So first things first, you want to make sure you’re starting with a good quality piece of steak. Going for the organic grass fed option is going to be your best bet. We love getting our meat from Butcherbox and today I’m going to be using their ribeye steak.
Next you want to make sure your steak is at room temperature and you want to remove all the moisture from it by patting it dry. This will allow for a delicious crust to develop when you sear it. I like to use a paper towel to do this and get all that extra moisture out.
Next you want to make sure you generously season your steak. I like to keep things simple and I stick to salt and freshly ground black pepper., but you’re more than welcome to use whatever seasonings you prefer. Make sure to generously season both sides. This is whats going to give your steak all that amazing flavor so don’t skimp out on this step.
Now that our steaks have been seasoned, its time to start searing them. You want to preheat your pan before adding the oil. This takes about 1-2 minutes depending on how high your heat is. Add your favorite cooking oil, here I’m using olive oil.
Make sure you don’t crowd your pan so that you ensure everything cooks evenly.
When you add your steak to the pan you want to hear a sizzling sound. This means your pan is hot enough and you are more likely to develop that nice crust we spoke about earlier. Just make sure your pan isn’t too hot where you burn your steak. I like to keep the heat at medium high to avoid any burning from happening.
Sear your steak for 2-3 minutes depending on how you like it cooked. Personally, I don’t like to see any blood in my steak so 3 minutes each side is usually perfect for that.
Once you flip your steak you want to add about a tablespoon of butter as well as fresh garlic and fresh herbs for some added flavor. This is completely optional but this really elevates your steak to the next level.
Start tilting your pan to the side and add the melted butter to the top of your steak to ensure you get that flavor soaked into your piece of steak.
Once the 3 minutes are up you’re going to turn off the heat and cover your steak so that it continues to cook. I like to let my piece of steak rest for about 5 minutes before slicing through it. This will allow for a juicy flavorful steak on the inside, and a crispy flavorful crust on the outside.
Last but not least remove your steak from the pan and slice it against the grain and enjoy! Its that simple guys! You don’t have to spend a fortune on a steak dinner at some fancy restaurant. Make this at home next time you’re in the mood for some steak. I hope you guys enjoyed this and until next time this is Malak signing off.
