Introduction: The Perfect Steak
The Wife is going out of town and now it is time to treat yourself to the "Perfect Steak" and it is as simple as changing the channel on TV.
Step 1: Ingredients
So it is time to head to the grocery store and get those what we need for this Perfect Steak
Now that you have done your shopping you can place them on a table and have them ready for you
1. Steak- I recommend a Ribeye or Sirloin for this recipe
2. 2 TSP of Course Black Pepper
3. 1 TBSP of Virgin Olive Oil
4. 1/2 cup of Steak Rub- I use Krogers Perfect Steak Rub
5. 1/4 cup of Coffee Grinds
6. Cast Iron Skillet
Step 2: Mix the Ingredients
In a bowl put in
1. Steak Rub
3. Course Pepper
Mix the ingredients until their is a smooth texture and consistent color to the mix
Step 3: Prep the Pan
Drizzle the Virgin Olive Oil into a cast iron skillet
Then turn the oven to 500 degrees and place the pan into the oven. Let the oven pre-heat to 500 degrees and then wait an additional 10 minutes before cooking. This will ensure the pan is at maximum temperature.
Turn the Stove Top to High and leave it on while the oven and pan prepare
Step 4: Prepare the Steak
With a fork lightly and repeatedly poke the steak until both sides have been tenderized on both sides.
Place the steak in the rub, pressing down and then flip and do the opposite side
Take your hands and press the rub until the entire surface is covered
Now let the rub sit for 15 minutes to absorb into the meat
Step 5: Sear the Steak
Take the pan from the oven- be careful this pan will be extremely HOT, and immediately place it on the stove that has been on high
Sear the steak on the first side for 90 seconds and then flip it and sear on the opposite side for another 90 seconds
Step 6: Place Steak in Oven
Once the steak is seared on both sides, immediately take the pan from the stove top and move it to the oven and set the timer for 2 minutes
Step 7: Check for Perfection
At the end of 2 minutes pull the steak out of the oven and check how cooked the steak is at this point, it should be medium rare, if you desire it to be cooked more, place back in oven for another 30 seconds and check it again.
