There’s nothing quite like the delicate taste of grilled or pan-seared beef. Our guide to famous steak recipes lets you produce high-quality steaks right at home. There’s no need to make reservations at the steakhouse.
We recommend you use grass-fed beef for your steak cuts. Factory farmed animals, such as cows, receive high doses of hormones and antibiotics to ensure rapid growth and disease prevention. These animals often experience shocking living conditions. This negative energy, along with all the hormones and antibiotics, passes into the meat that we eat.
Grass-fed beef contains higher amounts of CLA – an Omega-3 essential fatty acid that enhances your health. The meat has a firmer feel to it and a robust flavor that tastes great on the grill or the pan. Select your cut and follow the recipe guide from our gourmet chefs below. We have 15-ways to cook a terrific steak, which one will you start with tonight?
1. Seared NY Strip with Blue Cheese Sauce
A New York strip is possibly the tastiest cut of beef you can buy. Visit your butcher and ask him to cut you a 1-1/2-inch thick steak right off of the bone. The best part about a NY strip is the fact that it’s so easy to cook, the meat heats up fast, and it’s ready in no time flat. Our recipe enhances the flavor of the steak with a blue cheese sauce that’s an incredible addition to the steak.
1-1/2-inch thick, 1lb. NY strip, (we don’t like going thinner than this, or thicker than 2-inches.)
1-tablespoon coconut oil.
2-tablespoons grass-fed butter.
2-cloves minced garlic.
Crushed Himalayan pink salt and cracked black pepper to taste.
INGREDIENTS – Blue Cheese Cream Sauce
2- tablespoons chopped parsley.
½-cup blue cheese, crumbled.
1-cup heavy cream.
Pat the steak dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Place a skillet over high heat until red hot. Add the coconut oil to the pan and let it melt. Place the steak in the pan and sear for 30-seconds on each side.
Add the rosemary and butter to the pan. Cook further for 2 to 3-minutes on each side after searing, basting with the butter.
While the steak rests, add the cream to a saucepan over medium heat. Add the blue cheese and stir until it melts. Remove from the heat and smother the steak.
