Hey , guys today , I'm gonna cook a steak in my instant pot with no pressure .
I've noticed when I'm doing other recipes that my instant pot does a pretty good job of searing the meat .
So I thought , why not just try cooking a steak in it , just frying it without using the pressure cooked setting .
So this steak is a , uh , rib steak .
Um , it's , uh , £1.3 .
This was 6 99 per pound , but it was marked $4 off .
So I got this for $5.09 which is a pretty good price for a rib steak .
Now , I salted this on both sides last night , just sprinkled a little salt on both sides and put it into the refrigerator overnight .
They call that dried running .
What that does is the salt kind of penetrates into the meat and it gives it a little more flavor and makes it a little bit juicier .
I don't always do that , but I try to , if I'm thinking ahead , I was thinking ahead last night .
So I did .
So all I'm gonna do here is cook this on the saute setting .
So I have turned it all the way up to high and we'll get that warming up and I'm , I'm gonna use avocado oil for this because it has a high heat , setting a 500 F smoke point .
So I'm just gonna add a little bit of avocado oil to the bottom of the pot there and let that preheat for a little bit .
And then we'll get the steak in there .
Oil is hot , it's splattering and popping all over the place .
Let's get our steak in there .
Kind of a tight squeeze .
That's a pretty good size to steak .
This my steaks down there in the bottom and I'm gonna put this glass lid on there .
It's been about 4.5 or five minutes here .
So let's take the lid off and see how we're doing right now .
I'm gonna go ahead and turn this over .
Nice to see her on it .
Kind of stuck here .
Come on now , there we go .
I let it cook for a few minutes on that side .
This way is nice to keep the grease from splattering all over the place .
I almost forgot .
I'm gonna Sprinkle a little Johnny seasoning pepper on there .
I didn't put this on the other side because I had some sugar in it .
So I thought it might burn .
Besides pepper has , uh , sugar red and green bell pepper , garlic and onion in it .
So we'll get a little bit of that on there .
And I'll start watching it and checking the temperature .
I'm gonna try to cook it to about 120 degrees internal .
This has been in the pot for about eight minutes .
So , let me see what the internal temperature is here .
1 36 .
That is done .
I'm gonna get that out of there .
I let this rest for a few minutes and I made a baked potato in my toaster oven .
Let's cut into this and see how it looks here .
Well , actually it looks pretty good .
It's , uh , it was a little more than rare .
I cooked it past 1 20 .
I cooked about 1 35 .
So it's more kind of medium here , I think .
But it looks pretty good .
Let's try a bite turned out pretty good .
I guess we better make it official and see what any of the taste test dog thinks .
Wanna try it in .
Well , she looked pretty happy about that .
A steak turned out pretty good .
I would cook a steak that way again .
So that particular steak , I did it five minutes on the first side and then about 3.5 on the second side .
But it'll vary , you know , depending on the size and thickness of your steak and just how you like it cooked .
But , um , yeah , I would definitely do it that way again .
Thanks for watching , talk to you guys next time .
