Here's how to achieve the desired done-ness for your steaks!
For many of us, cooking steaks may seem like a challenging tasks because it is so hard to perfect the done-ness of your steak. We're afraid to cook it in fear of ruining a good slab of steak so we often leave it to the professional chefs at restaurants. But the time has come to step up and be a master chef yourself with these useful tips to achieve the desired done-ness of your steak.
To cook a rare steak, it doesn't take a lot of time! You just have to sear it for 2 minutes without moving the steak. Then turn and cook for another 2 minutes for rare. Once done, leave it to rest for a few minutes to finish the cooking process. And there you have it! All done within 10minutes for this done-ness.
Done-ness (Medium Rare):
For this done-ness, it is basically almost the same as cooking a rare steak but just that you have to leave it for probably 1-2minutes longer on each side. Cook it with high heat so that the outer layer of the steak gets that crust and the inside would not get overcook!
Personally, I'm a medium guy. For this done-ness, you just have to sear it for 4-5 minutes on each side. Then leave it to rest for about 3-4minutes and you should get that perfect pinkish glow when you open up that juicy steak.
Done-ness (Medium Well):
I would consider this done-ness to be quite tricky as you can easily get it overcooked and the steak will be tough! For this done-ness, you just have to sear it for 5 minutes on each side. Then leave it to rest for about 3-4minutes. If you can see slight pinkish colour on the inside then that would be the done-ness you want.
Done-ness (Well Done):
