Good beef will determine the flavor of the steak. The best cut of meat for making steak is the part cut from the top of the hip of the beef thigh, at the end of the back, also known as rump steak. This is where the animal moves less, so the meat is soft and very lean, and when processed, it will also be softer and sweeter.

5. Tips for checking the doneness of steak

4 levels of doneness of steak: 

  • Rare beef: cooking time is about 1 minute per side. 
  • Medium rare: cooking time is about 2 minutes per side. 
  • Medium: cooking time about 3 minutes per side 
  • Well done: cooking time is about 5 minutes per side. 

Rules for checking the left hand: 

  • Raw meat: open your palm, release your palm, press on the bulging belly of your hand under your thumb, the softness will be similar to the softness of raw meat.  
  • Rare meat: rare steak has a charred exterior, the piece of  meat is tender, and the meat inside is almost bright red. You can check by pressing the tip of your thumb against the tip of your finger and feeling that the rare meat will have the same softness as the meat under your thumb. 
  • Undercooked: this type of steak is charred on the outside, and the meat inside turns pink. Check by pressing the tip of your thumb against the tip of your middle finger, feeling the softness of the undercooked meat similar to the meat under your thumb. 
  • Well done: the steak has a dark brown charred exterior, the inside is still hot, the meat is more brown than pink. Check by pressing the tip of your thumb against the tip of your ring finger, feeling the tenderness of the meat, similar to the meat under your thumb. 
  • Well done: the steak is done when the meat fibers are completely brown, the outside is still slightly charred but not dry. Check by touching the tip of your thumb to the tip of your little finger, feeling the softness of the cooked beef similar to the quite firm meat under your thumb.

6. Notes on how to cook steak successfully

To be successful when making steak, you need to keep in mind the following notes: 

  • Choosing meat is extremely important in deciding whether the steak is tender or not.
  • If the beef is frozen, defrost it before marinating so it doesn't become crumbly and dry when cooked. At the same time, it is also easier to absorb spices when marinated. 
  • Let the pan get hot and then add oil to boil. When the oil boils, add the meat and pressure. By doing this, the beef will not be watery. 
  • When sauteing, press the meat down into the pan, making sure all sides are evenly exposed to the heat so the meat dries quickly. When the meat turns golden, lower the heat so the meat is cooked more thoroughly. 
  • Do not use a sharp knife and fork to puncture the outside, causing the meat juice to leak out, losing its natural sweetness. 
  • Let the beef rest for about 5 minutes before enjoying. This helps the muscle fibers in the meat relax, and retains water better.
