Whether it's summer or winter, cooking steaks is always in season. And if you are cooking a steak, we want to make sure your final product is something you are proud to serve or enjoy yourself.
Cooking the Steaks
We suggest using your indoor oven or outdoor grill to cook your steaks, whether it is a strip steak or ribeye steaks these methods should leave you with a great tasting meal!
First, remove the steaks from the refrigerator (even if they were marinating) and let them come to room temperature for approximately 30 minutes - it will help them cook more evenly.
Heat a skillet on the stove with a bit of oil ( 1/2 Tablespoon or less.) When the oil is hot, sear each side of the steak(s) for approximately 1 minute to lock in the juices.
At the same time, turn the oven onto the Broil setting.
After searing, transfer to an oven-safe dish or skillet and place in the oven on the broil setting.
Cook on broil for three minutes, remove the skillet (with an oven-safe glove) and flip the steak in the pan and return it to cook for another three minutes.
When the steak has cooked for a total of six minutes, use a meat thermometer to test the temperature of the steak to make sure it's the desired degree of done. It's recommended to cook to 145 degrees F and let rest for 3 minutes (medium.)
Heat the grill to high - whether it's charcoal or gas. If charcoal, you can tell it's ready when the coals have the ash covering the outsides.
Prepare your steak with any dry rub ingredients.
Next, we recommend, basting your steak with an herb & melted butter mixture.
You are now ready to grill - place your steak on the hot grill and don't flip until it has charred marks, approximately 3 minutes.
After approximately three minutes and with the grill lid still open, flip your steak and carefully re-apply the butter mixture to the side facing you & close the grill lid.
Continue to repeat this process - three to four more times, in most cases, to achieve a medium-done steak. However, we recommend using a meat thermometer and taking into consideration the thickness of your steak.
Recommended internal temperature for fresh beef is 145 degrees F. (and let it rest for 3 minutes prior to slicing.)
