How to cook a juicy steak and not just a ribeye
Updated: Nov 21, 2020
Just cook it. It's actually really easy. And really, if you do it wrong, either you put it back on the grill. Or eat it slightly overcooked.
And enjoy the fact you just cooked dinner for yourself. And that's fucking beautiful. Don't cook to be perfect. Cook to to learn.
🥩🥩🥩 What you'll need 🥩🥩🥩
6-8 ounces per person of:
🥩 ribeye (fattier, tastier),
🥩 New York strip (leaner, less tasty)
🥩 flank steak (DO NOT OVERCOOK, but like, you know, you're human so do your best),
🥩 bottom sirloin (cheaper, can be a smidge tougher, SALT, SALT, SALT)
SALT YOUR MEAT AS SOON AS YOU GET HOME (and then put it back in the fridge just like@ciaosamintaught us to)
Heat your grill/cast iron as HOT AS IT CAN GO. Let it heat up for at least 10 minutes.
Salt your meat if needed. Add pepper if you want. I'm a purist so I don't add much else, but you do you, and add whatever steak seasoning you have on hand.
Place seasoned meat on grill. If using cast iron, add 2-3 tablespoons of grapeseed oil or high heat oil (enough to coat the bottom of the pan). Then add the steak.
For every 1 inch of thickness, cook for 2 minutes per side.
2 inch thick steak= 2 inches x 2 minutes = 4 minutes per side.
Mmmm-kay? You can do it. Steak is easy. You got this.
Serve it with fries. Serve it with salad. Maybe a potato. Maybe some asparagus.
Don't serve it with A-1. But also, serve it with A-1.
Send me your steak pics so I can spend the weekend drooling over beef photos. Send me questions. And if you fuck up the steak, DM me and hire me to teach you how to do it right.
