the steak out of the fridge and allow it to come up to room temperature about one hour before cooking. Frying or grilling it from cold will stop the heat from penetrating to the middle as efficiently.
Rub the steak with salt, black pepper and pour some oil. Make sure you season it evenly. Allow it to set for ten minutes.
You also need to make sure your pan, griddle or barbecue is super hot before you put the steak.
During cooking, you will need to continuously be turning the steak every minute Never squeeze it down on the pan. This doesn’t cook it quicker, it does, however, release all the beautiful juices. To get a good crust, sear the edge on both sides, this will also lock in the juices of the meat. You will need to continuously be turning the steak every minute until it is well done enough and evenly cooked.
After you have finished cooking, it is time to pull the steak from a pan and place it on a clean plate. Let it rest for at least 5 minutes. Don’t worry cause it won’t get cold yet. Don’t slice it right away, don’t cover or wrap it. Just leave it alone. By resting, it is continuing to cook, and more importantly, the juices are redistributing throughout the steak resulting in a truly wonderful and tender finish to your steak.
