Here's a really simple steak recipe that you're going to love .
I'm doing it indoors on an electric grill .
I love using these electric grills .
It's cold outside .
I don't want to stand out there in that .
And this is so much less aggressive than just a flat griddle pan .
It's one of the best ways you can cook a steak , in my opinion .
So to get started , I've got two New York strips .
Nice marbling in these .
So every good steak needs a good seasoning for me .
I like to use beef base .
One of the problems with steaks you get in the grocery stores these days , they don't have a whole lot of flavor .
So we have to add some flavor and this will give it a really intense beef flavor .
So I'm gonna do about a teaspoon of beef base , put that in and then I'm gonna add about a tablespoon or so of grape seed oil , use whatever oil you want .
This is just a high smoke point oil .
Just start mixing it up , break up all the chunks and then just start rubbing it on your steak like this .
Get a nice coating of it .
On there , get the sides , then add just a little bit of fresh cracked pepper .
You don't need to add any salt because it's in that beef base and then you're gonna put them on your very , very hot grill .
Most people , this is where they make a mistake indoors .
They don't have the confidence to get the pan up as hot as they can .
This is at 4 50 right now , which is right where I want it and we're gonna lay it pa side down on an angle and listen for that sizzle .
Same thing with the second steak .
Now , we can put our seasoning paste on the other side , making sure to get it nice and covered all over .
A little bit more fresh cracked pepper .
So it's been about three minutes .
I like to turn mine .
I'm not afraid to turn mine multiple times .
Like people tell you only to flip it once we're going to flip it over and you should get nice , a nice crust on there from that paste and look at those sear marks .
Oh , yeah .
And now we're just gonna render some of that fat on the sides .
Just hold it on its side .
It's really going to bring out the flavor in the steak .
So these are just about medium rare .
I did four minutes on the first side , about three minutes on the second side .
Now I'm going to shut this off and the secret here is we need to let these rest .
So I'll let them rest here while the griddle cools down a little bit and you'll know when they're medium rare when you start to see some of the blood come through like right over here .
So let's take them off and get them on the cutting board .
All right , let's cut into this and see how it looks .
Oh , perfect .
That's just how we like it .
Look at that nice pink center .
Very juicy .
Can you guys see the color on that ?
That is beautiful .
Let me get a bite of this .
Mm mm mm .
That is so flavorful .
I love this recipe .
It's so simple .
It's something you might not have ever thought about before , but a lot of famous chefs have done this .
I've seen it in restaurants .
It gives it such a wonderful beefy flavor .
Very rich and flavorful and uh just as tender as can be these uh grill pans or electric grills are fantastic for cooking steak .
