How to make Surf and Turf?
You won’t believe how simple this recipe is. First, just combine all of your ingredients in a large bowl and coat with olive oil and your seasonings. Heat a large skillet or griddle to medium high heat and add nonstick spray. Add your seasoned ingredients to the hot skillet.
Try to align everything in one layer, if you can. Cook for three minutes, stir and then cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, or until the shrimp is pink and the veggies are fork tender.
How do I know when steak is done?
The cook time is determined by your preferred cut. The most reliable way to monitor your steak is to use a meat thermometer to ensure it has reached your preferred level of doneness. Here’s a simple guide to temperatures and doneness:
- Medium Rare: 135 degrees F or 57 degrees C
- Medium: 145 degrees F or 63 degrees C
- Medium Well: 150 degrees F or 66 degrees C
- Well: 160 degrees F or 71 degrees C
Tips for the Best Steak and Shrimp
