Tips for great steaks

  1. Season the steak with salt and pepper well in advance. The seasoning will penetrate the meat and give it better flavor throughout.

  2. Before you sear or grill the meat dry the surface off with a paper towel. This will give you a better crust.

  3. To finish the cooking cook the steaks at a lower temperature to let it cook more evenly. When the steak is cooked to your liking, let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes. A rested steak will be juicier and more flavorful.
