Cook the Perfect Steak

Published September 20th 2011
Yes, I'm a guy and most are known to cook steak on the backyard BBQ. However next time you feel like a good steak, ditch the tongs and apron and head to the kitchen.

Cheap steak can taste expensive

Being a fussy steak eater, and not wanting blood running over my plate when I make the first cut, I have tried this on many a occasion. My partner and I agree this method turns cheap steak into premium steak and cooks the meat perfectly right though to the centre.

Good steak will cost you an arm and a leg, so buy just a cheap steak, any steak will do the trick. Cut off all the excess fat, put a spoon of butter in the frypan and throw in the steak.

Now to make it so tender that will amaze you as you slice it.

Cover the steak in water and add some cracked pepper and diced onion. Cook on a low boil for 20 mins with the lid on and then drain the water. Add a touch more butter and smear smokey BBQ sauce on both sides for browning, then allow to cook for a further couple of minutes.

In minutes your meal will be ready-you won't even need a steak knife to cut it and it will be cooked evenly throughout.

add flavour

Give this a try and with the money you saved by turning cheap steak into a premium piece, treat yourself to a dinner out at a restaurant and compare the steak to what you have cooked.

You might just surprise yourself.
