For people who love to eat steak, they usually go to the restaurants to satisfy their craving. But what they don’t realize is that for the price they are paying at a steak restaurant for one piece of steak, they could buy about 4 pieces of raw steak from the grocery. All that they have to do then is to cook the steak on their own.
Now, for people who broil their steak using a conventional oven, they usually get good results when they broil or even roast one whole “roast” of beef. But what if you just want to eat a single slice or piece of steak and want it broiled? You certainly will waste a lot of electricity or gas if you use your conventional oven to broil that single piece. If you use your Cuisinart Toaster Oven/Broiler to broil your steak, then you are in for a treat. One, it takes less effort and time as compared to the big oven. Because pre-heating a bigger oven, your conventional oven, takes a longer time simply due to the fact that it is bigger. And another reason is that your Cuisinart Toaster Oven/Broiler would be easier to clean afterwards, and not to mention that it will taste better. Here are a few tips on how to broil steak with your Cuisinart Toaster Oven/Broiler
1. Preparing your Cuisinart Toaster Oven/Broiler – Pre-heat your Cuisinart Toaster Oven/Broiler and use the broil setting.
2. Lining the baking tray – Line the baking tray of your Cuisinart Toaster Oven/Broiler with foil.
3. Seasoning the steak – With your mortar and pestle, grind and crush peppercorns and some coarse salt. Then, get some extra virgin olive oil and rub your steak on both sides.
4. Pressing the mixture – The next thing to do would be to press your peppercorn and coarse salt mixture into your steak, this would ensure that the flavor will stick to the meat.
5. Cooking the steak – You could now put your steak on the prepared tray inside your Cuisinart Toaster Oven/Broiler . Broil each side of your steak for about 6 minutes if you want medium rare, 9 minutes for medium and about 12 minutes if you want your steak to be well done. If you measure the temperature of your meat, for a medium rare steak you will want your steak to reach 150 degrees Fahrenheit; for a medium steak the temperature should be 160 degrees Fahrenheit; and you would want your steak to reach 170 degrees Fahrenheit if you want your steak well done.
