Pan Fried Steak
Sometimes there’s nothing better than eating a good steak…yummy! I used to think that making steaks at home can’t compare to the steaks at steak restaurants like The Keg until I pan-fried some ribeye steak recently. I might have lucked out this time, but it was probably the cut of meat, which makes a huge difference. If you know of a good butcher, the meat you get from them is probably best, but in this case, we got our ribeye steak (2 for $20) from Metro and were pleasantly surprised.
Hopefully, this blog post will convince you to try making steak at home. My recipe for the ribeye steak I pan-fried recently is below. It is nothing fancy and is probably very similar to other steak recipes. To be honest, I also documented it so I remember how I made it the next time I want to pan fry steak at home. 😂
Level: Easy | Time: 20 min | Servings: 1
- 1 ribeye steak (or whichever cut of steak you prefer)
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1/2 tsp of black pepper
- 1 tsp of butter
- 1 tsp of olive oil
- Steak seasoning (to taste)
- Pat the ribeye steak dry.
- Season with a single layer of salt and black pepper on both sides.
- Let the steak sit for 1-1.5h to get to room temperature.
- Heat the frying pan to medium-high heat.
- Put 1 tsp of butter and 1 tsp of olive oil onto the pan.
- When the butter is melted, put the ribeye steak onto the pan and sear the first side for 4 min (leave it on for longer if your steak is more than an inch thick).
- Flip the steak and put steak seasoning on top. (I used the Club House La Grille Fiery Habanero and Roasted Garlic seasoning.)
- Sear the second side for 4 min as well if you want a medium-rare steak. (If you prefer your steak more well done, cook it for longer.)
- Take the steak off the pan and let it sit with aluminum foil covering it for 10 min.
- Serve and enjoy!
