This year I have been focusing on cooking the perfect steak. Of course, the perfect steak varies from person to person. The first and most important step is to let your steak get to room temperature. I personally prefer a bloody/juicy steak, my brother on the other hand prefers a seared steak. The key to a seared steak is to limit flipping, on the contrary for a juicy steak, one should flip somewhat persistently. Both methods of cooking require persistence in regard to temperature, it is recommended to have a thermometer close by. When cooking a steak, one should always use the pan to their advantage, an example would be to tilt it when cooking the sides of the steak. I myself do not prefer drenching my steak in sauce, instead I let it sit in the sauce for a few minutes. This a great opportunity to get your internal temperature right, if you were skeptical about burning your steak earlier, this is the time to get to its ideal temperature.
