How do I cook a steak in a nonstick pan?
    #15202458 - 10/09/11 10:59 PM (9 years, 6 months ago)

So I rarely cook steaks.  Its almost always during the summer on a bbq when people are drinking and smoking and I just cook them with salt and pepper till I take them off.  Methods pretty simple.

So what about cooking inside with a nonstick pan?  I used to have a nice cast iron pan that had to be 30+ years old, but I gave it to my sister cuz I'm cool like that.  Anyways I heard your not supposed to get non stick to hot so how does the sear work this way? Also my cheap ass pans have plastic handles so their not going in the oven.

meh. skip the nonstick and just throw it in the oven on the rack under a broiler. put a cooking pan under the rack to cech the drippings.

broilers are just inverted grills.

You can get them hot, but they don't have the reservoir of heat that a cast iron pan has. So you can cook a rare steak or a medium rare steak, but you tend to run into problems getting it right when you want something better done than that in a cheap ass non stick pan as the temperature of the pan drops a lot when you put the steak on and when you turn it over.

I let the meat sit out at room temp for 40 minutes prior to cooking which I think helped.  Wish I had a camera cuz them bitches turned out phenomenal!!

a good way for me is to use a bit of olive oil in the pan with some seasoned salt, rosemary, and mint it tastes delicious guys, for real! I do prefer the broiler method though i looove a crispy steak, not dry just crunchy on the outside

I've never had a problem with getting a good sear and crust using a non-stick pan. I make sure I pat the steak with paper towels to soak up any excess moisture and set on the counter to take the chill off. Sprinkle the steak with kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper. I'll pre-heat my pan, on a low-medium heat, which takes around 5 minutes. Pour in the oil and check the temp with an infrared thermometer and drop the steak when it reacher 350F. 3-4 minutes on each side, touching the steak only to flip it. It doesn't beat a charcoal grilled steak, but it's a good compromise.

Frying steaks is noob town.

broiling them works way better.

the only excuse is if you are searing them, which actually REDUCES moisture contrary to popular myth.

you can sear in a broiler.

my advice is; just dont use a frying pan.

i donno man, i'd say there is no method of cooking a steak that's truly better than any other, just depends watcha want. personally, i always prefer a grill. grilling food is so delicious because of the "Milliard Reaction", which is essentially the caramelization of the browned parts of the food and the augmentation of the proteins that touch the bars of the grill. mmmm. science.

but second to that i fucking love me a seared steak. rare. if you;re usuing a non-stick pan oil isnt necessary but its great for transferring heat to the steak, locking in juicy goodness, and adding a bit of that pan-fried flavor. use olive oil; vegetable oil is.... eh. put the flame on medium-high and drizzle about a tablespoon of oil. you'll know the pan is at the perfect heat when you tilt the skillet and see nice little ripples in the oil as it flows from one side to the other. and it starts to look more clear. if you want it cooked a little more thoroughly (and if you want to avoid oil from splashing while it cooks) cover it.

salt. white pepper. rare. never ever use steak sauce. if you want it really fucking tasty pile some crumbled blue cheese on top and pour a little balsamic dressing/vinegar over it and broil it until the cheese starts to turn golden. yeah.... and throw some thick-cut peppered bacon on it too.

I've never tried a boiled steak (as in steak dropped into a pot of boiling water), but I don't imagine that the product is very good compared to a grilled steak.

wow yeah, why would you do that? If you have a good piece of meat, you want to indulge in that beauty, not take away from it. Grilling and similar methods caramelize that outside, leaving the insides untouched, at least for me eating it as raw as possible, with a touch of salt.

If you're going to be cooking a steak inside in a non-stick pan, cast iron would be ideal. I would avoid stainless, not for any reason in particular. Get the pan as hot as you can, depending on the cut of meat, I wouldn't add any oil or anything to the pan, apply salt, cook accordingly. If you're the type of person who enjoys their steak a bit more well done, you may think about covering it.

PS. searing does not "lock in juiciness" thats a common myth.

why would it?

a sear isnt waterproof, i dont know where people got that idea.

thats actually not true, searing does help to hold in moisture but it requires a broiler that runs around 1500-1800degrees. I don't know how you define 'locking in juices'.

:facepalm: You bitches need to learn the value of a cast iron pan---> fo sho.

Put the steak on a plate, season to taste with le' salt and le' pepper and and coat both sides in olive oil (don't add oil directly to the pan).  Throw it directly in a cast iron pan on medium high heat, cook for the length desired.

Oh, and if you don't take the time to dry the meat, it won't brown properly.

BITCHES!

searing is for flavor and texture, im not saying dont do it if you want, im saying that claiming it locks in juice has no factual basis.

its superstition, searing dries out the surface so technically its more likely to reduce overall juiciness.

again, searing doesnt create a waterproof seal to lock in juices, its for flavor and texture only.

meh, oil your pan, helps caramelize the meat and keep moisture behind the delicious crust. then yes, let it cool in what juices/oils are in the pan and it will re-absorb some of them as well.

its not just the oil itself, but the fact that the oil helps sink the heat
