Dinner is Severed: How to Cook a Perfect Steak in a Skillet

September 4, 2017

 

Don't let a piece of meat intimidate you and your ability to make perfectly crusted, juicy and lip-smackin' steak! 

 

The grill is not the only method for cooking red meat to perfection. In fact, I prefer cooking it over the stove top, in a skillet, and not in a cast iron one either (though that would be best). I find this method to be not just quicker and easier, but honestly because I love the perfect crispy crust it creates.

 

 

Perfectly Seared Steak

You'll need:

  • 1 - 1.5 inch steak

  • Salt and pepper

  • Olive oil

Let your meat rest at room temperature for about 30 minutes.

 

Generously season both sides and ends of the steak with salt and pepper.

 

Pour olive oil into a skillet and place over high heat. Let the pan heat up until it's screaming hot. Place the steak in the skillet and cook for 1 minute. Then, flip it over and cook for another minute. Do this once more for each side. This method is what gets a perfectly even crust around your steak.

 

Turn the heat down to medium and cook for another minute or two for a medium rare steak, For a more well done steak, cook for another 4 minutes; two on each side.

 

Let the meat rest for 10 minutes before slicing. 

 

Enjoy!
