Gordon Ramsay's Perfect Steak

Gordon Ramsay's simple but beautifully flavored method in making his steaks.


Gordon Ramsay's Steak Recipe, simple and perfect tenderness and taste for steak


Sometimes it is intimidating to me to buy steak. It is a temperamental piece of meat that needs vigilant watching while cooking. It also isn't cheap! We don't buy steak often, but when we do, there is no way I will waste it by improper cooking! It's hard to imagine anything Gordon Ramsay does ever being second rate, and that is no exception when it comes to a little steak tutorial he has had on YouTube for several years. It is pretty full proof and I wanted to share in recipe form with you all!
Gordon Ramsay's Steak Recipe, simple and perfect tenderness and taste for steak

1) Make sure your steaks are completely thawed. Remove them from the fridge and allow them to sit outside fridge for AT LEAST 20 minutes.

2) Put a pan over medium-high heat. Season thawed steaks with a good amount of large grain salt (sea salt) and ground pepper, rub bottom of steaks with excess salt and pepper that has fallen onto table.

3) Once pan begins to smoke drop 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil in and coat pan in it. Lay steaks away from you into pan and let sear for one minute on each side. There should be three sides you sear (top, bottom, and fat side). Render the fat throughout all the cooking. To render fat, tilt pan up and and lean steaks against far edge of pan as you see below.

4) Crush some fresh garlic, pinch off some fresh thyme, grab another Tbsp of olive oil and add it to pan around steaks while continuing to turn the steaks every minute.

5) Add 2 Tbsp of butter to hot pan and baste the steaks by scooping melted butter on top of the cooking steaks.

6) Gordon tells you to check tenderness by equating the tenderness of your palm to rare, top of the wrist as medium, and just below that as well done. It is difficult for me to use that method so I use cheek as rare, chin as medium, and forehead as well done.

7) Continue basting and turning steaks on the minute until steak is at desired tenderness! Brush steaks with garlic. Remove from heat and place on cutting board and let rest 5-10 minutes, serve and enjoy!
