A few days ago, I was shopping with my friends, looking for a place to eat in the mall, and ordered the steak set recommended by the waiter. When I came up to see, it was a black pepper steak, a little vegetable, two slices of bread, and a bowl of bad soup. It actually costs more than a hundred, which is really expensive!This black pepper steak is not difficult to make. Cooking this black pepper steak at home can save at least two-thirds, and the black pepper sauce I made by myself is better than the restaurant’s. So the next day I asked a friend to come home again, and I personally made a black pepper steak for her to taste. As expected, my friend even praised it. This cooking skill can be opened!Steak, or steak, is a block of beef. It is one of the most common foods in Western cuisine. It is mainly fried and barbecued. In Europe, pork and lamb are the edible meat of the common people, while beef is the high-quality meat eaten by the nobles. Steaks are cooked and eaten with pepper and spices, and served on special occasions, which can demonstrate the noble status of the owner.Later, steaks were brought to China, and they have always been known for their high prices. It usually costs about 100 yuan to eat a steak, but making your own steak at home is relatively cheaper.To say that it is very convenient to buy steaks, whether in supermarkets or online shopping, and the price is relatively acceptable, but you must also pay attention to the distinction. Steaks can be divided into original cut steaks and restructured steaks according to different techniques. Cut steak refers to a whole piece of beef sirloin and sirloin that is directly cut and packaged without any pretreatment. It is fresh meat, bright and shiny in color, fat white or creamy yellow.The reorganized steak can also be called spliced steak, which is a conditioned meat product processed with the help of meat reorganization technology, usually with supplementary materials such as water, soy sauce, and seasoning. The reconstituted steak is dark red in color, and the fat is dull. It tastes softer and tender than the original cut steak, but the beef itself has a greater loss of flavor, so it is better to eat the original cut steak.Some friends said that steak is easy to buy, but they can’t make it. Today, I will share my favorite black pepper steak method. There is no need to buy the sauce. The black pepper sauce made by myself is more fragrant than the bought one. Eat freshly made, the sauce is rich, the steak is tender and juicy, and it is delicious with your favorite vegetables. It is highly recommended. Let’s see how I make black pepper steak!
