Try This! Tender Steak, Well Done?

I love steak but when I go to a restaurant and ask for it well done, I often get cringing responses from staff. A lot of people like the taste of blood. Well, I’m not one of those people. I don’t like the taste of blood and I don’t like the texture of under cooked meat. I’m sorry if I’ve offended anyone, this is not my intent. If you are like me, here is my solution to dry, overcooked steak.

What you will need:

Soy Sauce

Fresh Garlic

Garlic Powder



Porterhouse or other cut of Steak

Garlic Press


Slightly deep sheet pan


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees farenheit. Peel your garlic and put it through the garlic press. The amount of garlic is completely up to you. I personally love the taste of garlic and like lots of it but feel free to make your own determination.

Put the garlic on your cutting board and put a little salt on it and using your knife, grind your knife into the salt/garlic mixture until you get a paste (video coming soon).

Place the garlic paste into a small bowl. Add about a cup of soy sauce for 3 Porterhouse steaks and some fresh ground pepper and garlic powder to taste (pre-ground pepper is ok too). Feel free to omit the garlic powder if you are not a big garlic person.

Pour this mixture onto your rinsed and dried steaks that are already laying in your sheet pan.

Pop your pan of steaks into the oven for about 12 minutes or until the steaks are brown. Then take the steaks out of the oven and flip them over and put them back into the oven for around another 10 minutes or until they are a deep brown color and the liquid has mostly evaporated.

Make sure you don’t allow your steaks to become overcooked. You can tell if they are overcooked because they will be completely dried out and we don’t want that.

Take your steaks out of the oven and allow them to sit for 20 minutes so all the juices don’t run out when you cut into it.

Enjoy your steaks with the steak sauce of your choice, a potato and some broccoli are also great additions to this meal. Rolls with butter and a good Cab make it even better. Finish your meal with a great desert.
