Yup food abuse ^^; sorry this post is not vegetarian friendly ^^;
Holiday season means lots of cooking, eating and cleaning, as I was in front of the stove most of the time, these photos are taken by my husband on his NEX 5N with a macro lens ^^/
The star of the dinner that night was beef steak… cooked by my sis in law. ^o^
Gosh, it was so good, and you might not believe me if I told you it’s just seasoned with salt on each side and then pan fried to perfection on medium high heat with a little oil on a non stick pan… ^^; A pair of thongs is used to poke/press the surface of the steak as it cooks, to make sure it doesn’t get too hard, as that means a tough piece of meat ^^;
The fat on the meat will melt into the pan, giving the meat more flavor, and you may need to wear a pair of gloves to prevent the fat/grease from spattering onto your sleeves/hand/arms as you cook ^^;
Steak was bought on the same day, taken out of the fridge to reach room temperature — to relax the meat before cooking (don’t leave it out too long tho!), while I prepare the side dishes of mushroom, onion and green beans and carrot sticks.
We have 2 birthdays in the family to celebrate in December, so it meant moar food abuse other than Christmas/New year lol, but this is definitely a note worthy meal to document :P
After cooking, you let the steak rest for a little bit before eating, as eating it immediately will be a bit too hot, and the juices might run out causing meat to be dry I think?
It’s quite a large piece of meat, I end up eating about half and the rest was packed lunch XD
Thanks for looking! :3 Happy New Year!!!
