Dallas is officially cooling down for the winter season and grilling outdoors doesn’t seem like a fun idea. Even though rain and cooler weather may be prevalent, these conditions aren’t strong enough to quell a craving for a juicy, hot, steak.
If the cold has your stomach eager for a warm cut of beef, follow these three tips from a West End steakhouse that knows its way around local cravings.
- Reverse Sear Your Steak
- Stove-Top Cook With Extra Butter
- Skip Cooking, Enjoy A Steakhouse
Reverse Sear Your Steak
This method is great if you are cooking with a muscular piece of meat like top sirloin. Cooking with a cut that has so many fibers means that you should put a little extra TLC into preparation if you aren’t planning on using a grill.
The reverse sear technique is perfect for slow cooking a steak. It creates an evenly cooked steak with a crusted sear that every steak lover enjoys crunching into.
In order to perfect the reverse-sear, follow these steps for a tasty treat:
- Cook the steak at around 250 degrees until your meat thermometer reads 115 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Remove the steak from your oven and place it in an oiled cast-iron skillet
- Sear your steak to taste
Stove-Top Cook Your Cut with Extra Butter
Although many steak lovers hold up their nose to a stove-top steak, this cooking method that involves basting your steak in butter could change more than a few minds. Butter-basting your steak, especially a rib eye cut, ensures that your steak cooks into a rich flavor that is found throughout its multiple textures.
For this cooking method, we recommend purchasing your steak from a local Dallas ranch where the meat has been able to grow and age naturally. Once your steak has been purchased the general prep is simple. Gather up:
- Cast-iron skillet
- Olive oil
Prep and salt your steak for a half hour and cook the steak in your skillet, turning it frequently for an even sear. Cook until your thermometer reads at around 130 degrees Fahrenheit.
