Stop Calling That Juicy Steak ‘Bloody’ – Here’s What It Really Is

  Stop Calling That Juicy Steak ‘Bloody’ – Here’s What It Really Is You can be forgiven if you think that the pinkish liquid that makes a rare steak “juicy” is blood. We tend to call a rare steak “bloody,” after all, so it’s not exactly a stretch to think that the red liquid that drips out of your steak when you cut into it is blood. It’s also a great way to make people squeamish about eating a steak that’s anything less than well-done: “I don’t want to be eating all that blood!” Well, we have news for you: Even a completely raw steak contains no blood.

"I think a lot of people say, 'Well, how do you get a steak like you have in your restaurant at home,'" says Chef Charlie. "And I think, it's not that hard! But there are some thing your have to do.” Including…

1. ALWAYS BLOT YOUR MEAT

"You got to dry it out well before you sear it," says Charlie.

Rach adds, "Any protein — not just steak — should be dry when it goes onto a very hot surface."

How To Grill Every Cut Of Steak

  How To Grill Every Cut Of Steak From skirt steak to filet mignon, we gotchu.First, you need to know about direct and indirect heat. Direct heat means you're cooking something directly over the flame (whether it be gas or charcoal). It's what gives grilled meat its beautiful char. Indirect heat means you're cooking the food to the side of the heat source. For steak, you're mainly dealing with direct heat. (Indirect heat is better for slow-cooking foods like ribs.

Also, you want your meat ice cold! "The reason you want your beef to be ice cold is that in order to achieve a rare steak with a highly seared exterior, you want the interior to heat up as slowly as possible while the outside becomes caramelized," Charlie explains.

You don't want to mess with that texture!

2. NEVER SALT TOO SOON

"When you season it," says Charlie, "season it just before it goes into the pan. This is another mistake that people make. They season it ahead of time, and then it starts to weep (i.e. it seeps water)."

3. DON'T OVERCROWD THE PAN

"For instance, if you are searing six 12-ounce steaks, you will have to either use two pans — three in each," says Charlie. "Or you can sear them three at a time in one pan and find a warm holding place, possibly your oven or on your stove to rest the first three. Crowding the pan results in bringing the temperature way down and creates a stewing affect as opposed to searing — not good!"
