Cooking Class and a Steak Lunch with my Student
She said she really enjoys eating steak but at the restaurants it is often very expensive (40,000 won) for a little piece of steak.
Cooking steak seemed to be a mystery to her. In our cooking class. I heated up a pan until it was smoking hot. I salted the steak with sea salt and then seared the steak on the pan, flipped it, added potatoes and stuck it in the oven until it was cooked. I don't add pepper until after because it will burn.
Then I taught her the secret to a good steak: butter. I sauteed a bit of garlic and then mixed this into butter and put the butter into the freezer. Just as I served the steak, I added a dollop of butter. It melted on the steak.
She really enjoyed it and said she would try doing the recipe for her family.
