Tips on How to Fry Juicy Steak at Home

It is important to choose steaks so that it is not a shame to lose the roast. I recommend choosing either rib eye or strip-layer – this is a thick and thin edge. They are juicy, soft, and even if you cannot “catch the roast”, it will not spoil them at all, the meat will remain tasty.

  1. You need to wait until the pan is as hot as possible over high heat. But make sure that it does not start to “burn” and smoke. How do I check if the pan is ready? The easiest way is to drip it with water: if the water starts to “jump” over the entire surface, then the pan is ready.
  2. My life hack: do not salt or pepper raw meat, because at this stage it will not affect its taste and condition in any way. As soon as the pan is ready, layout the steak and begin to fry.
  3. Each part of the carcass is fried in a completely different way, so now we are talking exclusively about striploin. Considering our thickness is from 2.5 to 3 centimeters: rare – 35-40 degrees, medium-rare 45-50, medium – 50-55 degrees. Finally, the medium-well roast is over 60 degrees inside your steak. How long to fry on each side?
  4. There are no exact rules. I like turning the meat over every 1.5-2 minutes more, thereby manually distributing the heat evenly inside the steak. And if you like a fried crust, you can achieve it at the end by holding the steak on each side for a little longer.
  5. The rest of the steak is the same fairy tale as about the “marbling” of meat. Both the first and second is a good marketing ploy, which is now customary to talk about. Once the steak is done, I usually chop, breaking the fiber structure of the meat, and then add salt or whatever spices I like.
