How to Cook a Great Steak

Posted on 09 February 2019

Grilling – Outdoor

  • Steaks should always be at room temperature before they are cooked. Remove your steaks from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before cooking. Pat them dry with a paper towel.
  • Preheat grill to maximum temperature.
  • Rub both sides of the steaks with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • Place the steaks 3 to 5 inches from the flame to sear the outside and seal in the juices.
  • Sear the steaks for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
  • After the steaks have been seared on both sides, remove from heat, and brush both sides with extra virgin olive oil. This will help form the crust that adds the touch of perfection.
  • Return the steaks to heat and cook on both sides to a desired doneness using the timing suggestions in our chart in this section.
  • VERY IMPORTANT- let rest 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

Pan Searing – Indoor

  • Bring the steaks to room temperature as described above and pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Place a dry cast-iron skillet in a pre-heated broiler on high heat about 6 inches from flame or heating element. Heat pan for about 20 minutes.
  • Brush the steaks with olive oil and rub with coarse kosher or sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Sear the steaks for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
  • After the steaks are seared, reduce the heat to moderately hot to hot and continue cooking the steaks to a desired doneness using the timing suggestions in our chart in this section.
  • VERY IMPORTANT- let rest 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

Pan Roasting – Indoor

  • Bring the steaks to room temperature as described above and pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  • On the stovetop, heat an ovenproof frying pan or skillet (cast-iron is great) on high heat until the pan smokes slightly or a drop of water evaporates on contact.
  • Brush the steaks with olive oil and rub with coarse kosher or sea salt and freshly ground pepper. When the pan is heated, lay the steaks carefully into the skillet to avoid splatters. Your vent or fan should be set on high because this method creates a fair amount of smoke as the steak is seared. Sear the steaks for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
  • After the steaks are seared, put the pan directly into the oven and roast the steaks to a desired doneness using the timing suggestions in our chart in this section.
  • VERY IMPORTANT- let rest 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
