Cooking Steaks Just the way you want them can be tricky. After years of trying to learn to cook steaks o the grill or in a frying pan to the exact right doneness. (I like mine medium to medium rare) My husband discovered a trick that works every time.  It’s called a Reverse sear. It allows the inside to be cooked to a nice even medium rare, while still getting that nice crispy layer on the outside of the meat. Don’t tell him that /i shared his secret, But here’s how he does it.

  1. Rub the meat with a generous amount of salt and garlic. Wrap the meat in plastic wrap and put in the frig for 24 hours.
  2. After 24 hours of seasoning the meat you are ready to cook it. Preheat the oven to 225 degree Fahrenheit. Place the Meat on a baking sheet in the oven until the internal temperature of the steak reaches 115 degrees. The amount of time will depend on how think the meat is. We did a nice thick 2 inch steak and it took about 45 minutes to reach 115 degree internal temperature. Remove the steak from the oven and let it rest while you heat up the pan.
  3. Now for the Sear. Heat a cast iron skillet on the stove top until scalding.Do not use any oil or butter in the pan. Use a cast iron grill weight to weigh down the meat in the pan. You don’t want to squish out the juices, just weight it to the pan. About 3-4 minutes per side until a nice dark sear appears on the meat.

 

Slice your perfectly cooked steak and serve. Your guests will be amazed!
