I love steak. It’s full of all the right things.
And though I’ve been cooking it for years, it’s never been quite the right way, and this recipe will share the how with you. Most surprisingly, is just how simple it is.
It’s important to make sure you’re buying grass-fed beef. Most meat in supermarkets is grain-fed, and as you may be aware, that’s not the natural diet of most animal, notably cows. When cows are grass-fed, their bodies function as intended, resulting in a healthy ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6.
Season the beef with salt and pepper, that’s all. After you’ve seasoned it, allow it to sit on a plate and rise to room temperature. Allowing the temperature to rise is not a necessary step, but it does aid the cooking process.
This is a very important step. Retrieve the pan or skillet of your choice, add in butter, bacon grease, or olive oil, and bring it to smoking point. Then add the steaks in, seasoned side down. Hopefully you wont slip like I did and put the seasoned side up first go. Leave them to cook for about 90 seconds per side.
Because of the high heat used to cook the steak, you should get a lovely degree of charring on the outside like so.
Due to the short cooking time per side, we have a medium-rare steak, which is undoubtedly the best way to enjoy.
If, for whatever reason, you’re not a fan of rarer steak, remove the pan from heat, turn the cooktop to low, and cook the steak slowly for as long as it takes to hit how you like it.
