How I Make the Perfect Steak


If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s this: a good steak is a lot of work.

A good steak is also worth the effort.

For those of you who are looking for a quick recipe that’s almost foolproof – because let’s face it, there’s no such thing as actually foolproof – have I got one for you. Follow me step by step, and you’ll get a nice, crisp, peppery crust on your steak.

With some bread, some wine, and a salad, and you’ll have an excellent dinner ready to go.

The first step is necessary. To make a good steak, you need to buy a good steak.

Go to your local butcher. You’ll want a guy you trust, one who raises the animals himself or gets his supply from a local farm. At the very least, find a store where the meat source is sustainable and humane. The meat tastes a lot better that way.

Some butchers even dry-age the meat a couple of weeks, and that can be a significant improvement in the taste.

A good steak starts with the best possible meat you can get. There is no getting around that.

If you have the right meat, you want to pick the right cut. Though any cut of meat that’s your favourite is going to work. You just need to be sure it’s a minimum of one inch thick because any less and you’ll have shorter cooking time.

If your meat is thinner than recommended, adjust the amount of time it cooks.

A little white fat around the edge of the cut is great! You’ll also want a bit of fat in the interior for marbling.

To dress up a steak, you need to use a good sauce. Over the years, I’ve found five options that are quick and easy, and go great with the meat. These are:

  • Creamy mustard shallot sauce
  • Roasted tomatillo salsa
  • Guacamole
  • Spring greens pesto
  • Costa Rican salsa

To start with, let the steak reach room temperature. Let it dry with some paper towels and sit for about half an hour on the counter. You need to do this to let it cook evenly.

Fire up the skillet! You want to do this 20 minutes before you start cooking.

Rub some oil on the meat. Just a little will go a long way and use your fingers to brush and massage it into the meat. Make sure it’s evenly spread. While you’re at it, add some salt and a bit of fresh pepper.

Flip the meat over and do the same to the other side.

Place the skillet over high heat. Sear that sweet baby over it for 30 seconds. If you’re doing everything right, the skillet should sizzle the moment the meat touches it. Flip to repeat the process for the other side.

After that, broil it for about two minutes in the oven. Flip it over and do the same on the other side. If you prefer the steak a little closer to medium over medium-rare, add another two minutes per side.

Finally, let the steak rest. Under a loose aluminium foil tent, that’ll be about five minutes.

Slice, serve, and enjoy!



It has been a while since I last posted on my blog mostly because I have been busy with work and other stuff. One thing hasn’t changed though. I still love my dogs.

That’s why whenever I go through a rough patch, I just go to Youtube and look for funny dog videos.

Now, if you are anything like me, funny dog videos will really raise your spirit. I mean, what’s cuter than a dog larger than its owner still acting like he’s a puppy that needs to be carried?

So if you are going through something bad in your life and if you feel like you are down in the dumps, go through this short list I made of the best and funniest dog videos on Youtube.

  1. The Dog who does not care. Box is small? I will fit!

2. How your dog can go from “Yes!” to “Wait, what?”

3. This is what happens when your dog does not know what to do or how to deal with something. Like some people I know.

4. Ever had that feeling that you just wanted out? That you want to escape? Then talk to this cute little thing.

5. I won’t need kids if this one can do all the drama.

Puppy Playtime

AH I am so so so excited. Why am i excited?
Well today I get to pick up my new dog, correction.. puppy

After travelling around the world solo, I realized that I needed a good companion by my side, who I can share experiences, emotions and energy with.

Since I am not really interested in a relationship or even being in the dating scene, I decided that a ‘Pal’ was going to be my best bet.

So here he is, everyone meet Rory… My Maltese Shitzu


It took me some time to find the perfect partner in playtime. However after finding a local breeder, meeting her and spending time with this little guy, I knew he was it.

I cant wait to share my life and love to this cute thing. T-Minus 4 hours and you will be home sweet home little guy.

My Time in The Big Apple

Yes, we know. It is hot outside. In any case, before you begin crying, recall this: You are in the most intriguing, most sensational, the most genuinely alive city on the planet. There is no motivation to spend your August crying beside the aeration and cooling system.

NewYork offers fifteen approaches to bark notwithstanding the pooch days of summer. In the wake of chugging a couple Butterbeers, we are speculating that you won’t mind in any case. In the meantime, acknowledge trivia, an outfit test, and a live house-sorting administration. Expelliarmus pride, action day drinking!

Winged serpent watercraft groups from crosswise over North America are attacking Flushing Meadows Park this month to vie for magnificence and prize cash amid a progression of rapid races in the city’s biggest lake.

Arrive to give a shout out to the groups, listen to Chinese music, wonder about Shaolin experts honing combative technique or appreciate heavenly global eats.

Sustenance: Hudson River Park’s Blues BBQ at Pier 16 on August 22 Since music and meat go together like peas and carrots, you won’t have any desire to miss this waterfront holiday.

Highlighting free live exhibitions from American soul and roots acts like Otis Taylor Band, Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens and Jarekus Singleton with BBQ available to be purchased from a city’s portion top. Thought a Blues BBQ implied eating blazed, Weber-barbecued chicken while ensuring your companion’s dreadful iPhone playlist.

Fractured Wrist

I have unfortunately fractured my wrist. The bone on fractured is the radius also known as the forearm bone. It isn’t a very major fracture, and we heal in next to no time at all.

I did this accident on my motorcycle a couple of weeks ago down south, and unfortunately I didn’t make a lot of progress in the event that I was competing in, as it was ended very shortly.

I now have a lovely green fiberglass cast on my arm for another couple of weeks and am very much looking forward to getting it off. I am lucky because I’m ambidextrous, and I have been able to adapt very well, and the cast has not slowed me down.

As you can see here, I am very capable and competent of topping without any major issues, so I’m able to look still after here on this blog and the other blogs that I have online.

My Skills- 3.

My Skills-

So last time I was telling you about me being multi-talented and here is secret why.

As I told you earlier that I had this idea of not wasting time so I talked to one of my friends and she suggested me to join university so that I can learn before I go and explore my world. This way I could have a brief idea of what I am capable of.

So joining this university was the best decision and thanks to Carla for introducing me to this. This University gave me full time and best learning to get the best possible education and now let me tell you how this all helped me.

After having a meeting with the Professionals of the university they suggested me to join the Interior designing course and thanks to their teaching method and easy course I was able to complete it before time and got a placement through their own connections.

Once I got fit in the job I thought of doing another course because I found that I could utilize the other course in the same job,

So here is a small list of education now have.
Degree in business, Certificate III in early childhood education and care, Certificate II in interior design, Speed reading, Certificate III in Assistant Dance Teaching.

Still continuing with other courses so that I can learn more. I have more plans, and I will keep on searching for the ultimate life and start travelling but a big thanks to the university that I could manage to keep my life on track.

Wait for more in my next blog.

My Passion and likes 2.

My Passion and likes-

I have always been interested in colours and colourful life, Like a normal girl I used to love colourful dresses and I was very good in arts classes, used to draw colourful houses on the sheet and put colours on my dress.

Since childhood it was my dream to draw Mona Lisa by myself and whenever I get the time I still do it with all my heart and trying to reach the perfection, meanwhile I grew up with kids who loved to play, sing and dance.

I started getting passionate about music and dance at the same time, the rhythm and harmony blew my mind ever since, I still sing and sing it to the children I take care of, also teach them how to dance on the daily basis, my whole day goes like I never did anything but instead I learn and teach and keep on learning again.

Well there is a secret for me being so multi-talented ( I am not making this up ) to know how just wait for my next blog.

Cate Incba
Hello Everyone my name is Cate Incba, I was born in England, but was raised in Perth WA after being immigrated. I have always been a naughty kid and used to disturb my parents a lot.

But somehow my parents always taught me to respect everyone and I always did that. Everyone liked me a candy of their eye. I am writing this blog to share my life experiences, one night I was looking at the stars thinking about life and my whole life passes through my thoughts.

I came to the conclusion that one day we all will be a part of the soil again.

So I decided that I would not wait for rest of my life to grow instead i will learn from this world and grow myself.

So with the new view towards life I am on my way to happiness. Keep yourself updated with my next blog in which I will be describing about my passion and way of living.
