Steak

I helped a friend and she gave me some steak in return. I’m not a big meat eater so I was worried I would ruin it. Well, watching YouTube cooking videos seems to have paid off. The steak ended up being so delicious that I didn’t even need to add any seasoning at the end of the cooking process. Here’s how I did it:

I thawed the frozen steak in the fridge for two days. Then I put the steak in a glass container and poured soy sauce on top and enough to also coat the bottom of the pain. Then I generously applied cumin, paprika, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder and Tajin seasoning on both sides to taste. I covered the glass container with foil and put it in the fridge for about five hours.

Then I set the oven to 200F degrees. I then laid a wire rack on the top of a sheet pan. Then I put some olive oil on a paper towel and rubbed the olive oil onto the top of the wire rack. Then I put the steaks on the wire rack and put the pan in the oven.

I let the steaks cook 20 minutes before I flipped them. Then I let them cook another 20 minutes.

After I took the steaks out of the oven, I melted some real butter in a pan on the stovetop. I set the heat from medium-high to high. And I seared the steaks, only one or two at a time in the pan. I flipped the steaks about every minute or two until I started to see a dark crust forming.

Then I took the steaks off and put them on a plate to sit. After I finished searing the steaks, I put a pat of butter in the same pan and swirled it around, off the heat, until it melted. Then I tilted the pan and spooned the melted butter, minus the solids, onto the steaks on the plate.

I let the steaks sit for ten minutes on the plate before I cut into them. So delicious! No need for any seasonings or sauce. Not even salt or pepper. Success!
