Steak Night

As I continue to reflect on the importance of self-care and surrounding myself with a supportive crew, I can’t help but think about one of my favorite ways to unwind and connect with loved ones: steak night.

There’s something about a perfectly cooked steak that just hits the spot. Whether you prefer a rare or well-done steak, there are tips and tricks to ensure that your steak turns out just right.

First and foremost, start with a good cut of meat. A high-quality steak will make all the difference in the final result. Some popular cuts of steak include ribeye, filet mignon, and sirloin.

Next, prepare your grill or cast iron skillet. Make sure it’s hot before adding your steak. Season your steak generously with salt and pepper and add any other desired seasonings.

When grilling, sear each side for a few minutes before moving to indirect heat to finish cooking. When using a skillet, sear each side and finish cooking in the oven.

To achieve the perfect temperature, use a meat thermometer. A rare steak will read 125°F, medium-rare will read 130°F, medium will read 140°F, and well-done will read 160°F.

When it comes to sides, there are countless options to complement your steak. Some classic options include baked potatoes, roasted vegetables, and a crisp salad. And of course, don’t forget the steak sauce or chimichurri for added flavor.

In my own life, steak night has become a cherished tradition. It’s a time to unwind, connect with loved ones, and savor a delicious meal. And with these tips for grilling the perfect steak, it’s easier than ever to achieve a restaurant-quality meal at home.

At the end of the day, steak night is a classic way to enjoy good food and good company. By taking the time to prepare and cook a delicious steak, we can show ourselves and our loved ones some much-deserved self-care and appreciation.
