Tips for cooking

Make sure the steak is at room temperature:

Cooking the Perfect Steak: Before you start cooking the 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.

Salt steak before cooking:

  • Salt steak for 30 minutes before cooking. This is the best option for those nights when you’re cooking steak on a whim. Salting relatively close to cooking seasons the steak and helps create a dry surface for searing.
  • Salt steak for 24 hours: Salting your steak overnight also creates a dry surface for searing, but with the added bonus of a bit more concentrated flavor in the interior tissue.

Spice After Searing:

Don’t use ground pepper, steak seasoning, or other rubs for pan-seared steaks. The extremely hot pan will burn these spices before they can flavor the steak.

Rub steak with a clove of fresh garlic:

Cut a clove of garlic in half and rub the entire steak with the cut side. Fresh garlic makes for a quick and delicious steak rub.

Use the right cooking fat:

To cook your steak, use an organic butter. Don’t use extra virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil, is delicious, but should not be used to sear steaks. It is too delicate and the smoke point is too low. Unless you’re trying to fumigate your kitchen or send smoke signals, use something more stable. I recommend cooking with organic butter which tastes better and has a higher smoke point.

Add a little flavor after cooking:

After cooking, leave it to rest and rub with a little extra virgin olive oil or butter for an incredible, juicy steak.For more flavour, try one or a combination of the following…

  • Rub the steak with a knob of butter – the sweetness from the butter will make it taste divine!
  • Halve a garlic clove and rub it over the steak every time you turn it.

Cooking times for the perfect steak:

  • Rare steak, remove the steak from the heat at 125°F, about six minutes total cooking.
  • For a medium-rare steak, aim to remove the steak from the heat at about 130°F, about eight minutes total cooking.
  • For a medium steak, 140°F is the sweet spot at a total of nine to 10 minutes cooking.
  • A well-done steak will take about 12 minutes.
