William Pence, executive chef at Carvers Steaks & Chops house:
Get the temperature right
Carvers cooks its medium rare inch thick New York strip steaks 4 minutes on each side in its commercial top broiler. Pence said home cooks can achieve great results use a outdoor grill set to 400 or 500 degrees or oven on the broiler setting. Steaks should not be pressed and only flipped once. If using the oven, Pence recommended pan searing the steak first for two minutes on each sides first.
Pence said people often under season beef. He suggested using pepper and Lawry’s or a similar seasoning salt. Let the steak sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes before cooking.
Give it a rest
For the best results, let your steak rest five minutes before cutting into it.
