Extra virgin olive oil has a low smoke point of around 320 degrees, and butter is a bit higher at around 350 degrees. Better choices for grilling or frying steak include peanut oil, canola oil, and extra light olive oil, all of which have smoke points above 400 degrees.

Should you put olive oil on steak before grilling?

Season the steak one hour before cooking, using extra virgin olive oil, fresh ground black pepper, and kosher or sea salt. Leave it at room temperature until cooking. Brush each side with 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil. For a rare or medium finish, turn the steak over and finish cooking to the right temperature.

How do you know when a steak is medium rare?

Touch your middle finger to the tip of your thumb. That’s how a medium rare steak feels. Next, touch the tip of your ring finger to your thumb. This is what a medium-well will feel like.

How many minutes do you cook a steak?

Place the steaks on the grill and cook until golden brown and slightly charred, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the steaks over and continue to grill 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare (an internal temperature of 135 degrees F), 5 to 7 minutes for medium (140 degrees F) or 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well (150 degrees F).

How long do you cook a steak on each side?

Cook a 2cm-thick piece of steak for 2-3 minutes each side for rare, 4 minutes each side for medium, and 5-6 minutes each side for well-done. Turn the steak only once, otherwise it will dry out. Always use tongs to handle steak as they won’t pierce the meat, allowing the juices to escape.

How do you tenderize steak with salt?

To properly tenderize a steak, lay the steak out on a plate and cover each side with approximately 1 teaspoon of kosher/sea salt before cooking. Use your fingers to gently work the salt granules into the surface, breaking down the fibers of the meat. (For even more flavor, add crushed garlic to the salt.)

Do you oil the steak or the pan?

You put oil in the pan

Don’t go putting your vegetable oil or sunflower oil straight into your frying pan. When cooking steak you need to oil the steak itself to ensure that perfect outer texture once cooked, and of course so it doesn’t stick. Also, do allow your pan to get hot before frying up that piece of meat!

Should you flip steak once?

Flipping your steak frequently helps your meat cook more evenly. If you only flip your steak once, it’s still going to be delicious. And if you’re cooking for a crowd, by all means, flip only once.
