Earlier this week I was attempting to figure out what to eat for dinner and so I’m texting my mom trying to get an idea from her. She tells me to have steak and little red potatoes-which I LOVE-but I have no idea how to make a steak not on the grill (which of course I don’t have since I live in a shoebox apartment). So I did some googling and found this AMAZING website that gave me a fairly simplistic recipe for cooking a steak. DamnDelicious.net is a great source of recipes, because they’re easy to do for an amateur cooker, and well, damn delicious!
And it turned out perfectly. (Well other than the fact that my fire alarm went off but it goes off for everything)
The recipe to follow is here.
Adding some salt and pepper to the dried steak! I didn’t drizzle with olive oil (didn’t read the directions carefully enough-oops)
After that first minute of searing on side #1
My steak was thicker than what the recipe called for, so I ended up pan searing all 6 sides like it was a cube.
Post-oven cooking and before the flip.
Since my steak was thicker-and I like it more classic medium and not medium rare-I cooked for about 4-5 minutes on each of the (big) sides in the oven. It came out PERFECT
I didn’t make the garlic butter from her recipe but I’m sure it would turn out just as “damn delicious” as this steak!
Overall, I spent $13.99 on this NY Strip Steak from Whole Food. I got it cut in half and had steak for dinner on Tuesday and Thursday-both times using this recipe, and both times it turning out great! I also had leftovers both times that I ate for lunch the next day, so it was a pretty successful cooking experience!
