Many people believe that a juicy, well-cooked steak is just about the greatest meal ever. However, many people also question whether they have the expertise to cook it themselves. By choosing the right cut of meat and following a few simple guidelines, you can treat yourself to the perfect steak right at home. An inch-thick slice of tender and marbled ribeye is a good cut of meat to start with, but flat-iron, filet, rump and sirloin steaks are also excellent choices. Take your steak out of the fridge and let it warm up to room temperature.
Give it an hour for thin cuts and two hours for thicker cuts. Pat the steak dry with paper towels, and then give the meat a good rub with olive oil, black pepper and sea salt. Alternatively, salt and pepper the steak. Add butter, ghee or olive oil to the pan, or baste the meat with a brush or a hunk of butter while you’re cooking it. This helps to caramelize the meat on the outside.
