Grass-fed Steak Cooking Tips
Effortless Steak Preparation: From Thawing to Slicing

Directions

THAW YOUR STEAK WITH EASE

For those unexpected moments when you need to defrost your steak quickly, fear not! Simply submerge your frozen steak (in its packaging) in cool water for an hour or less. Ensure there are no holes in the package; if there are, place it in a ziplock bag before immersing it in water. And remember, never defrost your steak in the microwave!

ALLOW YOUR STEAK TO WARM UP

Give your steak some time to reach room temperature before cooking for optimal results. Let it sit out for about an hour before you start cooking to ensure even cooking throughout.

PAT DRY BEFORE COOKING

Before you start cooking, gently pat your steaks dry with paper towels. This step ensures a crispy exterior by removing any excess moisture, especially after thawing.

KEEP SEASONING SIMPLE

Enhance the natural flavors of our high-quality grass-fed beef with simple seasonings like salt, pepper, garlic, or our Rancher’s Blend Seasoning. Remember, the focus should always be on the star of the show – the steak itself.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT COOKING OIL

Opt for clean oils with high smoke points like avocado oil, clarified butter, tallow, or lard to avoid harmful chemicals from heating.

SELECT THE PROPER COOKWARE AND PREHEAT

For the perfect sear and caramelization, use a cast iron skillet or our pellet smoker. Ensure your skillet is hot but not smoking to achieve that ideal crust.

DON’T SWEAT THE FLIPPING

Whether you flip your steak often or leave it undisturbed, the end result will still be delicious. Find what works best for you and your cooking style. We, personally, cook 5 minutes on one side and 3 minutes on the other for medium rare perfection!

AVOID OVERCOOKING

To prevent overcooking, use a meat thermometer and remove the steak from the heat source when it's 5 degrees Fahrenheit below your desired temperature.

LET IT REST

Allow your steak to rest for 5 to 10 minutes after cooking to seal in those flavorful juices. Cover it with a bowl to retain heat and moisture.

SLICE AGAINST THE GRAIN

For tender slices, cut against the grain after letting the meat rest. This simple trick enhances the dining experience.

And for an extra touch of elegance, warm your plates before serving using your oven, microwave, or stovetop. Elevate your beef experience with Autumn's Harvest Farm.
