There is nothing quite like a well-prepared steak! Their tenderness, flavor, and ability to soak up spices, are a real treat.

Just like fruits and vegetables, steaks should be purchased organic and from grass-fed cows because there is plenty of nutritional value in them. But if you are eating steak daily, whether to bulk up for fitness reasons or simply for nutritional purposes, then you’re going to get bored of it. Instead of eating the same tired steak recipe every night, try changing it up.

So, how do you make steak meals more exciting?

Put It In A Pie

Pies are a delectable dessert, but not all pies are sweet. One of the ways to get the most flavorful pieces of meat you have ever experienced, is to bake them inside a pie with a delicious sauce. This Scottish steak pie recipe is just one example of how delicious a steak pie can be. The savory sweetness of the gravy, the mix of textures with the flaky pastry, and the way that the meat becomes extra tender are worth the effort.

Add Mushrooms

When you’re looking for a little depth to your flavor, then there is nothing better than adding some mushrooms. While frying mushrooms to have with each forkful of steak can work just fine, if you really want their flavor to sink into the meat, then you’re going to need to make a mushroom gravy. This goes very well with chopped steak, which allows more surface area for the gravy to seep into. Ground sirloin steak is the best option for this, but it can also work as a topping on to other cuts like filet mignon.

Use Wagyu Instead

Wagyu beef is just another term for Kobe beef–we all know how delicious Kobe beef is. It is more expensive than other steaks, but if you’ve never tried it, then you will be surprised by how different wagyu is from regular beef.

The sweetness of this juicy type of steak is surprisingly delicious. Wagyu steak is cooked just like any other steak. If you want to go for something a little more authentic to its home country, then using a togarashi crust (which is effectively a mix of spices) can help you transport your taste buds to the other side of the world. Trust us, this steak is worth investing in at least once in your life!

The Takeaway

Some people consider it blasphemous to do anything with a steak other than to grill it. While others like to cook it no seasoning or sauce. Either way, steak is delicious–as is. But if you are bored of how you’ve been eating it, then try the tips above. Who knows, maybe you’ll find a new steak recipe that you actually enjoy!
