Fine Dining Steak Dinner at Home

You can make a steak dinner at home that will rival any fine dining restaurant you've visited. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a nice dinner out too. This is just a great way to serve a delicious meal for family and friends. Budget friendly too. Make them your honored guests. They'll appreciate the gesture.

There is a wonderful butcher close to where I live and they have the most beautiful high quality meat products at the Peach Stand. The meats are superior and cut fresh daily. You are going to want a high quality steak for this dinner. If you don't have a fresh butcher go to a grocer with a high end meat selection.

The steak I chose was a 2" sirloin. The piece of meat costs around twenty dollars but it's too big for one person to eat. I cut it into portions and can feed three to four people. That averages to around five dollars a person. Not a bad deal at all when keeping in mind how much such a meal would cost in a fine restaurant.

It's so easy to make too!

1 large 2" Sirloin Steak, cut into portions
1 tbs Vegetable Oil
2 tbs Kosher Salt
2 tbs Fresh Cracked Black Pepper

First thing, and this is a good rule for cooking all meat, set the steak out and let it come to room temperature.

Add kosher salt to a small bowl or ramekin. Add fresh cracked black pepper to a small bowl or ramekin. I do this because you'll be handling meat and it makes the process easier.

Brush each side of your steak pieces with vegetable oil.

Season each piece on all sides with the kosher salt and pepper.

Prepare your grill and heat on high.

Place steaks on the grill. For a piece this thick cook 3-4 minutes. Turn and let cook 3-4 minutes on the other side. Turn again on an angle, to get those lovely grill marks, for 2-3 minutes. Again for the other side. This is for medium to medium well. Adjust cooking times if you enjoy your steak more rare, or well done. 

Remove steaks from grill. Add a slice of butter, REAL butter, to the top of each piece of steak. Cover the plate with foil and let meat rest for 5 minutes. 

Ready to serve. You will not be disappointed.

Serve with a Baked Potato and side of Grilled Asparagus .
