Most people love steaks, but these slabs of meat often lack the sophistication that other dishes (like duck in orange sauce) have. Giving a steak extra sizzle is one of the best ways to dress it up and enhance its taste; that’s why many restaurants today will serve steaks in a sizzling plate.

The Plate that Gives the Sizzle

Most sizzling plates need to be “seasoned”, particularly if they are made if cast iron. In Proper Use of a Sizzling Plate, Pinoy Kitchenette gives detailed instructions on how a sizzle plate can be prepared for successful use. The blog says, Before using the sizzling plate, it must be put directly to the burner of the stove to remove the carbon. Let the plate cool down before washing it with water, then wipe the plate using clean cloth. After drying the plate, it can now be used. After using the plate, wash using steel wool pads/scrubbers and soap. Rinse with water. After washing, wipe the plate using a clean dry cloth. After wiping with a clean cloth, wipe again using cooking oil to avoid rust during storage. You may also use a tissue to wipe off excess oil…”

Following these instructions will prevent your sizzle plate from rusting. These steps are to be followed each time the plate is used, but the effort is well worth it when you hear the sizzle as you serve an otherwise boring steak. [Read more…]
