Steak often gets a bad reputation for being difficult to cook, but with my recipe, you will become a professional in no time. There are many different cuts of steak from the popular rib-eye steak to the classic rib-eye, but my favourite cut has got to be the sirloin steak.
In general, there are a few tips that you should follow regardless of the cut of steak that you use. The one that may seem obvious, but a lot of people don’t do is make sure that your steak is at room temperature.
This makes an extreme difference as it ensures that the steak is cooked evenly throughout, and you don’t end up with a centre that is rarer than the outside.
Before you season the steak ensure that you dry the steak as well as you can. When it is time to season, season GENEROUSLY.
Steak is one of those dishes that even if you season with simple salt and pepper, it will still end up tasting delicious. However, it is important that you season it well enough to ensure that the whole steak will be flavoured.
Most people know this next time, but it is another crucial step in steak cooking. That is to ensure that your skillet is PIPING HOT.
This will ensure that you get a beautiful sear and crust on your pan-fried steak. It will reduce the overall cooking time and give you a dish that is restaurant-worthy.
Basting is another technique that should be used when making steaks. Allow the butter to melt completely and as the steak cooks keep basting the steak.
This will allow the steak to absorb the flavour and become juicy and moist. You can add additional fresh herbs to the recipe, such as thyme, to add even more flavourful.
The last time tip I have is to REST your steak! All meat should be left to rest before being eaten and steak is no exception. Steak should be left to rest for at least 5 minutes.
This will allow the steak to absorb its own juices and the fibres to relax giving you an even juicer and moister steak. Use these tips and techniques for the perfect steak and you will never need to go to a steakhouse again!
Cooking the perfect sirloin steak takes practice but with this recipe, you will be able to master the art and science of cooking steak within minutes. Steak is the perfect dish to entertain your guests or even for those simple dinners at home.
