TIPS ON HOW TO COOK STEAK TO PERFECTION.
#1 Room Temperature meat. Setting meat out for a bit to bring it to room temperature will allow it to be more tender.
TIP #2 Make sure to preheat the skillet; this is very important to get a good sear without overcooking your steak.
TIP #3 Season the meat before you cook it. My favorite is to add salt and pepper.
TIP #4 Let the steak rest for 5 minutes after you remove it from the hot skillet. This makes for a juicy steak.
TIP #5 Don’t EVER cut a steak to check for doneness! One of the best ways to check if your meat is done is to lightly press the steak down with a fork, the more it gives, or the flabbier it feels, the rarer it still is. When it’s very cooked, the meat will hardly yield when you press it.
