The best way to cook a steak can vary depending on personal preference and the type of steak being cooked, but here is a general guide to cooking a steak:
Choose a good quality steak: Look for a steak that is well-marbled with fat for the best flavor and tenderness.
Preheat the grill or skillet: Heat the grill or skillet to high heat.
Cook the steak: For a 1-inch thick steak, cook for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium-rare or 4-5 minutes on each side for medium. Use a meat thermometer to ensure the steak reaches your desired level of doneness.
Let it rest: Remove the steak from the heat and let it rest for 5-10 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute and ensure a tender and juicy steak.
Serve and enjoy: Slice the steak against the grain and serve it with your favorite side dishes.
