How to Make the Perfect Steak

Friday, February 20, 2015

Wow what a crazy week we are having in Atlanta.  School was cancelled Monday and Tuesday just in case the weather turned bad.  The only thing it did was rain.  It was not cold enough for it to turn into and make the roads dangerous.  It did get really icy in the North Georgia cities so I am glad they cancelled school just in case.  We all remember last year, when they did not cancel school and children were stuck at school and sleeping on buses.  It is better to be safe than sorry.  Yesterday was freezing the high was 27 degrees and the low was 13 degrees.  Addison said he wished they would have cancelled school yesterday than Monday and Tuesday.  I agree.  It was too cold to do anything.  I don't want to leave the house.  LOL!

Since it has been cold I have been cooking up a storm.  I love to cook when it is cold.  Comfort food is the best.  I made steak for the family Wednesday and I took some pictures and a video to show everyone How to Make the Perfect Steak. I hope you enjoy it.

How to Make the Perfect Steak

1.  Take your steak out of the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature.

2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

3.  Salt and Pepper your steak.

4.  Heat up about 1 tablespoon of oil and 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter in a cast iron pan on HIGH.



5. Wait until the oil and butter are hot and add steak.


While steak is searing carefully spoon brown butter over the steak.




The steak should sear for about 3-4 minutes.  Flip the steak when the steak has released from the pan. Never pull off a steak from a pan if it has not released on its own.

6.  Spoon the brown butter over the steak while the other side sears.  Sear again for about 3-4 minutes.



7. Remove from heat and place in the oven.  Check the temperature every 5 minutes.  Take steak out when it is 5 degrees below your ideal temperature.  120 degrees for rare.  130 degrees for medium rare.  140 degrees for medium. 150 degrees for medium well.  160 degrees for well.

8. Take the steak out of the oven and out of the pan and let it rest.  Let it rest for about 10 minutes.

9.  Pat yourself on the back and eat you delicious steak.
