Folks, how do you cook a steak?
Posted Tue Jan 07, 2014 06:07 AM
But is there an even better way? I use the word cook, because I don't know the right one in English. Fry? Grill? Or something. How do you do it? Are you worldly famous for your steak? Share your recipe with me, please.
I have this great steak in the kitchen. I'm cooking it for my man tonight. I wanna impress him. I'm challenged in the kitchen, so, explain your magic in lay(wo)man terms.
I'm making potatoes, carrots and parsnip to accompany it. I wanted to roast the thing, but I don't know if I'm going to get it right.
He made me a chocolate mousse this morning. I wanna make something super in return.

1) over a charcoal grill (or gas grill). get the grill VERY hot, then plop the steak down on the grate. watch the side fo the steak, you should be able to see a rare part on the top away from the heat, and a cooked part on the hot side. When it looks like the "cooked" part on the edge goes up around 1/3 of the way, flip the steak over. As the other side cooks, if you are inexperienced, cut into it a little to make sure it is still rare or at least pink on the inside. Take it off well before it is cooked all the way thru!!!
Cover with cooked onions and mushrooms. just before you swerve it, put a little pad of butter on top of the warm steak and let it melt.
2) Broil it (gas flame or electric heater) above it in your oven. get the broiler very hotfirst. Same technique as above, but it will have less flavor. get the steak as close to broiler as the oven allows.
3) heat up a pan containing peanut or canola oil get it very hot (run an exhaust fan in the kitchen). Put steak in pan and cook as above. DO NOT do this without a shirt on!!
the key is to cook on very high heat, very quickly. You want the outside browned well (almost charred) and the inside barely warm to slightly cooked.

I've done it like before, taking care to put it on very hot oil, like Spud says. I did rub salt, Vid, but no pepper. Next time. It was so soft and moist! Super.
I've added rosemary and a tid bit of oregano to the roast. It was delicious.
Now I just need to learn to make some more stuff. I can fry eggs and steak and make instant coffee.
My man knows how to make chocolate mousse and fuck the wife on the kitchen table.

But it is about Steak. But the eating of one
OMG Unfucking believable. She must have an adrenaline drip to stoke such a metabolism, to burn that.

1) Bring the steak out of the fridge. leave it out of the packaging for 15-20 min so it can raise to room temp.
2) salt and pepper the steak ( Kosher or sea salt) NEVER table salt
3) place on grill. Turn only once per side
4) after its to temp ( rare,med, etc) place on a plate and cover loosely with foil for 10-15 so it can rest.

Indeed. I've learned that on the internet. I read I should salt and wait at least 40 min before cooking. I've done it so and it worked well.
And for a 2 cm steak, putting it on the very hot pan (with some oil) for 3 min per side gets it to be juicy in the inside and with a lovely crust on the outside.
I'm also reserving it for 5 min after cooking (rest) and when I cut it, I do it perpendicular to the fibers.
