Cooking steak

1

Never cooked steak in my life (I know, I know), but bought myself a nice chunk of fillet for dinner tonight (gotta treat yourself).

Tips on cooking it?

For the record, I tend to not put any salt or sauce on my steak cus I just love the pure taste of meat.

I'm salivating like fuck now.

P.S. Fuck yer fasting thread!

There are various ways to season it before cooking, but I've prefer sealing it on a hot pan, wrapping in tin foil and cooking in the oven.

Must actually go buy some beef, been eating chicken and lamb for weeks now

aye - minute each side on the hottest possible heat, then fire in the oven for 4 mins.

I'm no expert but I have done a few that i like. Usually just put pepper on and work it in with my fingers. Put the pan on and get it stupidly hot before putting in the meat. Wee nob (yeow) of butter, usually smells a bit like its being burnt as the pan is so hot. Put the meat in and do a few mins each side, depends on how you like your steak. also make sure the pan is really really hot.

P.S use a ver hot pan

and yes, not salting steak is really stupid.

Main thing seems to be getting the pan hot as fuck before setting it in. Will give her a craic when I get home.

About 4 people in work are now going home via the butchers tonight.

It's Wayne's Steak Tuesday! YEO!

Make sure the steak is at room temperature and after you cook it to your liking let it sit for 5 minutes before serving/eating

The pan-->oven method suits man sized steaks by the way, 20oz+

Salt the life out of it for about 20 mins beforeyou cook it, drying out the surface moisture with a bit of kitchen roll every now and again. That takes all the water out so that when you whack it on the pan it fries rather than boils it

Heat the pan for about 10 minutes before sticking the steak on it.

also, best steak I've ever tasted. www.goodmanrestaurants...

150 day corn fed Nebraskan beef, dry aged for a month plus on site, then cooked in two different charcoal ovens. Sweet baby jesus it was good.

Best steak I've had was the fillet in The Tannery Moira.

Also had a burger made from kobe beef in Boston and it was fucking devine. I hate the fact that we don't get asked how we want our burgers done here. Medium cooked kobe beef burger is just amazing!

Is it not a bit risky undercooking burgers?

my da likes his steak cooked just enough to put as a new sole on a leather boot. If my mum is doin steak she'll put them on a low heat from about 4/4:30 to be ready for 5:30/5:45

Anywhere I've seen Kobe here it's been Angus raised in Scotland in the Kobe style but still charging prices as if it were imported from Japan. Fuck that.

wrap it in tin foil after cooking it and let it rest for a couple of mins as well as season and frying it.

Thread is making me hungry

JLtoday @ 1:57 p.m. Is it not a bit risky undercooking burgers?

Not at all only need to cook the outside of a steak to kill the bacteria

0 |

leave it out for a few hours, until its blue/purple, get the pan really hot and flash the steak on all sides.

If you like steak well done, you don't like steak ;-)

There's your coma as well ya filthy animal.

I like mine done simple, have it room temperature, rub some Atlantic sea salt on both sides with a little bit of oil, whack it on a hot griddle, coupe of minutes each side then off the heat and set on a warmed plate to rest, once it's ready to serve pour the juices from the plate over your steak and presto prefect steak

surely this draws all the juices out, and dries it out, instead of being juicy.

the whole point of getting the pan really hot it so that the juices get sealed inside. I dont salt it until just before i stick it in the pan. fire some butter in towards the end to baste her

Best steak I ever had was at the hippopotamus restaurant at charles de gaulle Airport. Filet De Beof Chateaubriand from the French equivalent of Frankie and Bennies, was amazing.

Some fancy Argie place in Slovakia. I will never taste steak like that again. Unreal.

0 |

i love the way some restaurants write 'corn fed' as though it might help entice you.

I've eaten there Murray, it is indeed a cracker, although I was struggling with all the food, serious feed. Was on a stag do too and non one was much use for drinking beers for the next hour!

and full of Capers and a couple of cornishons...wee bit of salt and pepper (black) chop the thing up like fuck and shape into patty. Make dimple in centre and gently slide on a raw egg yolk. Get some nice melba toast or crusty bread and yo got perfect steak tartare....mmmmmmm

0 |

does rubbing it in salt not draw the moisture out of the steak before cooking it?

0 |

Yes!

0 |

The moisture don't matter if ye are eating it uncooked!

0 |

steak tartare just doesn't do it for me.

Raw fish tartares on the other hand are amazing

What I do is:

1) Make sure your steak is at room temperature
2) Get your pan very hot - heat it for at least 10 mins.
3) Pepper and oil steak
4) Throw steak on pan, don't touch for 2 mins.
5) Flip it and cook on the other side for 2-5 mins.
6) Take out, stick a knob of butter on top of the steak and put it on a warm plate, cover it with foil
7) Let it rest for at least 10 mins.
8) Salt it
9) Eat the pure tits off it

0 |

I'm all for the 10min rest period. But I also don't much like eating the steak as it's getting cold. Where do you let it rest?

0 |

it wont go cold on a warm plate covered in foil. letting the meat rest is the secret

0 |

Surely that's what the covering it with tin foil part is for?

0 |

Aye I think that's my problem. Haven't had steak in ages. Something to do this week.

i noted your absence from monday night football last night, desus!

lol @ Eat the pure tits off it

Aye Con been doing pre season training with a team and one of the sessions is on a Monday night so have been missing the 7 aside games.

0 |

Basically what Star said and you won't go wrong!

Steak for me has to be rare! Each to their own and all that but the juicier the better IMO!

I get a bowl and put olive oil in it, them some ground peeper, little salt and a little crushed garlic. Mix all together and put in the steak, make sure its covered and leave for 30 mins. Heat a hot frying pan, don't add oil and chuck in the steak. Cook minute or two each side depending on thickness. I like my pan very hot so it almost chars the outside and seals in the flavour quickly.

Leave to rest for 10 mins and slice over an Asian salad
