Best Way To Reheat Meat [Guaranteed]

On the off chance that you thought reheating steak made it dry, you weren't right! This is what you have got to know.

That extra rib eye from the night before is looking quite enticing, correct? You don't need all that delectable meat to go to squander! So, how might you warm the steak again without it tasting tasteless and dry? 

Fortunately, we have the appropriate solutions. Here are three basic techniques you simply need to attempt.

Technique 1: Put it in the microwave

It might appear to be an odd decision; however, listen to us! In case you're lacking time and need to warm steak, the microwave could be the best approach.

The main thing you need to know here is that this strategy will dry out the meat except if you utilize a clever little hack!

Firstly, put the steak in a deep, microwavable dish.

 Next, (and here is the smart part) pour over some sauce or meat juices. Doing this will keep the meat tender and make it more delectable than before. Wrap plastic wrap over the dish and put it in the microwave. 

Cook it at a medium temperature (maximize temperature will dry your steak within secs) for a 30-seconds duration, flipping the meat in between.

You should just need to do this a couple of times for the ideal outcome! Delightfully delicate.

Technique 2: Heat it in the oven

Spoiler: This is an excellent method to heat steak if you’ve got some time. It would take approximately 30 minutes to get right; however, the meat’s delicious flavor will be worth the time.

Before you begin, you must put the oven on and set the temperature to around 250ºF. Then, you need to get a baking tray (or a pizza pan, like this one from Taste of Home's new line of bakeware) and put a tough wire rack inside it. (Doing so will imply that the meat cooks entirely on the two sides!) Next, place the steak on the rack.

When you are sure that the oven has warmed up, put the tray in it. You need to leave the steaks to cook for about 20-30 minutes, checking them frequently. All you want is for the meat to not dry out. 

Various steaks will require a varying set of time to warm thoroughly, relying upon their thickness, so lookout. 

While the steak is cooking, you might like to make a delicious gravy—this one is foolproof—or peppercorn sauce. Pouring some tasty sauce over the steak will make it even more delicious.

Technique 3: Add some meat stock

Anticipating utilizing a skillet (cookware is included in our new line, as well) to reheat steak? We may have the right tip for you.

Adding some meat broth to the skillet just before you add the meat could be the solution. (Note: You do not have to utilize any oil if your skillet is non-stick!)

Let the stock to warm up for a second or two till it begins to simply bubble a bit. Now, add the meat and watch it cook perfectly. It should just take one minute! 

The mystery element of the stock gives the meat additional tenderness. That implies the steak will not dry out or get chewy. There can be nothing better!

Make sure you utilize the leftovers—steak or something else—while they are still fine! This guide will surely help you keep on track.
