There’s nothing quite like a hearty, flavourful steak to warm you up on a cold winter’s day. And with a little bit of planning and some simple ingredients, you can enjoy a delicious winter steak dinner at home any time you like.
One of the key things to consider when cooking a steak in the winter is the type of meat you’ll be using. For the best results, opt for a high-quality cut of beef with a good amount of marbling. This will ensure that your steak is tender and flavourful, even when cooked to a higher temperature. Some of the best cuts for winter steaks include ribeye, sirloin, and filet mignon.
Once you’ve chosen your meat, it’s time to get cooking. One of the easiest and most delicious ways to prepare a winter steak is to pan-sear it. Here’s a simple recipe that yields perfect results every time:
- 1 pound steak (such as ribeye, sirloin, or filet mignon)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.
- Season your steak with salt and pepper on both sides.
- Add the olive oil and butter to the skillet, and let the butter melt.
- Place the steak in the skillet, and sear it for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until it develops a nice brown crust.
- Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven, and roast the steak for about 5-7 minutes for medium-rare, or 8-10 minutes for medium.
- Remove the skillet from the oven, and let the steak rest for about 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
Serve your winter steak with your choice of sides, such as roasted potatoes, steamed vegetables, or a simple salad. And don’t forget to finish off the meal with a glass of red wine – it’s the perfect complement to a rich, hearty steak. Enjoy!
