A great steak recipe never fails to impress. Even in this economy, there are still plenty of recipes out there that will leave your taste buds wanting for more. The following recipe is easily done on the grill, done over the top of your gas flame, and one that you can make quickly and inexpensively. With this simple steak recipe, you can make a delicious meal that your guests will rave about.
The Grilled Steak Recipe – This easy, 20-minute steak recipe is performed over the top of your gas flame. Just like frying, cooking this steak recipe in a skillet also gives you the opportunity to add your favorite seasonings to give your dish a delicious flavor. This dish is loved by many because it’s one that uses inexpensive cuts of meat and yet has a delicious, well balanced, and mouth-watering taste that stays fresh through the duration of the cooking process. You can even season this dish with garlic and onions to give it an extra zest. This delicious dish can be prepared with different vegetables or just serve it on its own with some potatoes, steamed broccoli, and tomato sauce.
Pan-Seared Steak – The pan-seared steak is very similar to the steak recipe we’ve mentioned earlier, but this time, we’re using a cast iron pan instead of a skillet. You’ll want to use a dry rub made from flour, salt, and pepper in order to create a natural seasoning for your steak. Once you have your seasoning ready, you simply place your steak onto the pan, being sure to cover it with the rub so that the steam doesn’t burn and turn black. Place the steak at medium high heat, and turn the burner to medium high heat until the steak cooks thoroughly, approximately ten minutes. When it’s done, you simply remove your steak from its pan, cover it loosely with aluminum foil, and let it rest while it finishes cooking.
Medium Low Cooking – A very popular technique among steak lovers is making a steak under the medium low temperature. There are a couple of advantages to doing this, and there are also a couple of disadvantages, but in my opinion, it’s the best way to cook steak, hands down. First of all, it cooks the steak evenly with the most even results. It also results in a steak that is very juicy, with lots of juice inside.
Charcoal Frying – Another technique is frying steak on a charcoal grill. This method, which I love, is something that people often do in their backyard, so I’m sure that there are lots of recipes floating around on the internet for this method as well. This works great, but you need to be sure that the grill you’re going to use is large enough to cook the steak completely through without the bottom burning. If you don’t have a very large charcoal grill, you could use the coals inside your oven or gas oven to cook your steak on, which is the best solution if you’re trying to duplicate a restaurant steak recipe.
As you can see, there are a ton of ways to make a good steak, and if you pay attention to details and tweak just a couple things you’ll end up with a high quality meal that tastes great and has a lot of flavor. What you put into your steak recipes really makes a difference, so pay close attention and think about what you’re putting into your meal. In fact, the steak recipes in this article are my favorites and they come from home chef David Grisaffi’s site, where he demonstrates the methods he uses to make the best beef strips, sirloin tips, chicken cutlets, and potatoes on a skillet.
