- (1) Any Steak
The key to cooking a perfect steak is how dry it is when you go to cook it. Whether on the grill, the broiler or stovetop in cast iron skillet the key is a dry steak when you go to cook it.
The first step is to thaw your steaks. You can do this over a day or so in the refrigerator if you are not in a hurry, on the counter top in a few hours or in cool water bath in less than an hour. Leave steaks in sealed package while thawing.
Second, Remove the steaks from the package. and completely dry them with a paper towel, both sides.
Third, Place steaks on paper towel on a plate and put in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, can be left in for a few hours in you are working ahead. The longer they stay in the refrigerator the dryer they become as the dehumidifier in the refrigerator continues the drying process.
Lastly, either season right before or right after you cook your steaks. Cook on the grill, broiler or stovetop to your desired doneness.
