Cooking the Perfect Steak

with Bruce Aidells
Perfectly cook a variety of steaks and recreate favorite sides and sauces with tips and techniques from America’s meat guru, Bruce Aidells!

Make the most of every steak with essential techniques from  award-winning cookbook author and  founder of Aidells Sausage Company, Bruce Aidells. First, learn how to consider marbling, smell and color when selecting good beef. Then, discover techniques you’ll wonder how you lived without as you cook favorite steak cuts, from rib eye and fillet mignon to porterhouse and skirt steak. Next, Bruce will show you how to get the best results using three key cooking methods: pan-broiling, pan-sautéing and grilling. You’ll even get tips for gauging doneness, so that every bite is perfectly cooked and delicious. Plus, enjoy recipes for classic steakhouse sides, rubs and sauces to complement the steaks you’ll cook in this class.

"I really enjoyed taking Bruce Aidells' class about cooking the perfect steak. I thought I knew how to grill meat pretty well, but I honestly learned so many techniques that have improved my cooking. I feel much more comfortable buying cuts of meat in the grocery store because I know what to look for and can now distinguish quality meats. Bruce teaches a lot about measuring doneness and how to cook to perfection. I'm confident I will never overcook a steak again! I really enjoyed this class and would recommend it to anyone looking to improve their cooking skills."
