foreman compact grill for cooking steaks?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 20, 2012 at 5:53 PM

has anyone done this with good results? i need a compact appliance for grilling steaks easily in my apartment, or, should i buy a portable electric burner and cook them in a cast-iron/enameled pan? i'm concerned that the foreman grill is designed to drain fat & moisture out, and i'm wondering how this will effect the tastes of my very rare ribeyes, NY strips, etc. obv i can just add the drippings back onto my plate, but i am unsure and don't want to waste my time/money.

please help quickly, i'm steak-deprived and am having to subsist on canned salmon and beef jerky.

please note: the answer is not to not do it. i need a legit viable solution for my situation.

I don't understand why you would have to buy a small appliance to cook a steak?

What do you use for the homemade Sous Vide?

If you cook steaks at home and they are not grass fed, dont feel bad about letting the fat run off.

Get a cast iron skillet. I always cooked amazing steaks by searing a steak on HIGH 2 minutes each side... throw into the oven immediately at 450 degrees... 2-3 mins for rare, 4-5 for med, 7 or longer for well done (depends on your temp and oven)

Wait... do you not even have a stove? or oven? You didn't really explain what your situation is.

Foreman grills are great for steaks. It's best to let them get as hot as possible, slick the surface with oil, then lay your steak on, but do not close that lid! 5-6 minutes per side usually gives me a nice medium rare steak.

I'd be concerned about those yummy juices as well. what about making a homemade Sous Vide?

I wouldn't do it because of the fat-drainage you mentioned and also because of the fact that it's covered with some sort of nasty non-stick surface.
