The ideal cooking of steak on a grill includes three criteria:

The post Grilling – For Ideal Steak On A grill appeared first on cookwarezon.com.

]]> How to get a perfect steak for a barbecue?

The ideal cooking of steak on a grill includes three criteria: meat cuts, spices, and cooking

Many criteria should be considered while choosing your steak cut; one of them is the origin of the steak (e.g.Brazilian beef, Australian beef).

Again, choosing a steak of a certain origin is subject to personal taste.

The type of steak cut is the main contributor to achieve a satisfactory experience when grilling a steak at home.raw steak

Depending on the amount of fat and the way it is distributed, the steak will have a varying tenderness and special flavor.

 

Tenderloin
Often referred to as “Filet mignon”, it is the most expansive cut of steak, for its mild taste and least amount of fat included. It is a favorite choice.

New York Strip
Often referred to as “top sirloin”. This cut is less tender compared to tenderloin, with some fat marbling throughout, giving it a good beefy flavor.

T-Bone
 it is the best choice for hardcore “Carnivore”. It is sold with a T-shaped bone-in, with meat on both sides. This cut has generous fat marbling throughout, making it super-tender and juicy, with beefy taste

Ribeye
Often referred to as “Entrecôte”. This cut is a prime rib cut down into individual steaks. It has lots of fat marbling the meat and large pockets of fat interspersed throughout, making it extra juicy with a flavorful beefy taste

Seasoning
Regarding seasoning, a real steak fan would prefer having his/her steak on a grill taste outstanding, that’s why I recommend using only a little pinch of pepper and sea salt for seasoning a steak piece, leaving it for fifteen minutes before grilling. Once your steak is ready for eating, you can enjoy the diversity of sauces and toppings available in the market and at any steakhouse, but for grilling use only pepper and sea salt

Cook the steak on A grill

When it comes to the cooking process, there are two main styles: charcoal grilling and pan grilling. Pan grilling involves fewer parameters to control and hence it is easier to master.

Required Tools
For pan grilling, you need mainly three items (in addition to a good piece of steak): a pan, greasing material, and a steak tong.

 recommend using a non-stick pan, with adequate size allowing enough space around the steak piece. For greasing, you can use normal frying oil, or better using grilling spray, which is easier to spread all over the pan. When it comes to steak tong, it is recommended to choose one that is big enough to carry the steak piece steadily, but not too big to make it difficult to turn the steak piece around while being grilled.

Cooking Style
One important thing you should learn is the steak cooking styles. Cooking style, referred to as steak “Doneness”, impacts the color and tenderness of steak piece, and its taste as well. As a general rule, leaving a piece of steak for a longer time on the fire, make it darker in color and harder in touch. There are five common steak cooking styles

medium well steak

Rare
 the cooking style for real “carnivore”. The piece of steak is nearly raw. A rare steak is browned around the sides, and bright red in the middle.

Medium Rare
Most of the center of the steak piece should be pink in color with a hint of red. The sides should be well brown, and the top and bottom of the caramel should be a dark brown color with good grill marks.

Medium
This is the common level of doneness often acceptable by everybody. recommend grilling to this style when cooking for a dish party or a family gathering. The piece of steak will have a thick band of light pink through the middle, but more brown than pink. The sides should be a rich brown color and the top and bottom charred darkly, but not black.

Medium Well
 with only a hint of pink in the very middle of the piece of steak. The surface should be dark brown with a good discharge on top and bottom. This steak will be very stiff but still have a slightly spongy feel in the center.

Well done
For real steak fans, this as the less popular doneness level. On the other hand, this is the most popular choice for people who eat steak occasionally and feel more comfortable with the “Safe” choice. This level of doneness is achieved only by slowly cooking the piece of steak at relatively low temperature till there is no trace of red or pint at all, while the outside is brown with no traces of burns (Easy to mention, difficult to achieve)

Finger Test for steak-grilling.

 an easier method referred to as the “Finger Test” to be used while cooking a piece of steak, to know whether it has reached a certain doneness level.

With your hand open, press the meat of your hand (under your thumb) with your finger, use the feeling of the meat under your finger as a comparison when you touch the piece of steak while being grilled:

Press with your index finger, the feeling compare to the rare cooking style of steak
Press with your middle finger, the feeling compare to the medium-rare cooking style of steak
Press with your ring finger, the feeling compare to the medium well cooking style of steak
Press with your pinky finger, the feeling compare to the well-done cooking style of steak

This is a great starter recipe idea for a vegetarian dinner party. Cut eight leeks into five-centimeter lengths and put them in a pan. Add 4 oz (120 ml) olive oil, 10 oz (300 ml) water, a teaspoon of white sugar, and a tablespoon of tomato concentrate.

Season with salt and black pepper and cook covered for 15 minutes or until the leeks are soft. Add some lemon juice and serve the leeks hot with some chopped fresh parsley and a handful of small black olives.

4-Avocado (Smooth and creamy)

Put everything in a blender. Pour into a cocktail glass. Decorate with herb and glazed cherries. Cool in the fridge!

Simply stack each pineapple square with one mint leaf, followed by half a cherry. Spike through with a toothpick. Arrange on a plate and keep cool.

Alright, so that’s the entree taken care of. Now for the main course. You’ll notice that these carefully selected ingredients come together in rather unusual but delightful ways…

8-Tofu BBQ Skewers:

I like this recipe because nothing can taste bad once it’s been BBQed and got a little sauce on it. It’s easy to prepare, all fresh ingredients, and oh so healthy. Oh, and the kids will eat it too!

Ingredients:

If you’re having trouble finding real Tofu and not the imitation meat stuff, try the local Asian supermarket. They sell little packs that are the perfect size for 2 people. It comes in white squares, about an inch deep, and usually swimming in its juices. Lovely…

Prep is simple for this one, just chop it all up and stick it onto a skewer. Crush the garlic into the olive oil, then drizzle and coat the skewers all around (not too much). Salt and pepper to taste.

9-Parsnip and Parmesan Brochette:

An Italian snack favorite, this one is also super easy.

Ingredients:

Preparation:

Heat a griddle pan and toast the bread for about 2 minutes until golden and marked. Rub a clove of garlic over each piece.

Heat some butter in a large frying pan then fry the parsnips over medium heat for about 20 minutes until they are softened. Add a little if you need it. Remove and mash to a puree in a mixer. Should be served at room temperature, so leave it to cool down if needed (or warm-up if you already prepared it).

Spread the parsnip on the toast, and garnish with some rocket leaves and Parmesan. Voila! Deliciously easy canapes for your party!

1- Turkey Salad With Toasted Almonds And Curry.

Sliced turkey breast strips are perfect for stir fry and salads. This is a quick-fix recipe because you do not roast the meat, you poach it for a few minutes on top of the stove. Of course, leftover turkey may be used. Substitute any seasonal fruit you like for the cantaloupe: honeydew, pineapple, strawberries, peaches, pears, or apples. Your family will enjoy Fruit Salad with Toasted Almonds and Curry all year long.

INGREDIENTS:

Salad Dressing:

METHOD:

Put turkey strips in a small skillet. Add water until it is halfway up the side of the pan. Poach turkey gently, over low heat, 8-10 minutes until done. Drain and cool turkey. Meanwhile, toast the almonds in a 275-degree toaster oven or skillet, watching them carefully.

Cut turkey strips into bite-sized pieces. Add celery, cranberries, green onions, almonds, and cantaloupe. Combine dressing ingredients, pour over salad, and fold in with rubber spatula. Cover the salad and refrigerate for two hours to blend flavors. Serve on butter lettuce, red leaf lettuce, or fresh spinach. Garnish salad with lemon wedges. Makes four generous servings.

2- Peach Salad With Fresh fruit and sesame oil 

sesame oil can add an undercurrent of flavor to many recipes. According to Tatiana Morales, author of the CBS News website article, “Cooking Oils That are Good for You,” sesame oil is healthy. This nutty oil contains vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps lower cholesterol, magnesium, copper, calcium, iron, and vitamin B6.

Two types of oil are available. Light is made from untoasted sesame seeds. Dark is made from toasted ones. The Fine Cooking website tells how to choose the type that will work best in recipes. Since the untoasted is milder, it is often used for flavoring, as with this salad recipe. Toasted oil is used in stir-fry and Asian noodle recipes. As the website notes, however, “a little can go a long way.”

This fruit salad recipe combines the sweetness of peaches, the tang of citrus, the nuttiness of sesame oil, and the crunchiness of almonds. Fresh Peach Salad with Orange Dressing and Toasted Almonds goes well with grilled steak, chicken, pork, and salmon. Add some leftover chicken and you have the main course.

Ingredients:

Toast almonds in a small skillet, watching constantly. Remove almonds as soon as they begin to brown. Whisk vinegar, orange juice, sesame oil, olive oil, salt, and pepper together. Put salad greens in a large bowl. Add sliced peaches and toasted almonds. Drizzle dressing over salad (you may not need it all) and toss gently. Makes 4 servings.

Before you use the fresh root of ginger you should peel it with a potato peeler or scrape it off with a spoon.


In her book, “A Matter of Taste,” Sylvia Windle Humphrey describes ginger as a catalyst that enhances other flavors. But this ancient root has so much flavor you may enjoy it on its own in ginger tea. Crystallized ginger is candy. If you are looking for an unusual dessert, add finely chopped crystallized ginger to softened vanilla ice cream. The addition of ginger is what makes this fruit salad recipe special.

Ingredients:

Method:

Toast the almonds in a small skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally. As soon as the nuts start to brown remove them from the heat and set aside. In a small jar combine rice vinegar, honey, and chopped ginger. Put on the lid and shake well. Remove the core from the pineapple and cut into six slices. Place a layer of torn lettuce leaves on the bottom of a platter. Lay pineapple rings on top of the lettuce. Drizzle salad dressing over the pineapple and garnish with toasted almonds. Serve immediately. You may refrigerate the salad (without the dressing) for a half-hour and add the dressing at the last minute. Makes six generous servings.

]]> Crab is one of those types of meat that varies in taste and you should take the time to learn about the different types before you make this recipe. The meat varies considerably when it comes to texture, grain, and sweetness. There are many types of crab available: Blue, Alaskan King, Dungeness, Rock, Jonah, Stone, Horseshoe, and Alaskan Snow (also called Queen Crab). Of course, those are just some of the commercially available types of crab. Depending on your tastes, you may prefer one type over another – but you need to do your homework before purchasing crab meat!cooked crab

“Softshell” crab meat can refer to any of the varieties of crab. The term refers to a particular growth phase when the crab loses its shell for a brief time frame, grows in size, and then forms a new shell. “Picked crab meat” is meat that is handpicked. Picked meat is generally the best although it can be more expensive than machine processed. If you purchase picked meat, you’ll save time when preparing it because it is usually free of shell fragments. Otherwise, if you purchase machine processed crab meat, you will need to spend a few minutes rinsing your crab meat to clear it of any possible shell debris.

To make the pasta salad, take a large pot and boil the water with some salt added to it. Add pasta to the water boiled and let it cook for about 8 to 10 minutes or as instructed on the pack. There are several different types of pasta available in the market; some are uniquely known in the region or may have different names in different regions. Additionally, for marketing reasons, new shapes of pasta are usually invented by cooks and manufacturers or they may assign new names to old shapes. Once the pasta has been brought to boil drain it with cool water and set aside. Now to make the dressing take some low-fat Greek yogurt, low-fat buttermilk, regular mayonnaise, freshly chopped parsley, minced roasted garlic and clove, lemon juice, white vinegar, salt, and black pepper and mix it thoroughly. On the other hand, preheat the oven and cook vegetables like mushrooms, onions, broccoli, tomatoes, red green & yellow bell peppers, olives, celery, feta cheese, and corn.
