Steak

What's the Best Food?

In my opinion, the best food is steak. It can be added to anything and tastes great. You can make tacos, quesadillas and so much more with steak. Its even great with mashed potatoes and green beans. I personally like the steak medium-rare to rare. For me, that is the best way to consume my steak. Steak can range in cost. The better cuts, in certain areas, cost more, where as many lower quality meats cost less. No matter what quality your steak is, with the right seasonings and paying attention to how its cooked, your steak can come out juicy, tender, and flavored. Garlic and butter can be added to your steak to make it juicy on the outside.

When making a steak, be sure to use a grill or a stove top, with a pan that can make the grill marks. You can use those grill marks, to help you cut your steak into the perfect strips. To make a medium rare steak, you cook for four to five minutes on one side, then flip it over and continue to grill three to five minutes on the other side—or until the internal temperature reaches 135 degrees Fahrenheit or 55 degrees Celsius.

The top mistake when grilling a steak is using the wrong kind of salt. Sea salt is the best for when cooking a steak. Always make sure that your grill is nice and hot when you cook your steaks. Let your grill run for 20 to 30 minutes before you place your steak on it. Always make sure that your steak is dry before you put it on the grill. If it's wet, it won't cook right and come out a dull grey-ish color.

Above all else, even if you're a professional at grilling a steak, it never hurts to always have a thermometer handy to make sure that your steak is the proper temperature before serving yourself or guests. Another thing to remember is to only flip your steak once. Doing it more than once can cause uneven cooking.

Let your steak rest, to help the collagen in the meat to help thicken the juice. It makes the steak so much more juicy and tender. I suggest letting it sit for the same time you cook your steak and that is how you grill a steak to perfection!
