How To Cook The Perfect Denver Steak

#GrillMaster Series: How To Cook The PERFECT Denver Steak Recipe

What Is Denver Steak?

If you have never heard of a Denver Steak, you are missing out. Based on our experience, this is one of the BEST steaks in the steer that offers a perfect balance of price, value and quality.

It's a relatively new cut of beef, born in 2009 as a result of a research project called "the Beef Checkoff".

The Denver steak is the fourth most tender muscle section of a heifer, steer, or cow. This cut is extremely juicy and full of flavor. The denver comes from the chuck of the steer. In Japanese restaurants it is commonly used for shabu shabu or yakiniku grilling. It was even featured in Wall street Journals 2019 "Grill Stars."

What Does Denver Steak Taste Like?

Denver steak has a rich, buttery and smooth flavor. Think of a NY strip mixed with a short rib. Our G1 Certified Denver is so popular that we spent some time developing a Domestic Wagyu version of the product and it is FANTASTIC (as seen in the video). Every now and then we also carry Japanese A5 Miyazaki Denver steaks.

In this step-by-step video, we finished the denver steak recipe with our Grill Master's Chimichurri sauce which we produce in-house.

How To Cook Denver Steak Step-By-Step Instructions

1. Open the steak and let it breathe and come to room temperature.

I did not do it in the video, but I do like to dry it up with a paper towel (optional).

2. Grab a cast Iron Skillet and get it HOT.

You will know is hot when you see a bit of smoke coming out of it.

3. Season the steak with salt, pepper or a rub.

This is a good steak with a TON of flavor. It doesn't require much seasoning.

4. Lower the heat to medium and cook for 2 minutes each side.

Remember this is guidance, the time will vary depending on the thickness of the steak or how you like to eat it. I myself like a good medium.

5. Let the steak rest for 5 minutes.

This will help make sure its nice and juicy.
