Beef

If you experienced the 90's propaganda machine from the cattle industry, you would remember the infamous slogan, Beef. It's What's for Dinner! For many, this powerful message has imprinted on our brain as if our mind were hacked. But truth to be told, Americans have loved beef long before the slogan. We did not need 17 months of an advertising campaign that costed $42 million to influence us, simply putting a juicy ribeye in front of most Americans and we are hypnotized.

The tradition started long ago, the wine and the steak duo is the critical element to every celebration. But as home chefs become more equipped with the necessary equipment, and the sea of pro tips jamming into every food related webpage, make a fine steak at home is no longer a mystery. In this website we will explore several American classic using FinaMill, we hope you will like what we have put together for you.

Grilled Ribeye

Everyone should know how to cook a steak on the grill. It is an American classic and something that is both tasty and easy.


About


Everyone should know how to cook a steak on the grill. It is an American classic and something that is both tasty and easy. First thing you want to do is choose the cut of meat you want. They all have different strengths, and you should experiment with a few different cuts to see what you like the best. The cut you choose will also change how you cook it slightly. For this recipe I recommend either a New York or Rib Eye steak. Rib Eye has the most fat, and thus the most flavor. Also, because fat is an insulator, Rib Eye steak is more forgiving to overcooking. New York is also a great choice because the fattest part is all on one side, so it is easy to cook very evenly.

Equipment


Ingredients


  • 1 inch thick steak (Rib Eye, or New York)
  • Whole Black Pepper
  • Himalayan Salt

Method


  1. Remove the steak from the refrigerator and from the packaging and leave on your counter for at least 30 minutes. An hour is better. This gives the steak time to reach room temperature and can produce a better cook when it hits the flame.
  2. Get your seasonings ready: Lay out a FinaPod with salt, and one pod with pepper.
  3. Using your FinaMill click in the salt and coat the first side evenly with coarse grind. Next, flip the steak with your free hand and coat the back side with salt also.
  4. Click out the salt pod and click in the pepper pod, coat the first side with coarse pepper evenly, using your free hand flip the steak and coat the backside.
  5. Preheat the grill. Make sure your grill is very hot and that the grill surface is clean. The grill surface should be brushed clean of debris. Take a paper towel and pour a teaspoon of cooking oil on it. Brush the grill surface to coat. If the oil burns off, that’s ok as the surface will retain some and keep your steak from sticking.
  6. Every grill is different, and heat and cooking times can vary greatly. I always keep mine on high and just stay close buy and watch to make sure nothing is burning. If you see a lot of smoke check the meat immediately.
  7. Place the steak on the grill and cook on high heat. After 2 minutes, turn the steak 90 degrees. This will help to get that cross-hatching grill pattern. Cook for 2 more minutes and flip.
  8. Again cook for 2 minutes and turn 90 degrees.
  9. Depending on the cut of steak and the temperature of the grill, this method should produce a steak that is medium rare or even rare. If you want your steak more ‘done’ add up to 2 minutes to each side.
  10. Pull the steak off of the grill and cover with foil or another plate. Allow the steak to ‘rest’ for a minimum of 10 minutes. Resting the steak allows the muscle fibers to relax and reabsorb the juices within the meat.
  11. There you have it! The most basic way to make a great steak. Once you have mastered this method, you can experiment with other spices in your FinaPod like dried minced garlic, dried rosemary, dried thyme and more!
