Beef steak from the EU is a fine , high-quality piece of dark red beef with fat veins. It is usually cut perpendicularly to muscle fibres. Beef steaks are usually grilled, fried or oven roasted. If well made, a steak is tender and juicy. The important thing to remember is that it requires short heat processing. Steaks should be fried on a very hot pan so that its juice does not leak, making the meat dry and tough. If you add a twig of rosemary, your beef smell wonderful. After removing your steak from the heat, wait for a few minutes before cutting and salt it immediately before serving.
