Aging steak in your fridge
Place steak on a wire rack on a tray, and put it on a shelf in your fridge so nothing touches the steak.
After a few days the surface of the steak will start to dry and the color darken slightly.
You can leave the steaks in the fridge up to a week
Set the oven to 375F (180C). Select a pan that you can put in the oven, ideally one for which you can remove the handle, and put it on the heat.
Cook the steak in a hot pan for 2-4 minutes (2=Rare 4=Medium Well). I like to liberally salt the uncooked surface.
Turn and cook the other side in a hot pan for 2-4 minutes (2=Rare 4=Medium Well)
Put the pan in the oven for 4 minutes to finish cooking.
Let the cooked steak rest on a wooden board for 4 minutes … do not cut into it until it has rested.
OK now you can cut it, and you shouldn’t lose the juices.
