How to make your steak better than your favorite place!

Have you ever wondered why steaks from restaurants always seem to taste so much better than the ones you make at home? There are a few key things they ~secretly~ do to make their steaks special. Find out how!


The right premium cut of meat. Steaks from restaurants are often made from high-quality cuts, such as ribeye or filet mignon, which are known for their tenderness and flavor. While these cuts may be more expensive, they are worth the try if you want to make a steak that tastes just as good as the ones from your favorite place. Look for steaks that have great marbling.


Another important factor is seasoning. Steaks from restaurants are often seasoned with a blend of salt, pepper, and other spices that help to enhance the flavor of the meat. At home, be generous with the salt and pepper, and consider adding other spices such as thyme, rosemary, or oregano.  Don't be afraid to try out different seasonings to find the combination that works best for you.


Cooking technique is also key to making a tasty steak. Restaurants often use high-heat grills or broilers to cook their steaks, which helps to create a nice crust on the outside while keeping the inside moist and tender. If you don't have access to a grill, you can achieve similar results by using a cast-iron skillet or broiling the steak in your oven. Just be sure to preheat your skillet or broiler before cooking the steak, and cook it for the appropriate amount of time based on its thickness and desired level of doneness.


Consider making your own sauce or butter to accompany your steak, such as a red wine reduction, garlic butter, or chimichurri sauce. It's really the small things!


Choose high-quality cuts of meat, season generously, cook with high heat, and add finishing touches to enhance the flavor. With a little practice and experimentation, you can make a steak at home that rivals the ones from your favorite steakhouse.
