Let's put the days of chewy steak and sad veggies behind us. Order quality beef steaks from Peter Bouchier, and discover a new world of culinary creations from cuts you already know and love.

What to look for in beef steak

Looking to buy beef steak? It's all about quality over quantity. To produce the best culinary experience, you want to choose the best possible cut of meat. We will usually recommend a balance of lean and fatty meat that features distinct muscle grain, some connective tissue, and a number of different muscle groups.

Lean cuts (indicative of low-working muscles in life) are often less flavourful than fattier ones, but are always more tender. Fattier cuts absorb more proteins and fat over the course of the life of the animal, leading to a better eating experience. In the end, it's best to try and test what steaks you like. It's all part of the process of becoming a master beef steak cook.

  • Beef eye fillet steaks come from the ribs of the cow near the backbone. This cut is positioned in such a way that it receives very little workout over the life of the animal, meaning that it is very succulent and incredibly tender.
  • Beef porterhouse steaks are a composite cut that can come with or without a bone. Expect hearty portions and larger, indulgent meals from this piece, with the same quality flavour as more expensive cuts.
  • Beef rib eye steaks span from ribs six through twelve of the cow. A popular cut for hot and fast cooking, rib eye features tender meat with excellent fat marbling, coming from an area of the cow that does not receive much work.
  • Beef scotch fillet steaks are a popular and flavourful cut that derives its quality from the fat and bone that surrounds the muscle. It's best cooked hot and fast to the desired doneness.
  • Beef rump steaks are a versatile cut from the rear of the cow that is entirely boneless. A cheaper cut, it's still very versatile, and can be used for slow cooking and roasting, as well as traditional grilling.

Frequently asked questions

How do I prepare beef steak before cooking?

This will depend on your cooking method and the cut of beef steak you have chosen.

  • Get the steak up to room temperature before cooking by leaving it on the counter for a while.
  • Apply seasoning or marinade at least one hour before cooking — olive oil, salt, and pepper at the bare minimum.
  • Tenderise cheaper cuts of meat with a meat tenderiser hammer, or natural enzyme powder.
  • When the meat reaches the desired internal temperature, let it rest.

What are some popular beef steak recipes?

Beef steak has been a staple of culinary traditions all around the world. Prime cuts of beef feature in all kinds of cuisines. Here are some of the most popular:

  • Steak and frites from Belgium
  • Sizzling Mongolian beef
  • Fillipino beef steak
  • American steakhouse-style rib eyes
  • Steak and chimichurri from Argentina
  • Ethiopian spiced steak
  • Mexican steak tacos
  • Steak au Poivre from France

How long do I cook beef steak for?

Again. this depends on the cut, size, and recipe you are following. Beef steaks come in various thicknesses, so there is no specific time frame for the perfect result. Thinner steaks will only need one or two minutes per side in a hot pan, while thicker cuts can be slow-cooked for hours.

When cooking steaks, the two most important things to consider are doneness and internal temperature.

  • The internal temperature of the steak is usually above 50 degrees Celcius to be considered 'cooked'. Anything less and the steak is considered extra rare, blue, or raw.
  • Doneness refers to how well cooked the interior of the steak is, and ranges from Rare (around 60 degrees Celcius) to Medium (around 65 degrees Celcius) to Well Done (over 75 degrees Celcius).

It's always best to test doneness and internal temperature with a thermometer, as colour of the meat is not always an accurate indication.

How long can I store beef steak in the fridge for?

Raw steak lasts in the fridge for between 3 and 5 days. If the item is vacuum sealed, it can potentially last for a few weeks. Always check the use-by and best before dates of your meat.

Cooked steak can last up to 5 days in the fridge if properly stored in an airtight container. If you are reheating cooked meat, be sure to check the steak for bacteria growth by inspecting it via sight and smell.

If stored properly, you can keep cooked steak in the freezer for between 6 and 12 months. Beyond this time, the steak will still be safe, it just won't be as nice to cook and eat.
