HOW TO COOK THE PERFECT STEAK

Author: Gordon Ramsey

This is my absolute favorite way to cook steak. It takes some attention but it is well worth it. You can take an inexpensive piece of meat and turn into something incredibly tender and flavorful. Be patient … it’s worth it.

 

HOW TO BUY A GREAT STEAK

Author: Tasty

MARBELING – Is the amount of fat running through the steak. The fat is the source of flavor and tenderness. It depends on the quality of the animal and how it was raised.

Steaks are graded by their marbeling into 3 categories

  1. Prime (high)
  2. Choice (med)
  3. Select (low)

Look for USDA Prime steaks with high marbeling. Avoid thinly cooked steaks cause they can be overcooked. Look for steaks at least 1″ think

 

Sirloin –  varies in texture – relatively lean

New York Strip – uniform texture / good marbling / moderately tender

 

Rib Eye – Extremely popular steak / higher fat content / very tender and juicy

 

Filet Mignon – Extremely Lean / Not as flavorful but ridiculously tender

Porterhouse – 2 steaks in one. Great for sharing. Best of both worlds

This dish can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Let thaw in the refrigerator a day before you plan on serving it.
