Allen Said:What are the main ingredients chefs use to give gourmet steak its taste?
We Answered:The ingredient is bacteria.
Good restaurant beef is dry-aged for three to four weeks before it is ready to eat. It's placed in a room/walk-in at a controlled temperature(as I remember around 45 degrees Fahrenheit) and rotated for even aging.It develops a bit of growth, but this comes off either with vinegar or a sharp knife.
This gives the beef a deep, rich flavor that supermarket beef doesn't have.
Restaurants also can cook at higher temperatures than most home kitchens provide, and usually cook with radiant (broiling) heat. Some steakhouses do cook in hot rock salt, which again is available in a commercial kitchen.
Vincent Said:Gourmet steak recipe?
We Answered:LONDON BROIL
1 1/2 pounds top round, London Broil cut
(Whatever steak you have will be fine)
1 tablespoon monosodium glutamate (MSG)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons seasoning salt
1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons tarragon vinegar
Score top and bottom of meat with a 1 1/2 inch square pattern, and score the side. Sprinkle meat liberally with unseasoned meat tenderizer, then pierce with fork 1/8 inch apart and at least half-way through the meat on both sides. Sprinkle lightly with water, and rub in tenderizer. Place on a plate, cover, and set aside for an hour.
In a small bowl, mix together oil, lemon juice, seasoned salt, lemon pepper, garlic, parsley, and tarragon vinegar. Pour marinade over meat, reserving a portion to be used for brushing (Note: DO NOT mix the reserved marinade with the meat; set aside for later). Pour remaining marinade over meat, recover dish and refrigerate for three hours, turning every half hour.
Preheat grill for hot heat.
Lightly oil grate, and position it 2 inches above the coals. Place meat on grill, and cook for 5 minutes. Turn meat over, brush with marinade, and cook for another 5 minutes.
