How to Make a Steak Tender?

Pounding the meat before cooking and breaking down the fiber is the first way. The 2nd is the use of lemon juice in this marinade and its acidic nature to tenderize the steak.

How long should a steak marinate?

The steak should soak well in the marinade the minute the marinade is ready. I usually let them marinate overnight to get a full flavor; however, they should marinate for at least two hours.

How to tell when the steak is Cooked?

  • It really comes right down to how you like it done, to learn when a steak is done. However, remember that there’s a suggested safe temp from the USDA of 145 F to kill off any bacteria that could be harmful.
  • To know when the steak is done to your liking, always use the meat thermometer and insert the thermometer through the medial side of the steak horizontally and head to the middle of the thickest piece.

  • Bear in mind color isn’t always the easiest way to know doneness as some steaks are simply naturally lighter than others in the first place, and you don’t wish to cut into a steak while cooking, or you’ll lose a good amount of juices.

Here is a list of steak doneness by temperature:

  • Rare: 125 F – 130 F (not advised for food safety)
  • Medium rare: 130 F – 135 F
  • Medium: 135F – 145 F
  • Medium well: 145 F – 150 F
  • Well Done: 150 F – 160 F
