With the New Year a week in, and many of us still holding strong. It got me thinking about food. And with the Anker Community so strong, and in so many great states and countries. I think it would be fun to share our favorite recipes and things to cook!
Feel free to share below any recipes, tips, tricks or local fare!
I’ll start by pan searing and finishing off a steak in the oven!
- First you need to pick a steak of choice, I prefer boneless filet mignon, NY Strip or Ribeye. Season with salt, that’s it - other spices can burn before seasoning the meat. Salt for at least 30 mins- 1 hr, or if you can plan ahead - overnight!
- Next, get a cast iron skillet. No, nothing else works. Get this pan smoking hot, also good idea to pre-heat your oven while the cast iron is getting hot.
- Next, Throw a pat of butter in the pan and just before the butter melts away throw on your steaks. Pan sear for about 2-3 minutes before turning. Don’t mess with it, let it sear. Then flip again in 2 minutes.
- Finally, after you’ve seared both sides, Season with your favorite steak seasoning or just salt and pepper. Then, finish it off in the hot oven (Preferably 400+ degrees) until you’ve reached your preferred internal temps. Remember, you cannot put the toothpaste back in the tube, so start with 2 minutes and work your way up if you need.
Voila! You have a perfectly seared, restaurant quality steak for pennies on the dollar! Pair with a nice, dry red wine or glass of bourbon and you’ll have your company begging for more! Cheers!
