How to Cook the Perfect Burgers?
To cook the perfect burger, you need the right patties, and there are many great alternatives out there. If you want to take your grilling game to the next level, order premium burgers from Seed to Table Direct Delivery, providing some of the most exclusive and flavorful meat on earth. That’s, without a doubt, a good way of making sure your burgers are more than delicious, heavenly!
As for the grill, cook burgers over high heat, whether on a charcoal grill or a thick-bottomed skillet and flip once. 3-4 minutes per side are all you need for a medium-well burger. Add a few more minutes for a well-done patty. Do not thaw frozen burgers; cook them straight from the freezer. Last but not least, let the burgers rest for a few minutes to allow the juices to redistribute. That’s how you get the perfect burgers every time!
How to Cook the Perfect Rib-eye?
The rib-eye is one of the most popular steaks, and for a good reason, the steak is fatty and tender, thick and intensely flavorful! There are many ways of cooking the marbled rib-eyes, but our favorite is in a cast-iron skillet over a high flame.
Make sure you let the rib-eye rest on the counter for a few minutes before cooking and allow it to rise to room temperature. If the steaks are too cold, you’ll have a tough time cooking them perfectly.
Rub the steaks with salt and pepper heavily, even more so if you’re working with thick pieces. Cook the steak and flip just once after 8-10 minutes. Make sure the skillet is steaming hot to get that gorgeous, caramelized crust! And here’s the secret, before pulling out the steaks, throw in a dab of butter and a rosemary sprig and baste the steak with the melted butter. You’ll love the results!
How to Defrost a Steak?
If you order steaks online, chances are they’ll arrive preserved in perfect condition but frozen solid. To defrost them, leave them in the refrigerator overnight. A 1-inch steak will take anywhere from 12 to 24 hours to thaw completely. You can also defrost a steak in a pot with cold water protecting it with a resealable bag, it might take between thirty minutes and three hours depending on the steak’s thickness.
Are you in a rush? Cooking a frozen steak is easy! Yes, it can be done. Sear the frozen steak on both sides in a skillet over high heat with extremely hot oil (90 seconds on each side). Preheat the oven at a low temperature of around 275°F and roast the steak on an oven rack to the desired temperature. It might take an hour, though, but it’s worth it. Use a meat thermometer to check the core temperature to the desired doneness according to this handy chart:
- Rare 120-130 °F
- Medium Rare 130-135 °F
- Medium 135-145 °F
- Well 145-155 °F
- Well Done 155-165 °F
