Sliced Steak with Canadian Crust
Whether you’re on program (Optavia, keto, low-carb, etc.) or not, succulent, juicy and perfectly cooked steak makes for an incredible lunch, dinner or even breakfast (think eggs, yum!). The secret to making a world class steak is easy- it starts with seasoning and finishes with proper cooking technique.
The steps are simple and the results are OUTRAGEOUS! This Throw Together Thursday meal is made complete by the addition of a yummy side dish like Restaurant Style Broccoli Rabe, Sauteed Veggies with Lemon & Garlic or Creamy Cole Slaw.
Perfectly cooked medium-rare and encrusted with flavor, this steak makes for an incredible meal, bite after delicious bite.
- 2- 10 ounce steaks good for grilling (ask your butcher for suggestions) about 1 1/2″ thick
1 Tablespoon (1 Capful) Stacey Hawkins Flavor Quake Steak Seasoning (or other dry steak seasoning)
Trim all visible fat from the steak and pour the capful of seasoning over the meat. Pat the seasoning carefully into the beef so that it sticks.
Let the steak rest for 3-5 minutes so the seasonings have a chance to rehydrate. While the steak is resting, turn on your gas grill (or indoor grill, charcoal grill, etc.) and heat to 400 degrees F.
When hot, place the steak in the center of the grill and cook for 6-8 minutes, seasoning side UP. After 8 minutes, DO NOT FLIP THE STEAK OVER, but rather, using tongs, rotate it 45 degrees. Allow it to cook for an additional 6-8 minutes, or until steak reaches desired temperature as verified by a meat thermometer.
Place the steak on a cutting board and let it rest for 3 minutes. Putting the steak on a super hot grill and cooking on one side only allows a lovely crust to form on the outside while letting the beef cook slowly internally. Letting it rest allows the steak to finish cooking on the inside while also keeping it nice and juicy.
Slice the steak nice and thin, on a diagonal using a very sharp knife (careful!) This allows the crust to stay in place.
Serve piping hot with a lovely side dish! Save the leftovers (if any…) for a salad, sandwich, wrap or to serve with eggs at a future meal. Enjoy!
