In my early 20s I worked in a fine dining Steakhouse and that not only taught me so much about cooking (i.e. my mad Risotto skills) but it taught me about appreciating a good steak! And what's funny is that when I met Matt something I asked him early on is how he gets his steak cooked.... I am FOR REAL, I asked. If he was to say Med-well I was going to rethink the whole thing. Seriously though. Luckily Matt and I are on the same page about a good steak :
1. You MUST get it cooked Med-rare
2. We will pay a large sum of money for a good steak dinner
We have always cooked steaks on the grill, Matt is great but lately we have seen the light.... Steaks on the stove top! And you guys literally I am very good at this! HAHA! Matt hates it when I say that but I cook a mean and perfectly cooked steak! The secret is???? It's easy! SO... I decided to share it with you.............
There is really only 2 things you need Butter and a HIGH quality steak. We go to this speciality grocer for steak night and you really need to make sure your filet is at LEAST 1 inch tall or this won't turn out! We get ours 6-8oz
Here is how:
Set your steak out to come to room temperature for about 30 minutes prior to cooking!
Season only with Salt, Pepper and Seasoned Salt
Put in a LARGE pad of butter and set your pan at Med-High..... You need it screaming HOT!
Place steaks in pan.........
This night we were easy peasy.... we just had a baked potato with Ranch sour cream and our steak! But look at that perfection! The hot pan gave it a flavorful crust and the inside perfectly soft!
Steakhouse Salad night 2!
