The Perfect Steak

​Skip the grill!  Grab a well-seasoned cast iron skillet and a bottle of avocado oil for steaks that are the envy of any steak house!

  • Start with your favorite Eden Pure Beef steaks.  Salt well and thaw completely in the refrigerator, then bring to room temperature before searing.

  • Heat 1 - 2 T of avocado oil in your cast iron skillet.  Set your stove to "HIGH" and get your skillet good and hot - the avocado oil should be just beginning to smoke!

  • Blot your steak to dry the surface.  Moisture causes steaming which will interfere with that crisp, caramelized surface that separates the good steaks from the GREAT ones!

  • Sear your steak for 1 - 2  minutes on each side 

  • Use the HAND TEST to check for done-ness

  • Thinner steaks are likely done at this point.  Thicker steaks should be covered and placed in an oven heated to 350*F for 5 - 8 minutes to finish bringing the center to the desired temperature.

  • Always transfer your steak to a plate to rest in a warm place for 5 minutes before cutting into them so they can reabsorb the juices.

  • If you need something to do for 5 minutes to keep you from prematurely cutting your steak, render a thick pat of butter in your skillet , along with a couple of cloves of freshly crushed garlic and a sprig of your favorite herbs (I love rosemary and basil!)  Drizzle this over your steak just before serving

  • Enjoy!
