Steak is a fundamentally overrated foodstuff
A good steak is incredible. There’s plenty of disappointment to be found in the world of steak though.
Blue and steak tartare are completely different things.
blue ba da ba de steak tartare ba da ba doo da da
Even in my morally repugnant days I always thought it was mostly a waste of time. Like bacon.
Doneness depends on the steak. Fatty steaks like ribeye are grim when rare, but leaner ones can be bloody as you please.
The secret is leaving it to rest for a few minutes post cooking especially if you’re going rare
Only a complete fucking maniac would just whack it from the pan onto a plate and tuck straight in, surely?
Thought I was a medium rare fan but recent experiments with a meat thermometer have confirmed that my perfect steak is actually in the “rare” bracket
8.5/10, but people act like it’s the best thing ever
And leaving it to get to room temp before cooking
i prefer to just wander up to a cow and take a bite tbh, cut out the middlemen
I do enjoy a Korean/Japanese BBQ where you cook bits of steak and eat them straight off the grill. But resting is probably less of an issue with thin pieces.
Only a complete fucking maniac would just whack it straight from the fridge into the pan, surely?
