How to Make Cheap Steak Taste Expensive

1.Add herb butter.

Butter—especially herbed butter—is a simple way to improve steak. Herbed butter is simple, cheap, and elevates any steak dish.

2.Red wine butter sauce

Bordelaise sauce is another way butter may enhance meat. Dry red wine, butter, shallots, and demi-glace make the sauce. 

Delmonico steaks always get Bordelaise sauce. It elevates any steak's elegance and taste. An eight-dollar bottle of red wine for your sauce can make your steaks seem more pricey.

3.Use traditional salt and pepper.

Seasoning your steak before cooking, even with salt and pepper, is often forgotten.

A sufficient amount of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper applied immediately before cooking can enhance the natural tastes and create a tasty steak crust.

4.Use garlic

After cooking your steak, massage it with a garlic clove at your desired temperature. This simple tip adds flavor.

This doesn't have to replace seasoning or herbed butter, and combining ways can bring out the greatest flavors and make your inexpensive steak taste like steakhouse grade.

5.Marinade well

Marinating is one of the best techniques to make a steak taste good. The cut of steak will affect how and what you utilize.

Mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, and your preferred herbs and spices for marinades. Marinate the meat for several hours or overnight.
