Steak is considered the ultimate dinner choice by many people. After all, it is hard to beat a perfectly prepared steak. These tips for serving steak will help you prepare a dinner that will have everyone coming back for more.
There are many different cuts of steak from which you can choose. The different cuts have unique characteristics and vary in price. A fillet steak, for example, is more expensive than other cuts that are less tender but may have more flavor. In any case, you want to look for a steak that is moist and that features light marbling.
How you cook the steak is essential. Steak may be grilled or fried, depending on your preference. Frying steak usually requires using oil, whether you lightly coat the pan or the steak. After seasoning to taste, steaks should be cooked evenly on both sides. Cooking times vary depending on the thickness of the steak. A thick fillet will usually need to be cooked between 2.5 and 4.5 minutes per side. A thinner steak, like sirloin, will require between 1.5 and 4 minutes per side.
A steak dinner can be varied considerably by choosing different sides. A garden salad served with steak provides a nice, light meal. Serving steak with steamed vegetables offers a nicely balanced meal. A pasta side like macaroni and cheese could be a bit heavy.
Of course, many people prefer a side of potatoes, such as a baked potato, mashed potatoes or even french fries.
