How To Cook A Cheap Steak Vs. An Expensive Steak

Here is what you’ll need!

Servings: 2-4

1 pound flap meat
½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
4 large cloves garlic
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Gallon-sized plastic zipper bag
Cast-iron skillet

1. Place flap meat, soy sauce, and pepper in the gallon-sized plastic bag.
2. Place garlic cloves on a flat surface and crush with hand using palm. Just enough to crack the clove open a bit.
3. Add garlic to bag and seal, making sure to remove as much air from the bag as possible.
4. Massage the contents of the bag to ensure the soy sauce mixture is completely coating the meat.
5. Leave bag in the refrigerator to marinate for 1-12 hours.
6. Place cast-iron skillet in cool oven and preheat to 475°F/240°C.
7. Remove steak from marinade and thoroughly pat dry.
8. Once oven is preheated, transfer skillet to stovetop and place on place on high heat.
9. Add oil to skillet.
10. Once oil starts to shimmer, but before it starts to smoke, carefully place steak in pan.
11. Flip steak every 30 seconds to a minute, moving the steak to the hottest parts of the pan each time.
12. Once internal temperature reaches a few degrees below 135°F/57°C remove steak from pan and place on a cutting board to rest.
13. Let rest for 8-10 minutes.
14. Slice steak against the grain and serve!

Servings: 2-4

1 1.5- to 2-inch-thick rib eye steak
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Optional: Pepper

1. Liberally season steak on all sides with salt and (optional) pepper. Place steak in fridge for 1 to 24 hours. If leaving for more than an hour, cover with plastic wrap.
2. Preheat oven to 275°F/140°C.
3. Transfer steak to a wire rack on top of a baking sheet.
4. Bake for about 20-30 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches about 95°F for medium-rare.
5. Preheat cast-iron skillet on high heat for 10-15 minutes.
6. Add oil to skillet.
7. Once oil starts to shimmer but before it starts to smoke, carefully place steak in pan.
8. Cook for about 1-2 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature is a few degrees below 135°F/57°C and a dark crust has formed.
9. Rest the steak on a cutting board or wire rack for about couple minutes.
10. Slice steak and serve!

    i'd rather sous vide a steak rather than reverse sear. It comes out with a much more flavourful result and a much more consistent result. With a reverse sear you have a higher chance of losing some of the steaks flavour as it is sitting in an oven, with nothing to stop steak juices from flowing everywhere whereas with a sous vide, the steak will always be basking in its seasoning/marinade. Also, using a sous vide with marinated steaks is also excellent because the steaks both rest in the marinade overnight as well as being cooked in the same marinade which results in consistent flavour.

    Like how you describe everything .. Nice … Make me want to eat steak..

  • Joe Pasco on January 31, 2020

    Bongos and drums and clanking and chims! What is the purpose? Maybe to intentionally drown out the narration?!

    You don't man handle your meats once it's on the pan. Let it sit for the full time then only flip it once and base with the juices…

  • Bill Le on January 31, 2020

    Dang, that pan is more oily than MY NASTY PUBESCENT SKIN

    Also cast iron can knock you out by one hit..

  • Pure Pulchritude on January 31, 2020

    So you just not gonna wash the meat? Just straight out the pack to the seasoning? No….no….no ma'am! But these are great ideas nonetheless.

  • K.I.T.T The Build! on January 31, 2020

    All good except for the constant flipping! I discovered that the meat is more tender if you just trust your time.5 minutes each side for medium rare on a 1 inch or so cut!
