Crown City Cooking | Seared Steak

The only steak recipe you’ll ever need!

Ingredients

  • Two NY Strip steaks
  • Butter
  • Salt & Pepper

 

Directions

  1. Heat a large pan on high, you want to get the pan searing hot before adding the steaks. A cast iron pan is ideal but for all of us budget chefs, a regular every day cooking pan will work.
  2. Add butter to the pan, let it melt down a bit but not completely.
  3. Place the steaks in the pan, adding salt and pepper to the exposed side. Let the steaks rest for eight to ten minutes before flipping if you enjoy a medium cut. From experience I can tell you cooking steaks for five or less minutes will leave you with a mostly raw chunk of beef. It’ll cook the outer layer a bit so that there is a dark, charred line running across the top but it’s a rareness only a power business person like Gordon Gecko would appreciate. For well steaks leave them in the pan for twelve to fifteen minutes on each side.
  4. Once you’ve reached your desired pinkness, remove the steaks and let rest for five minutes. Here’s a tip I learned from Alton Brown: place a smaller plate upside down on your serving plate and rest the steaks on that. That way the juices and blood run off and your dinner plate will be mostly dry when it comes time to eat.

 

Here’s a photo of my finished product. Since I like a medium cut steak, the sear ended up a nice brownish color. I unfortunately didn’t heed Alton Brown’s advice but that’s okay, the juices added a bit of flavor to the instant potatoes that accompanied these babies.

 

I hope you enjoy this recipe, post your results in the comment section!

Crown City Cooking | Roast and Potatoes

The perfect family dinner. The hardest part will be peeling the potatoes.

 

The set-up at the CCC Compound

 

Ingredients:

Chuck Roast

Yukon Gold or Russet Potatoes (skinned and quartered)

Salt and Pepper

Directions:

  1. Season the chuck roast with salt and pepper. You could marinate the chuck roast in the fridge for an hour to 24 hours but results are still delicious if you are making this meal same day and have no time for marinades.

  2. Wash the potatoes under a cold tap, dry and peel.

  3. Slice the potatoes diagonally into thick disks. Slice two more times until you’re left with four smaller pieces.

  4. Pour a small amount of water into a baking pan, just enough to cover the surface of the pan. Line the pan with the quartered potatoes and finally set your roast in the center of the pan.

  5. Cover the meat with aluminum foil and bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 350-375 degrees. Technically speaking, it’s 20 minutes per pound but if you buy your groceries like the everyday person, this will usually work out to cooking for an hour to 80 minutes.

  6. At the 30 minute mark, remove the foil and continue to cook for an additional 30 minutes. The roast should come out medium rare with a light pink color. If you enjoy a well-done roast, cook for an additional 15 to 20 minutes at 375 degrees.

  7. There you have it Roast and Potatoes. Enjoy!

    Finished product

Mastermind Team’s Robcast 226 | Pickled Dicks

Robcast’s hosts, Rob Lee & Dann D, are trapped in a world of weird crime, strange food and off-color remarks.

… And on the seventh day, God said “Let there be podcasts!” 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

In this week’s all new episode, Rob Lee & Dann D stare madness in the face as they critique and re-purpose the KFC Skinwich during our Crown City Cook segment. Rob & Dann have a great idea on their hands on how to make this sandwich better. What do you think? Should fried chicken skin be used as lettuce? Is Rob’s sandwich nothing more than a Chik-Fil-A sandwich – if you know Rob he loves Chik-Fil-A and always looks for excuses to talk about it.

Rob enjoys pickled and fermented foods like Kimchi and Kombucha but not Pickled Dicks. Those are not on the menu at #mtrthenetwork.

Rob discusses the joys of puppy parenthood before melting Dann’s face with an all new round of New Challenger where stories include Super Gonorrhea, BBQ Becky in Oakland and a Brooklyn Haircut gone wrong. Dead-ass.

Whether you listen now or download and listen later, you don’t want to miss the episode that proves why you never bring a gun to an alligator fight.

MTR The Network blesses you with the #godsofpod, Rob Lee & Dann D, every week.
