Great steak at home
« on: January 04, 2019, 10:04:02 PM »
Remember all our talk about home cooking?
I found the solution, you need 4 things.
A cast iron pan with ridges.
A digital cooking thermometer.
An exhaust fan.
A good steak.

Get the pan super hot, add steak, flip in 5 min., use thermometer to 135 +/-,  remove, cover with towel, let stand for 5 min. to finish cooking.

There is a lot of smoke so you need an exhaust fan.

Forget about the broiler.

For aesthetics, the ridges can create a criss cross pattern by flipping at 45 degree angles.

Anything is better than thinking about the St. Johns game.

Season with Montreal style and sear on both sides then cook to medium rare

Ramen.
Unless Sultan says differently that is, then we’d obviously have to go with that....

Excellent advice all around.

Next, upsize your gas pipes and get a commercial range.  Your cast iron pan won’t get hot enough on any residential-grade burner available.

And if you’re not cooking your steak blue, you might as well put it in the microwave. 
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

Only thing I would add, is take your steak out of the fridge 20-30 min before cooking, and season right before cooking.

And if you need to cook with a bit of oil, use the highest smoke point you that is the most neutral (canola and light evoo are good choices)

Good idea about the Montreal, not a bad stock either.
Today I received another useful tip.  (It is all in the trade secrets)
Only flip the steak once, do the crosscut first for presentation, then one turn to finish cooking.
I agree that a commercial stove with lots of gas and blue flame is the ultimate, we have had this discussion, but for home cooking the cast iron method is the best I have found. 
For many years I have tried to get it right and failed, even the Weber has not worked.
Short of a commercial stove, go stove top with cast iron.

I have used this for many years.  Put on both sides and sear.

I have to disagree with this.

One can have a solid steak at home but let's be honest: Nothing compares with a well-marbled piece of meat aged for 60 days in a cool dry whiskey barrel then seared at 800 degrees for a matter of minutes. And the only seasoning should be freshly ground pepper, kosher salt, and butter. That's it.

I think the one factor guys miss when doing steak at home is the cut: don't skimp - buy prime. And if you can find it, get Matsuzaka beef. Nothing in the world compares.

I use an egg where I can the temps get above 1,100' F. Matsuzaka beef with salt, pepper, and butter cooked above 1,100' F is an easy and best way to do meat at home.

Had ribeyes tonight from Costco.

Bought some 45 days ago.  They were lousy.

Bought some today....Choice grade.

Got the grill to 600.

Rare, baby. Meat was incredibly tender, succulent, and cool.  Fat was still semi-solid.   

Meat heaven tonight. Arrrrrrrh!

Nothing better than a reverse sear finished on cast iron.

Jacobsen co pepper infused salt is all you need.
