7 tips to cooking the PERFECT steak everytime, #Grilling, #BBQ, #TIPS, #Steak, #HowToCookSteak, #Beef

7 Quick and Easy Tips How to Cook the Perfect Steak

Summer is here which makes my brain think BBQ and GRILLING season is here.  It helps keep the kitchen cool and food over an open fire is just AMAZING when cooked right. Steak is tricky to make just right, but it can be done. Here are my tips and tricks on how to cook the perfect steak every time! Learn from my errors because steak mistakes don’t come cheap!

1. Season,season,season: Add salt before cooking to add flavor and draw out water so you get a super crispy crust. I personally really enjoy the McCormick Montreal Steak seasoning, and some lemon pepper seasoning.  Hold off on adding additional pepper or fresh herbs until just before serving to prevent burning.

2. Sear: In order to get that crunchy crust on the outside of your steak, you need to sear the meat. Heat vegetable or canola oil in a pan until it just begins to smoke. Then add your meat. If you hear a loud sizzle you’re doing it right!

3. Cook: After you sear each side for 3-4 minutes cook to your desired level of doneness. The total cooking time depends on the size and cut of your steak.

4. Temperature: The easier way to tell whether your steak is done to your liking is to use a meat thermometer.

Rare Steak:120 degrees Fahrenheit

Medium Rare: 130 F

Medium:140

Medium Well: 150

Well Done: 160

5. Just before your steak is done, reduce the heat to medium add 2-3 tablespoons of butter, freshly ground black pepper, and any fresh herbs you’d like. Constantly spoon butter over your steak. Switch sides and repeat.

6. Let your meat rest. Never cut your meat immediately after it’s done cooking. By letting it rest you will keep all those delicious juices inside which will make the meat moist.

7. Cut against the grain. Your knife should be at a right angle (L shape) to the grain(lines on the meat).

BLT Pasta Salad Recipe, Quick and easy perfect meal for a hot summer day #pasta #BLT #Summer Recipe #saladI made this salad for my family last week… they all loved it.  It was perfect for a hot summer day. Always make me happy when I make a meal the whole family enjoys and when the kids are asking for a second helping.

You will need:

1 lb cooked bacon (save some of the bacon drippings)

1 lb Rotini Pasta (6-8 cups cooked pasta)

5 cups chopped romaine or leaf lettuce

4 Roma tomatoes (2-3 cups)

1 small red onion sliced (1 cup)

2-3 cups Ranch Dressing ( I like the kind you make at home from a packet with mayo and milk, but you could use bottled dressing if needed)

Cook your bacon make sure you save some of the bacon drippings.  Set bacon aside to cool.  Don’t forget about our post on how to make the PERFECT COOKED BACON BITS at home.  Cook your pasta according to package directions, drain and rinse with COLD water. Put the noodles in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before assembling the salad to make sure they are chilled.

Chop the roma tomatoes and romaine lettuce , and slice the red onion.

Toss the cooled pasta, lettuce, tomatoes, onions and ranch dressing.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Top with bacon. Stir in the bacon right before serving.

FLAVOR TIP ~ spoon some of the cooled (but still liquid) bacon drippings into the pasta salad.  It adds a rich level of bacon flavor, it only takes a few tablespoons to really bring out the flavor.

No Machine 4 Ingredient Mint & Chip Ice Cream   by Tiffany

You want to know what I learned this week?! I learned that you could take heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk and turn it into ice cream – thanks to my handy dandy Woman’s Day magazine.  I love homemade ice cream – but really don’t like the hassle that goes along with it.  This recipe is easy peasy and if you have a mixer – you’re in business! The end results were creamy-minty-chocolatey goodness without a lot of fuss! The best part – the flavor combinations are endless. Just start with a base of heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk and use your imagination. :) Of course –  I had to go with my favorite the first time around. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 can 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons mint extract
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 4 drops green food coloring, optional

Directions

  1. In a standing mixer, beat heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, and mint extract (If adding green food coloring, do so now.) until thick, stiff peaks form. Fold in chocolate chips. Transfer mixture to a freezer safe container or loaf pan. Cover and freeze overnight.
