How To Cook Steak On A Stove Top
There are three ways of cooking a steak on the top of your stove. These are baking, grilling, and frying. Let’s get to know them all.
Cooking a good steak on the top of your stove goes something like this: Get the best steak for flat-style (flank steak or top sirloin) boneless, dry rub it very well all over, let it marinate, and cook it over medium heat with some oil for only a few minutes until it is almost done. Once it is almost done, take it out of the marinade and use some of the oil to start cooking the steak on a hot griddle or skillet with a little oil over medium heat until it is almost done. (The oil you use will determine the final result as some will absorb the juice while others will not).
Some people will suggest that cooking steak on a cast-iron skillet is the most difficult way, but I have found that this isn’t necessarily true. A cast-iron skillet can actually be a great way to cook steak if you know how to cook steak on a stovetop. This method has only recently caught on, so there are not too many books or videos on it yet, but it works! I like the fact that there is no real turning of the skillet like there is with most other frying pans.
The advantage of this is that there is no “hot area” where the oil spills over, so there is no mess to clean up.
Another trick that works well is to put the steak on a plate and then put the thermometer probe in one part of the steak and check for doneness for four minutes and then baste the steak. If the steak doesn’t look or feel pink yet, don’t add any more oil. Instead, baste the outside of the meat with olive oil, garlic, and a little salt. After four minutes, turn the steamer off and wipe the plate clean. Add the steak and let it sit for four minutes, then baste the inside again, just like you did the first time.
Steak on a cast iron skillet usually takes about three minutes to cook a two-pound steak, which is really about the average time. This is the total cooking time, including baking time. When I make steaks at home, I always measure the amount of liquid that I want to use before I start cooking. I prefer dry rubs for my steak rub, but feel free to add your own dry spices and herbs if you prefer. It’s always a good idea to mix your spices, even if they are the same ones that you are using for the meal.
The first time you cook steak on a skillet, I would recommend that you season it properly.
Just like with any kind of food, you’ll only be seasoning your food when it is raw. Start by adding a tablespoon of kosher salt to about half a cup of water. Set your fire to medium-low and cook your steak until it is done.
Now, if you have an idea of how to cook steak on a grill, here is another great way to do it. First, pre-heat your grill to medium-high. Then, cut your steaks into thin slices about an inch thick. Place the sliced steak onto the hot grill, along with some potatoes. Keep the lid on your grill for the first hour. This will give the potatoes a chance to pop and brown, giving you the perfect, rich flavor for your steak dinner.
Finally, to add a little more flavor to your steaks, throw a couple of pieces of pepper on top of your steaks after one hour. You should cook your steak until it is a dark brown color. Then, remove your skillet from the oven and allow it to rest for three to four minutes. When you do, use your spatula or fork to flip your steak and give it a light spray of olive oil on both sides for a delicious appetizer to go with your main dish.
