Why You’ll Love This Recipe
When it comes to grilling, there is nothing quite like sinking your teeth into a juicy, tender steak. But not all steaks are created equal. That’s where the Alpine Steak recipe comes in. Oh boy, let me tell you, this recipe is a game-changer!
First, let me tell you about the cut of meat we’ll be using. The butcher at Alpine Butcher is an expert when it comes to beef, and their Prime Rib steak is nothing short of heavenly. It’s perfectly marbled, meaning fat is interwoven in the meat fibers. This results in more flavor and a juicier steak.
The recipe starts with a simple sear in a cast iron skillet to lock in that succulent beefy flavor. Then we add in some onions and garlic for depth of flavor before adding the tomato sauce and Worcestershire sauce combo – this really gets my mouth watering.
But here’s the real magic: after that initial sear, we slow cook the steak to perfection in a flavorful broth for several hours until it’s fall-apart tender. You want that meat coming apart just from looking at it.
Trust me when I say this recipe brings out all the right flavors and textures of this amazing cut of beef, taking it to a whole new level of deliciousness. And if for some reason you can’t get your hands on prime rib or alpine butcher steak, then try substituting with round steak or venison steak for similar results.
So what are you waiting for? Get those grills fired up or those slow cookers ready because once you taste this alpine steak recipe, there will be no going back.
Ingredients for the Perfect Alpine Steak

The Recipe How-To
Are you ready to cook up an Alpine Steak Recipe like no other? Here’s how you can make it happen with just a few simple steps.
Prepare the Ingredients
First, gather up all the ingredients you need for this amazing recipe: beef alpine butcher steak, butter, onions, tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, brown sugar, tomato sauce, and of course, some salt and black pepper. Make sure to measure everything carefully, and cut your onions and tomatoes into bite-sized pieces.
Heat a cast-iron skillet or sous vide to high heat, and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Next, season your steak generously with salt and black pepper before putting it into the pan. Cook each side for at least two minutes until it sears. If using sous vide gear, place the seasoned steak in a vacuum-sealed bag and set the temperature between 54C – 57C for 2-3 hours.
Sauté the Onions and Tomatoes
Set the steak aside to rest for a bit while you cook up the onions and tomatoes in the same pan using another tablespoon of butter. Once they are slightly browned, add 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce followed by 2 cups of tomato sauce in the pan. Stir it until it blends perfectly, then put the steak back into the pan.
Finish It Up
Add another 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce on top of your Alpine Steak along with some Swiss cheese if desired. Cover it to melt down. Check to see when your steak has hit medium-rare in temperature which is approximately done in another four minutes; this should result in a quality tender steak.
Garnish it with seared steak tips. Take a nice picture of your creation; share it on social media with a hashtag #steaktiktok or #alpinebutcher for that extra love. Your steak recipe journey ends here, but don’t forget to experiment with diverse serving or pairing options.
Making this exquisite dish is things I like doing in life after tasting Alpine Steak or Beef Goulash from alpine cuisine restaurants or steakhouses. As many as cooks at home look after exciting new full recipe pages online from ‘Alpine Butcher’ for prime rib hacks or creamy beefsteak masterpieces, we are at leisure!
Substitutions and Variations
While the Alpine Steak recipe is an absolute crowd-pleaser, there are a few substitutions and variations you can try to suit your taste preferences or dietary restrictions.
For a healthier option, substitute olive oil for butter while searing the steak. You can also use leaner cuts like round steak or venison steak instead of prime rib or butcher’s steak for a leaner meal.
If you’re looking for a spicier kick, add some red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper to the seasoning blend. And if you want to add a gourmet touch, try adding a splash of cognac to the pan sauce.
For those who prefer a creamier sauce, whisk together a tablespoon of cornstarch with two tablespoons of water and add this mixture to the pan at the end of the cooking process. This will thicken up the sauce and give it a velvety texture.
You can also experiment with different sides or accompaniments to change up your meal. Serve your Alpine Steak with baked potatoes or roasted vegetables for a classic dinner, or try slicing it thin and making a delicious steak sandwich. Don’t be afraid to get creative!
Overall, the Alpine Steak recipe is versatile enough to cater to various taste preferences and dietary requirements. With these simple substitutions and variations, you can truly make this recipe your own and enjoy it in whichever way suits you best.
Serving and Pairing
Once you’ve cooked up a mouth-watering Alpine Steak, it’s important to serve it alongside the perfect pairing. In my opinion, red wine is the ultimate choice for this rich and flavorful dish. The tannins in red wine help to cut through the fat in the steak, making it the ideal complement.
When selecting a red wine to pair with your Alpine Steak, it’s important to choose one that’s bold enough to stand up to the flavors of the dish. I personally recommend a cabernet sauvignon or a merlot for their deep, fruity flavors and firm tannins.
If wine isn’t your thing, fear not! An ice-cold beer or a refreshing cocktail can work just as well. A dark and smoky beer such as a porter or stout is an excellent choice to balance out the richness of the steak. And if you’re looking for a cocktail, try a classic Old Fashioned with bourbon or cognac to bring out the flavors in the meat.
For sides, I love serving my Alpine Steak with roasted vegetables such as carrots and potatoes, and a simple green salad with tomatoes and onions. You could also try serving it alongside some creamy beefsteak or beef goulash for an extra dose of comfort food goodness.
No matter your personal taste preferences, there are countless options when it comes to serving and pairing your Alpine Steak. Whether you prefer traditional sides or something a little off-the-wall like a turducken or venison steak, let your creativity run wild and enjoy every bite of this alpine cuisine masterpiece.
Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating
Making a delicious alpine steak recipe takes time and effort, but fortunately, this recipe can be easily made ahead of time for a quick and easy meal. If you’re planning to serve the alpine steak at an upcoming dinner party, you can prepare it a day in advance and refrigerate it overnight. This will allow the flavors to develop and intensify, resulting in even more delicious steak.
When it comes to storing the leftover alpine steak, it’s essential to make sure it’s properly refrigerated. Place the cooked steak in an airtight container or wrap it tightly with plastic wrap to prevent any air from getting in. You can store the steak in the refrigerator for up to three days.
Reheating the alpine steak is also important for maintaining its quality and flavor. To reheat the steak, you can preheat your oven or grill to 350°F and place the steak on aluminum foil. Add a pat of butter on top of each piece of steak and bake it in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until heated through.
If you’re short on time and need to reheat quickly, you can also use a microwave. Put the steak on a microwave-safe plate and heat it on high for 30 seconds intervals until heated through. Be careful not to overcook the alpine steak as this could result in tough, chewy meat.
By following these make-ahead, storing, and reheating tips for the alpine steak recipe, you’ll be able to enjoy delicious steak whenever you want without sacrificing any of its quality or flavor. Topped with Swiss cheese or served alongside beef goulash or turducken, this recipe will surely be a hit among your friends and family!
Tips for Perfect Results
Are you looking to cook the perfect Alpine Steak Recipe? If so, I’ve got a few tips for you. As an assistant to a BBQ chef, I’ve learned some tricks that will make your steak stand out.
First, let’s talk about seasoning. The right balance of salt and pepper is key to bringing out the flavor in your steak. I suggest using coarse kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to add depth to your steak’s flavor.
Next, consider marinating your steak in Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar for a few hours before grilling. This will help tenderize the meat and give it a slightly sweet and tangy taste.
When it comes to cooking the steak itself, use a cast iron skillet or grill pan to sear it on both sides. Cook it low and slow until it reaches medium-rare, which is about 135°F (57°C). This method locks in the juices for a perfectly juicy steak.
Want to take things up a notch? Try incorporating some alpine flair into your dish! Use butter infused with alpine herbs or tomatoes and onions from the alpine region as toppings or sides.
For those who would rather not grill, slow-cooking sous vide method can also be considered for cooking perfect prime rib recipe. This method involves cooking the steak in a vacuum-sealed bag in a temperature-controlled water bath. It ensures even cooking throughout and results in a melt-in-your-mouth texture.
Lastly, let your steak rest for several minutes before slicing into it. This allows the juices to redistribute into the meat for added flavor and tenderness.
By following these tips, you’ll be well on your way to making an unforgettable Alpine Steak with that perfect medium-rare doneness.
Now that you know how to cook the perfect Alpine Steak recipe, it’s time to answer some of the frequently asked questions about this delicious dish. Here are some common queries and their answers that will help you troubleshoot any issues and make sure you get the best flavor out of your steak every time.
How do you make the most flavorful steak?
Grilling is considered the top method for cooking a steak, providing the most delicious and authentic taste. Although it may not be as scientific as sous-vide, it utilizes the natural juices and fats of the meat for added flavor.
How does Gordon Ramsay cook steak in cast iron skillet?
First, place a cast iron skillet on the grill over direct heat. Add some olive oil to the skillet and wait for it to heat up. Give your steak a light coating of SPG rub on both sides before placing it in the skillet. Let the steak sizzle for about a minute before flipping it over. Continue flipping the steak every minute.
How to cook thin steak medium-rare?
When cooking thin steaks that are less than 1 1/2 inches thick, it’s important to sear them properly to achieve a deep brown color. This process is quick and should take no more than 3 minutes per side for a medium-rare finish.
