My Worst Steak Ever

A man once said that Valentine is the worst day because you have to a ton of money for gifts, but I have to disagree.

Valentine is the worse day when you are making a romantic dinner, but you end up with steaks that are not flattering to the taste buds.

I was making steak and shrimp for babe, and the food came out bad. When I tell you that was a humbling experience, I was lost for words.

Part of the reason that I was lost for words is that my mouth was full. If you think that I am about to waste a 20 dollar steak, then you are crazy. Here are some of the issues with the food.

The steak and shrimp were too salty, the steak was overcooked and tough, and overall I was doing too much with the meal without using the proper techniques.

That day was years before I came out of retirement and made a savory steak recipe.

It is crazy because at one point I thought that making steaks just was not for me, but now look at me. I done made a whole garlic Parmesan flat iron steak recipe.

What Is Flat Iron Steak

Flat iron steak is a cut of a steer that at one point was deemed to be unfit to be considered steak.

We should add that to the list of things that did not age well. Flat iron steak is enjoyed by everyone. Also, you would look crazy by saying that a flat iron steak is unfit to be considered steak in today’s time.

Furthermore, when you add flavor to the flat iron steaks, it tastes that much better. That is why I made this garlic Parmesan steak recipe.

How To Cook A Flat Iron Steak

There are multiple ways to cook a steak, but my personal favorite is cooking a steak via cast-iron skillet.

I cook the steaks on all sides, but I make sure to not cook the steak for too long, I do not want to overcook the steak.

How To Grill Flat Iron Steak

If you prefer to grill your flat iron steak, then it is as simple as this. Heat your grill up, then place your steaks on the grill.

The time that it will take to cook the steaks will depend on how you like your steaks. Also, this rule still applies when you are making the garlic Parmesan steak recipe.
