How To Cook Steak Around The World

on June 30, 2019

Steak is much loved across the world. From Asia to Africa to North America, basically every corner of the globe has incorporated this delicious dinner option into their cuisine.

At Atlas Steakhouse, we serve delicious Mediterranean-style, naturally aged steaks. However, we also offer our customers the chance to buy uncooked steaks from our Raw Bar. With this option, you can enjoy cooking your steak anyway you’d like.

All our raw meats are top quality and aged for 21 days. They are available at the restaurant or for purchase online at https://www.atlassteak.com/raw-bar/

To give you some inspiration, here are a few creative ways to cook steak from around the world:

Argentina

As one of the world’s largest beef exporters, Argentina is all about the asado. Similar to a barbecue, this is the classic way to enjoy steak in the country. It is not uncommon for Argentinians to enjoy a steak asado up to 5 times per week!

All the meat is grilled over a charcoal fire – from excellent tenderloin cuts to the classic Argentinian “vacio” flank cut. Once cooked, the meat is usually sliced thin and topped with chimichurri. This sauce is a combination of parsley, garlic, oregano, red pepper, and olive oil.

Asados are best enjoyed with friends. The sliced steaks are served family style on the table with sides like grilled potatoes, grilled vegetables, and chorizo.

Korea

There was a time, not too long ago, when Korean BBQ was basically unheard of outside of Korea. Today though, it is becoming a world wide food trend.

The key to a good Korean BBQ is to start with an excellent piece of meat. A thinly sliced beef tenderloin or sirloin is a great option. You can also use marinated beef short ribs called “galbi” in Korean.

Once you select the right meat, the second must-have element is bulgogi sauce. This is the sauce that provides the classic Korean BBQ flavor – a combination of mild sweetness and nutty savory flavor. The sauce itself is made from a blend of soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, black pepper, sesame oil, and asian pear (or red apple).

Spain

While most people think of paella or tapas when they think Spain, the country actually has some of the best steak restaurants in the world. For a true, classic Spanish steak experience, order a chuletón.

This thick cut bone-in rib steak is sometimes the only meat on the menu at a traditional chuletón restaurant. The Spanish prefer the meat to come from older animals. It is then cooked over a wood fire with usually just a simple coarse salt rub.

The key is to cook the steaks over a lower heat for a longer time – usually around 15+ minutes for a just above rare steak. Due to the size of a typical chuletón cut, it is often served between two people with a choice of simple sides like – white asparagus with vinaigrette or roasted red piquillo peppers.
