How to Cook Minute Steaks

Has anyone cooked minute steaks on the Egg?


  • I don't usually by them but I often pound out steaks for steak on a bun or salads. Just season and grill at 400* or so for a minute. That came out badly...sorry

    I haven't.  But I would think that a super thin steak would cook so fast that it wouldn't really pick up much flavor and smoke from a wood fire in a minute or two.  Unless you already have something else to cook, that's a lot of work to fire up the egg for.  Maybe a super-hot cast iron skillet on the stove would be more practical - dry the steaks, oil and season and try to get a Maillard reaction with brute force.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.  Love me or hate me, I am forum Marmite.

    i think they are different depending were you live, used to pan fry steakums, terrible. these were thin sliced steaks from an eyeround, tyson was selling the whole eyerounds sliced a little thinner than 1/4 inch slices. i used a bulgoki recipe marinade on them and a crying tiger sauce, high heat, less than a minute
