Sizzlin’ Skillet Steak

I know sometimes there are recipes or foods that just kind of stay away from because of one reason or another. Well, steak was one of those for me as they always turned out tough when I cooked them.

Then there might come along a certain someone, aka Mr. Awesome, who really likes his steak. I tried to convince him that I was incapable of cooking steak but he refused to give up on me. He has made some really great steaks on the grill but I really don’t grill that much anymore either so I wasn’t interested in trying that method.

After a little trial and error and a few burnt steaks, I’ve finally come up with an almost foolproof method that works for me. Now I do use my cast iron skillet for this so I don’t know how well this will work if you use something other than cast iron. These usually turn our about medium rare so you may need to adjust the cooking times for your preferred level of doneness too.

If you cook the veggies before you cook your steak you get a whole new level of taste. This method usually results in a nice crust too. This is really so good that I’ve even impressed myself with this.

Sizzlin’ Skillet Steak

Ingredients:

  • 2-6 T. butter
  • 1 steak (we usually use ribeyes that at about 1 inch thick)
  • Garlic salt (we like Lawry’s Garlic Salt with Parsley and it looks really pretty too)
  • pepper
  • sliced onions, mushrooms, green peppers for toppings (optional)

Directions:

Season both sides of your steak with garlic salt and pepper.

Heat your cast iron skillet on medium-high heat.

Add 2-3 Tablespoons of butter and let melt.

Once melted, you can saute the vegetables until tender, if you choose. **

Remove the vegetables from the pan and set aside.

**If not using vegetables go directly to the next step but don’t add more butter to the pan.

Add another 2-3 Tablespoons of butter and let melt but don’t let it burn.

When the butter is melted and hot carefully place your steak in the pan.

Don’t touch it or move, just let it be for about 3-5 minutes.

Now carefully flip the steak.

Don’t touch it or move, just let it be for about 3-5 minutes.

Remove it from the heat and let it rest for another 3-5 minutes.

Serve with a simple salad, some baked potatoes, garlic bread, and top with sauteed veggies.

Enjoy!
