Making art out of everyday life

Steak -

Recipe by Erin Hensley, an American who’s eating and loving in the UK:

Open window. Bring meat to room temperature. Heat grill pan or cast iron skillet to high and when a drop of water sizzles on the surface, add equal parts olive oil and butter to the pan, about 2-3 tablespoons of each for 2 10-12oz steaks. To cook rare, cook each side for approximately 3 minutes, there should be a dark crust but the meat inside should remain juicy.

Cook longer if you prefer your steak less rare, I won’t think any less of you. But be aware that most people overcook steak, and it is virtually impossible to undercook it as you can eat the stuff raw. Allow the steak to rest on a warmed plate, and once removed add a glug of red wine, brandy, or sherry, even a squeeze of lemon, to the remaining juices and allow to briefly reduce. Decant this over your steak and veg and let it double as a gravy and salad dressing. [via getcrafty]
