40 simple, saucy steak recipes
Adam Liaw's tips: The more often you flip a steak, the faster it will cook, but that also means it has less time to form a flavourful crust. If you want a more tender steak, flip it frequently, but if you want a more flavourful steak, flip it less often.
Cooking a good steak is about having a plan and sticking to it. First you need to find a good hunk of meat. Next is the cooking. A heavy pan that holds the heat and a good seasoning of salt are a must (I salt the steak just before it hits the pan). Flip it once, twice or 10 times, it doesn't really matter, as long as it gets cooked right with a dark brown crust. Then rest it on a warm plate out of any breeze for about half the time it took to cook it. It's that simple, really.
