The Ultimate Restaurant Steak

Have you ever wondered why the steaks from fancy restaurants are so good? They use a number of tricks to get their steaks seared hot and fast so they can achieve that perfect medium rare internal temperature and still have a thick, caramelized crusty surface. Some restaurants use very expensive broilers to do this and others use the method described here. The secret to the perfect steak is a combination of flavorings and intense contact heat. The perfect way to get this high heat is with heavy metal and by that, a heavy cast iron skillet. So, save yourself the luxury prices and make the perfect restaurant steak at home.

Grilled Tomahawk Steaks

There is nothing more satisfying than one of these gigantic tomahawk rib eye steaks. Purchase two of these bad boys and you’ll be eating leftovers for a week. Usually, this amount serves about 4-5 people unless you’re surrounded by big eaters, then one each will have to do. The spice rub is delicious but simple. I recommend a reverse sear method for this recipe and the use of a charcoal grill. However, a gas grill will work well too.

Cumin and Chipotle Marinated Skirt Steaks

This flavorful skirt steak is marinated in a cumin-chipotle mixture and grilled hot and fast. While this recipe calls for skirt steak, you can certainly use flank or flat iron instead. Slice and serve meat in warm tortillas or over rice.

Grilled Sirloin Flap Steak

Also referred to as sirloin tips, the sirloin flap steak is another thin steak that works really well on the grill. I suggest marinating it for several hours and cooking it hot and fast on the grill. This cut of meat works well with any flavor combination and a rather economical cut. Give this one a try next time you’re in the grilling mood.

Aji Marinated Flat-Iron Tacos

Aji is a South American sauce prevalent in Columbia and Peru. Depending on the region, this sauce (or sometimes a chunky salsa) can range from mild to super hot. We’ll be using the milder version to marinate the flat-iron steaks for this recipe.
