Something like . . . a steak dinner.
But many traditional ways to cook steak aren’t all that safe for beginner chefs: They’re either cooked on a fiery grill or start in a ripping-hot oiled skillet, where smoke and grease can intimidate even experienced home cooks. If only there was a way your kid could cook steak that’s not just easy and safe but also produces steakhouse-worthy meat.
But wait. There is. Enter: Pan-Seared Strip Steaks, a recipe featured in America’s Test Kitchen Kids’ newest cookbook, The Complete Cookbook for Young Scientists.
