Claim Your Steak
Choose your cut
Consider a thick, juicy tenderloin for the ultimate melt-in-your-mouth experience. Or choose a New York Strip—the classic steakhouse steak—with a tender, yet firm bite. Can’t decide? The T-bone is like two steaks in one, with a New York Strip on one side of the bone, and a tenderloin on the other. And the ribeye offers the juiciest boneless steak option. Talk to your Haggen butcher to find the cut that’s right for you. We’ll even custom cut to your liking.
Salt and fresh ground pepper are all you really need for a truly delicious steak. There are some enticing rubs that can add all sorts of flavors to your meat, but you can’t go wrong with just salt and fresh ground pepper. Plan to use a light, neutral oil on the skillet or grill, like canola or grapeseed oil.
The Steak House Method
SEASON – Heat a heavy skillet over medium high heat until hot. Add a light coating of oil to the skillet, and season steak with salt and fresh ground pepper.
SEAR – Place steaks in hot skillet and sear for 4 minutes, turning once. If steak sticks to skillet, it’s not ready to turn. Wait until it releases on its own.
COOK – Place skillet in 350° oven for 10-20 minutes, depending on desired doneness. Turn once halfway through cooking time. Remove from oven when preferred internal temperature is reached. (See chart below)
REST – Remove steak from skillet and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand for 5–10 minutes. The steak will continue to cook, and the temperature will rise about 5°.
