Stannard Meal Preparation
Defrosting Time: 20 minutes, but not always necessary
Meal Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Preparing meal the day after delivery
If the steak is frozen and you are planning to prepare and serve this recipe the day after delivery, then place the package of steaks in the refrigerator to defrost overnight and through the next day.
Preparing meal the day of delivery
If the steak is frozen and you are planning to prepare and serve this recipe the day of delivery remove the steaks from the refrigerator two hours before serving. Remove and set aside white butcher paper surrounding the cryovac packaging. Do not remove the steaks from this plastic packaging. With the meat still inside the plastic packaging place it into a bowl in the sink. Run cold water into the bowl, covering steaks and let sit for 10 min. Refill with fresh cold water. Repeat 3 times, every 10 minutes or until the steaks are soft and ready to cook.
From here, follow the recipe below to prepare the main dish of the Stannard dinner.
Oven proof cast iron or stainless steel skillet OR a sauté skillet and a baking dish
Stove top sauté skillet
Main Dish 10 oz steak per person
NY Strip Steak
Sugar Bob’s Finest Smoked Maple Syrup
Halladay’s Maple Habanero Seasoning
Ariston Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Before cooking check the oven to make sure one shelf sits in the middle for even cooking, then set temperature to 400°F to pre-heat.
Spread the butcher paper on the counter with the shiny side up. Then spoon out two teaspoons of maple habanero seasoning onto the paper. Cut open the end of cryovac packaging and remove steak. Pat the steak dry and place it in the seasonings. Rub seasoning into both sides of the steak. Repeat this process for each additional portion of steak.
Allow the steak to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes while you prep ingredients for side dishes. Then, when the time is up add two teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt to the pan and preheat over medium-high heat. When hot, place the steaks in the pan to sear for 2 to 3 minutes on a side, or until slightly blackened. Place pan if it is oven proof in 400° oven or transfer to pre-warmed baking dish and bake for 12 minutes. After 12 minutes try press test.
To determine whether the steak is raw (135°F), medium (145°F), and well done (160°F) steak try the press test. Here’s how it works. First make a fist. Meat that is well done feels like the surface between your thumb and forefinger when you clench your fist. If you clench lightly, the surface will have more give. This is what medium steak feels like when you press. When you make a relaxed fist the area between your thumb and forefinger is soft, which is how rare steak feels when pressed.
To do the press test use a pot holder and pull out the oven rack not too far, but far enough to reach in safely. Press in the middle of the steak with the tips of two fingers to feel how well done your steak is. In addition to this handy test, Kingdom Provisions recommends using a meat thermometer for safety and accuracy.
When your steak is ready remove it from the oven and allow it to rest for 3 minutes under foil provided before serving.
This recipe is for one but scaling up recipes is easy since dinner baskets come with the right amount of ingredients for the number of guests you are serving.
Use the white butcher paper shiny side up for meat preparation and the checker board paper to prep ingredients for side dishes.
