This beef steak recipe is of my hubby’s. I rely on his superpowers when it comes to grilling or barbecuing. My job is basically to devour the grilled meats that he puts on the plate.
Tough job, but someone’s got to do it. LOL!
Here’s the simple steak recipe that we’d like to share from our home to yours.
- ¼ cup Soy sauce (or enough to cover the surface of the steak)
- 1 tbsp Oyster sauce
- 1 tsp Freshly ground black peppers
- 2 tsp Garlic powder
- ½ tbsp Lemon
- ½ tsp Paprika
- Butter or oil for brushing if panfrying
- Place the porterhouse in a deep pan for marinating.
- Mix all the ingredients (except for the butter) together and pour it unto the meat.
- Marinate for at least an hour. If you keep it overnight in the fridge, the meat will be more tasty.
- When ready to cook, remove from the fridge to make sure the meat is in room temperature.
- Cook away!
- If grilling, place the steak unto the griller under low heat for 6 minutes per side for a medium well steak. For medium rare, grill for 4 minutes.
- If pan frying, brush the pan with oil. Then, put the steak on the pan on low heat for 5-6 minutes per side. Serve on plate with a side of chips or with rice when the meat is ready.
Tips and Tricks
Cooking Tips for the Perfect Beef Steak
Now, even though I won’t be diving into the basic recipe – because let’s face it, you’ve probably got your own killer method – I do want to share some tips that can take your beef steak game to the next level.
First off, always remember to take your steak out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature before cooking. This simple step is crucial for getting that even cook we all strive for. Another thing I swear by is seasoning generously. Don’t shy away from salt and pepper; they’re the gatekeepers of flavor town when it comes to steak.
And here’s a personal secret: I love adding a sprig of rosemary and a clove of garlic to the pan while the steak is cooking. It infuses the beef with an aromatic wonder that’s hard to beat!
FAQs About Beef Steak
Got questions? I bet you do. Here are a couple of common ones that pop up:
- How do I know when my beef steak is done? Well, the trusty meat thermometer is your friend here. For medium-rare, aim for 130-135°F. If you’re more of a visual person, look for that rich, golden crust. That usually means you’re on the right track.
- What’s the best pan to use? Best Cast Iron Skillet for Steak all the way! It retains heat like no other and gives you that unbeatable sear. Just thinking about it makes me want to start cooking!
How to Serve Your Beef Steak
Presentation matters, folks. When serving up your beef steak, think about what complements the star of the show. I’m a fan of simplicity: a little pile of arugula tossed with a vinaigrette on the side, some roasted potatoes, maybe a pat of herb butter melting on top of the steak. Perfection!
And don’t forget to let your steak rest before slicing into it. This is non-negotiable! Resting allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring each bite is as flavorful as the last.
So there you have it, my take on the divine experience of cooking and serving beef steak. Remember, whether you’re a seasoned chef or a weekend warrior in the kitchen, it’s all about enjoying the process and sharing good food with folks you care about. Now go forth and create your steak masterpiece!
