What is the best cut of beef to use for a juicy steak?
A well-marbled cut of beef is the best steak to cook with us it will stay tender and juicy unlike some of the leaner cuts that tend to be drier. A cheaper cut of meat may result in a more chewy texture that is better suited for braising or slow-cooking in stews. We prefer rib-eye steak for this recipe however other steak cuts like New York Strip or Sirloin would also work just as well. The key to a well-cooked steak is to ensure it's close to room temperature before cooking and to flip the steak mid-way through cooking to ensure even heat distribution on both sides.
Why should you let a steak rest after cooking?
Another really important step that should never be skipped is letting the steak rest after cooking. As the steak cooks, muscle fibers start to firm up and water gets pushed towards the surface of the meat. If you cut into a steak right after cooking all this the liquid will run out of the meat and your beautiful steak will end up being very dry. By letting the steak rest for at least 5 minutes, the moisture has time to be re-absorbed and distributed back throughout the meat resulting in a tender, moist and juicy steak.
