How To Cook A Cheap Steak Vs. An Expensive Steak

Here is what you’ll need!

Servings: 2-4

1 pound flap meat
½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
4 large cloves garlic
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Gallon-sized plastic zipper bag
Cast-iron skillet

1. Place flap meat, soy sauce, and pepper in the gallon-sized plastic bag.
2. Place garlic cloves on a flat surface and crush with hand using palm. Just enough to crack the clove open a bit.
3. Add garlic to bag and seal, making sure to remove as much air from the bag as possible.
4. Massage the contents of the bag to ensure the soy sauce mixture is completely coating the meat.
5. Leave bag in the refrigerator to marinate for 1-12 hours.
6. Place cast-iron skillet in cool oven and preheat to 475°F/240°C.
7. Remove steak from marinade and thoroughly pat dry.
8. Once oven is preheated, transfer skillet to stovetop and place on place on high heat.
9. Add oil to skillet.
10. Once oil starts to shimmer, but before it starts to smoke, carefully place steak in pan.
11. Flip steak every 30 seconds to a minute, moving the steak to the hottest parts of the pan each time.
12. Once internal temperature reaches a few degrees below 135°F/57°C remove steak from pan and place on a cutting board to rest.
13. Let rest for 8-10 minutes.
14. Slice steak against the grain and serve!

Servings: 2-4

1 1.5- to 2-inch-thick rib eye steak
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Optional: Pepper

1. Liberally season steak on all sides with salt and (optional) pepper. Place steak in fridge for 1 to 24 hours. If leaving for more than an hour, cover with plastic wrap.
2. Preheat oven to 275°F/140°C.
3. Transfer steak to a wire rack on top of a baking sheet.
4. Bake for about 20-30 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches about 95°F for medium-rare.
5. Preheat cast-iron skillet on high heat for 10-15 minutes.
6. Add oil to skillet.
7. Once oil starts to shimmer but before it starts to smoke, carefully place steak in pan.
8. Cook for about 1-2 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature is a few degrees below 135°F/57°C and a dark crust has formed.
9. Rest the steak on a cutting board or wire rack for about couple minutes.
10. Slice steak and serve!

I really dislike that typical entitled voice explaining everything like “Fuck I just wanna end this shitty video that I don’t really care about and go to the nearest starbucks for my daily dose of green tea and soy”

HazyHerbivore says:

Terrible. Butter in the pan with a crushed garlic clove and sprig of thyme. Butter baste whilst cooking.

Stephanie Jaquez-Rocha says:

I’m hungry

Nella Muñoz says:

I can’t believe so many people are complaining about her vocal fry? I find it really’s as if I were right next to her and this is an intimate lesson. Also, she doesn’t have the annoying californian accent which is aaaaalways a plus.

Thiago Da Silva says:

I got the chills every time she flipped the steak before cutting it

Les Abiera says:

You sounds very sleepy huh.

Anthony V says:

You want some meat, you vocal-fry-talking bitch? I’ll put some meat in your mouth to open up your vocal cords so you can speak normally!!!

Leanna Fodor says:

Okay, so you support that not eating meat and caring/being mindful about helping the environment is good on Earth day, but then you suddenly go straight back to cooking meat & making recipes? Not cool man. Not cool. By making these videos of making/cooking meat, you’re continuously supporting the exact opposite of what you said on Earth day, which I find extremely irresponsible
