Steak

Steak can be a very easy thing to prepare if you follow these few tips:

  1. Cover your steak and let them come up to room temperature for about 20 minutes before you cook it. It’s a pretty hot one today so 20 minutes should be perfect. Allowing the meat to come to room temperature ensures that you will be able to cook the middle of the steak, which is hard to do if the steak is too cold.
  2. Rub the steak with olive oil, salt, pepper and any other seasonings you might like to try. We have steak rub in the pantry if you would like to try some of that!
  3. Make sure your pan or grill is hot.

Pan Frying Steak

  1. Add the steak to hot pan and flip every minute.
  2. Cook 7 minutes for a medium steak. You may add an additional few minutes for a well-done steak.
  3. After it is done add a little bit of butter on the steak and loosely cover steak with foil and LET IT REST for 5 minutes. The steak will continue to cook this way for an even cook.
  4. Enjoy with steak sauce or your favorite topping. I like horseradish!

Grilling Steak

  1. Make sure the grill is hot, set the temp to high.
  2. Add seasoned steak and cook for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown. You should see some char marks also.
  3. Turn the steak over and cook for another 5-7 minutes for medium or 8-10 for well.
  4. After it is done add a little bit of butter on the steak and loosely cover steak with foil and LET IT REST for 5 minutes. The steak will continue to cook this way for an even cook.
  5. Enjoy with steak sauce or your favorite topping. I like horseradish!

This recipe was created with a 1 1/2 inch steak in mind. Times can change depending on the thickness of your steak. Be aware of how thick it is and adjust accordingly.

Baked Potatoes

  1. Baked Potatoes are a super easy delicious side for steak.
  2. Wash the potatoes. Pierce them with a fork.
  3. Rub the potatoes with olive oil and generously salt them.
  4. Roast them on a foil lined baking sheet at 425 degrees for 50-60 minutes, flipping every 20 minutes. Serve with butter, sour cream (plain greek yogurt works well too) green onion and bacon bits.

You can cut down the baking time by zapping them in the microwave for 3-4 minutes. Only use this option if you are desperate. Microwaves change the chemical makeup of food in a dangerous way that hasn’t been tested nearly enough.
