5 Easy Steak House Secrets Eat Great Steak At Home

Nothing beats a fantastic steak. Celebrity chef steak houses are the hottest new restaurant trend; but you don’t need to spend a fortune at a steakhouse. Follow these 5 simple tips, and make fantastic steak at home every time.

1. Leave your steak in the fridge for a couple of days before you cook it. Steak houses brag about dry aging their beef, why can’t you do the same? Unwrap the plastic from the meat and leave it exposed to the air for a couple of days. Naturally occurring enzymes will tenderize the meat and impart a fantastic beefy flavor.

2. Want a medium rare steak. Cook it from frozen. Now you don’t want to plunk a solid ice cube of steak on the grill, but if you leave your steak partially frozen, you’ll end up with a deep brown caramelized crust and a juicy medium rare inside. Steak houses have grills that get a lot hotter than yours does. So keeping the meat a small frozen gives the steak time to develop that deep flavorful brown, before overcooking the inside.

3. Salt your steak. Use a small more salt than you reckon you need. It won’t taste too salty, it will taste wonderful. Salting prior to cooking extracts some of the amino acids in the meat and these, when heated, will brown up and help you get that fantastic steak house crust.

4. Dry the surface of the meat before cooking. Again, you want to get that deep brown crust, and the drier the meat surface the better the crust.

5. A dry steak is disappointing, so let the meat rest for a few minutes before serving. You don’t want to cut into your gorgeous steak and have all the juices run out. The juices, during cooking, rush out toward the hotter exterior. Letting the meat rest for 5-10 minutes before cutting into it lets the juices get reabsorbed throughout the steak.

That’s all there is to it. Follow these 5 simple steps before your next steak dinner and taste the difference.
