What you need:
Steak and Butter
Now, here’s the point I wanted to make: There is no sense in purchasing overpriced meat if you don’t know how to cook it properly!
So, this little post will teach you how to cook a steak to a perfect medium flawlessly. That’s how we like it and that’s how we eat it. You can adjust the cooking times to create your perfect steak too. I’ll show you how! Its a great technique!
It all starts off with some butter in a pan. Sweet sweet butter. Turn your pan up so its screaming hot. For me, thats medium high. If you turn our burner on high, I swear it’ll burn the place down. Also, preheat the oven to 350.
Next comes our lovely Sirloin. We had some awesome steaks in this one! Salt and pepper the one side of the meat, place it seasoning side down into the pan and then add the s&p to the other side.
It’ll look something like this. Sizzle away, boys! You want the one side to get dark and yummy looking. Kind of vague with the description…..I can do better: cook your meat 3-4 minutes on the first side without touching it or moving it around. Movement=bad.
Now, when you are ready, flip your steaks over, top them with butter and throw them into your hot oven for 5 minutes, keeping them in the same skillet! Did I mention you need to use an oven proof pan? Oops…
So, after 5 minutes, take them out of the oven, transfer them to a plate and cover them with foil. Let these babies rest! They’ve been through a lot, after all!
After 5 minutes, take the foil off and slice thinly and for everything that pure and holy, cut against the grain!!
