Hello spicyfood ! Cooking steak can be tricky, but once you get the hang of it, it's not that difficult. So, please elaborate on your method so we can diagnose the problem. I see you used tenderloin (Filet Mignon). That is a very tender cut and is best cooked very quickly on very high heat. Did you grill or cook in pan on stove? How do you like your steak cooked? Rare, Mid-rare, medium, med-well, well-done? That helps a lot too.
Yes, it is quite difficult. The basic problem is that it has no fat, so it dries out insanely quickly.Sorry I was gone for a while.
I cooked this steak on a pan at about a 6 or 7. For idk how many minutes because I wasn't sure how long/heat to cook such a thin steak. I did the touch test, it felt like it was medium going on medium well, but it was over cooked.
I wasn't even able to baste it. Let alone give it a good sear and throw it in the oven, It would of definitely over cooked then. Not sure if I'll buy another cut like this again but if I do I'm open to suggestions for the future. It seems like a really hard piece of meat to cook properly.
Why do you have to plant this seed in my brain when I'm working on only my second cup of coffee?
