If you want an epic summertime meal, grill a couple of steaks. It?s easy, it?s quick, but most importantly, it?s really good. There are a couple of things you should know before you fire up that grill though, even before you pick up a steak at the store.
Dale Talde, an acclaimed chef who gained popularity when competing on ?Top Chef?, told Francis Lam on Splendid Table, ?You have to invest in a great steak. If you?re at the supermarket rummaging around the $5.99-7.99 part of a butcher shop, you?re lost already.? Actually, Talde says you should be inching up closer to the $20/pound range.
And, once you do that, stick to the same cut if you want to master it. ?Find a cut, fall in love with it, and make it yours. If you love ribeye, cook a ribeye every time,? Talde says. ?Stick to it and master it.?
We found some great steak recipes. Pick the one you like and cook it all summer long.
