How do you make parmesan crusted steak?

Here are the steps to follow when making parmesan crusted steak:

  • Prepare your grill and steak – heat your grill to about 225 degrees Fahrenheit, mix the Parmesan crust ingredients, and put them aside. Season the steaks using salt and pepper, or you can use beef seasoning.
  • Smoke the seasoned steaks – place your steaks on the hot grill grates and close the lid. Let them smoke and cook while you monitor their internal temperature. Ensure that when they are nearing 10 degrees internal temperature, you start preheating your oven and place a grill pan on top so that it can heat up.
  • Create a crust – remove your steaks from the grill and smear the parmesan mixture on top of each steak.
  • Sear the steaks – place them on the hot cast iron skillet or grill pan and put them in the oven. Leave them to cook for 3 minutes or until you see the cheese turning brown and melting. At this point, the steaks will be close to the final temperature you are targeting.
  • Leave them to rest – remove them from the oven and leave them to rest on the grill pan for about ten minutes. This is to allow the steak to reach its final temperature.

Factors to consider when making parmesan crusted steak

Before you get into the process of making parmesan crusted steak there are essential factors you need to know and consider. Here are three things that will make your process a success.

Invest in a good meat thermometer

You have to check the internal temperature of your steaks more often. This can only be simple if you have a good meat thermometer. Sometimes you might say that you can check the doneness of your meat using a stopwatch, this is another option but it is never accurate as using a meat thermometer. Also, a meat thermometer prevents you from undercooking or overcooking your steaks.

Keep a close eye on your steaks.

As closely monitoring the temperature matters, monitoring your steaks, especially in an oven, is essential. When broiling the steaks, stay close and remove them from the oven immediately after they start turning crispy. Also, you will need to remove them from the oven quickly after they are done because if you delay a little bit, they will burn and turn out to be something else.

Reverse searing

This is an essential tip because it enables your steaks to maintain a constant internal temperature of 10 degrees while they remain crusty.
