HOW TO COOK A PERFECT STEAK
Tips to get tender, juicy steaks!
- Let steaks sit out at room temperature for 15-30 minutes. Pat dry with paper towel.
- Season generously on each side with salt and pepper.
For The Skillet
- Using a cast iron skillet provides steaks with even cooking and the best, charred flavours similar to a barbecue, but any pan will work.
- Preheat your pan on high heat before carefully adding your oil.
- When your skillet is smoking, season steaks with salt and pepper just before they go in to your pan.
- Your kitchen will get smokey! Keep your exhaust fan on high.
- Add only two steaks in at a time, or you won’t get a nice sear.
For The Grill
- Set up the grill at least 15 minutes before you cook. It needs to get hot before putting anything on it.
- Find the hottest areas by carefully and slowly waving your hand 6 inches above the grill.
- Using tongs, lightly grease grill plates with a folded paper towel dipped in oil.
- When oil is smoking, grill until they release without sticking.
How can you tell if a steak is done?
- Rare steaks. Soft textured steaks that maintain an indent when pressed will be rare — 140°F (60°C) internal temperature
- Medium-rare steaks. Steaks with a soft and springy feel will be medium rare — 145°F (63°) internal temperature
- Medium steaks. Steaks with a springy feel will be medium (bounce back up fast) — 160°F (70°) internal temperature
- Well done steaks. Firm steaks are well done — 170°F (76°) internal temperature
Remember, steak will continue to cook after being removed from the skillet or grill. Allow to rest for 5 – 10 minutes to let the juices settle before serving.
While steaks are resting, sear (or grill) your shrimp, then get your creamy sauce going! If grilling your meat/seafood, you will need to grab a pan to cook the cream in.
- You can use shrimp with tails on or off.
- Try to find fresh wild caught shrimp. Frozen shrimp is good too, but fresh will always have a better flavour.
- Heavy (thickened) cream can be substituted with half and half, light cream or evaporated milk!
What wine goes well with Steak Recipe?
I choose a white wine to go with this. A light Chardonnay or Pinot Gris pairs really well. I also love a chilled glass or Rosé.
