Steak using the Fast-Flip Method

    7 minutes

    The fast-flip method of cooking steak, or flipping repeatedly every 30 seconds, gives great results every time. And the steak cooks 30% faster, to boot!

    Serves: 1 

    • 1 steak, such as ribeye or sirloin, at room temperature
    • salt to taste
    • high-heat cooking oil

    Preparation:3min  ›  Cook:4min  ›  Ready in:7min 

    1. Preheat a heavy fry pan (cast iron is ideal) over medium high heat. Pat the steak dry with paper towels on both sides. Season generously with salt.
    2. When the pan is hot, add a generous drizzle of oil. Add steak and cook for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, flip to the other side and cook for 30 seconds, then flip again. Continue flipping, cooking 30 seconds each side.
    3. When the steak has developed a brown crust, after 3 to 4 minutes of total cooking for a 2.5cm steak, remove from pan and check for doneness. Use a meat thermometer and follow these temperatures according to your preference: 54 degrees C = Rare; 60 degrees C = Medium rare; 68 degrees C = Medium; 73 degrees C = Well done.
    4. When your steak is at the desired temperature, remove from pan and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

    This is a great way to cook steaks. I used top sirloin steaks and added freshly ground black pepper and the sauce from the Minute Steaks with Barbeque Butter Sauce recipe. They were the best steaks I have ever had!  -  04 Mar 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Perfect cooking option for me as I don't like using the broiler. Followed instructions closely and after about 4 1/2 minutes the 1 inch think steak measured 170 degrees. After resting for 4 minutes the result was a perfect medium rare steak, my favorite. You might want to play with the timing a bit but definitely give this recipe a try.  -  14 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
