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)


  1. Pat the ribeye steak dry.
  2. Season with a single layer of salt and black pepper on both sides. 
  3. Let the steak sit for 1-1.5h to get to room temperature.
  4. Heat the frying pan to medium-high heat.
  5. Put 1 tsp of butter and 1 tsp of olive oil onto the pan.
  6. 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).
  7. Flip the steak and put steak seasoning on top. (I used the Club House La Grille Fiery Habanero and Roasted Garlic seasoning.)
  8. 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.)
  9. Take the steak off the pan and let it sit with aluminum foil covering it for 10 min.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
