After two days on the run after a horrible storm, I thought I deserved a nice steak for dinner. So I went to visit Steve. Steve is awesome. Steve has been voted the best butcher in Connecticut. He's not only a lovely dude but he knows his s**t. (I don't mess about when I talk steak.) So I thought that I would share some of the wisdom Steve imparted on me today which lead to the perfect fillet steak (if you like it rare...add a bit of time if you don't but whatevs):
1. If you live in Connecticut, visit Steve! Get yourself a nice fillet.
2. Heat up the grill and only season (salt, pepper and garlic) your steak right before throwing it on the flame. If you season it too early, the salt will draw out all the moisture.
4. Grill the steak for 7 minutes per side (remember, don't move it once it's down) and then again on each side for 3 minutes. See if you can get those lovely crossed grill marks :)
5. Let the steak rest a bit before serving and cutting up. And when you're ready...just enjoy!
