Baking steak in 10 steps

  1. Cooking the perfect steak starts with choosing a good piece of meat.

  1. So know what you are buying!

  1. Take it out of the fridge half an hour before you start cooking your steak. This way the meat can already come up to temperature. If your steak is too cold at the time of cooking, the meat can become very tough due to the scaring. Firing is crucial, because searing prevents the inside from drying out.

  1. Just before cooking, pat the steak dry with kitchen paper. Sprinkle with some salt, pepper or other spices if necessary. This can also be done afterwards!

  1. A frying pan is in principle a great option, but with a grill pan you will achieve the best results. In addition to that cozy checkered structure, the high temperature of the grill pan will sear your steak very quickly, so that all meat juices are optimally preserved. The result? A single juicy piece of meat! Always choose a pan that has enough space to slide your meat.

  1. Our advice for frying steak is to do it in coconut oil or butter. Both are suitable for use at high temperatures and contain healthy fats. Put some butter or oil in the grill pan. Using a brush and greasing the grill pan will prevent the butter or oil from sticking between the ridges. Make sure your meat has something to fry and your pan is hot!

  1. The real work can now begin: your steak can go into the pan! Do this with love and use your hands or pliers. By piercing the meat with a fork, moisture will run out. Sin! Fry the meat on high heat for 1 minute per side (for a total of 2 minutes) until light brown.

  1. Now turn the heat a little lower. Keep your meat moving by turning it over regularly and shaking your pan. For weird, medium or well-done, use the following guidelines:

  1. Note: The cooking time also depends on the thickness of your steak. Is your meat thinner than 2 cm? Then bake a little shorter. Is it thicker than 2 cm? Then bake a little longer. Always turn your steak for the recommended time!

  1. Are you a perfectionist and do you want to know down to the last decimal place whether your steak is ready? Then use a core temperature probe. You insert the meter in the thickest part to determine the exact condition of your piece of meat. Pin and read:

  1. After baking, remove the steak from the pan and cover it with aluminum foil. Let it rest for at least 2 minutes. This relaxes the muscle fibers and allows the meat juices to enter you steak optimally withdrawn. The result? A super tender steak!

  1. Steak needs very little extra. A little salt and pepper is often enough. You can add it to taste just before serving.

What do we eat with it?

  1. Beef is a good source of protein, but is relatively hard to digest. By accompanying your meat with a large plate of vegetables, you ensure that your meal remains relatively light and at the same time you get enough vitamins and minerals.
