When its cold and 20 miles an hour winds outside and you cannot use your grill but you want to have a juicy steak for dinner, what to do? I found the simple way to achieve that prefect, Smokey, delicious, juicy and flavorful steak is to have it prepare in sauté pan on the stovetop…Just a little butter or olive oil, room temperature meat and any of your favorite combination of spices and you have an easy meal on your hands in no time.
I am a steak lover plain and simple and if I could I would eat it every single day so as my 11 years old granddaughter, she inherited the love of beef from all of us, but once or twice a month is good enough for us…
I made this steak for both of us when she was over last night, for her I paired this juicy steak with sautéed green beans in olive oil, toped it with garlic powder, sea salt and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
For my plate I kept it simple with fresh cut tomatoes, drizzle of olive oil, seat salt and black pepper, this will be a delicious meal if paired with my Tomato Salad
Five to six minutes on each side and you have the perfect medium well delicious steak for dinner.
1 1/2 LB top beef chuck steak at room temperature
2 tbsp. olive oil
3 tbsp. grill steak seasoning
1/2 tbsp. sea salt
1/2 tbsp. black pepper
In a small bowl, combine grill steak seasoning, salt and pepper.
On a medium high heat add olive oil to sauté pan, add half the seasoning on too one side and cook seasoned side down for four to six minutes depending on the thickness of your steak.
Add the rest of the seasoning on top, when the time is up and delicious crust built on to the first side, turn the steak and cook on the second side for another three to four minutes, again that depending on the thickness of your steak… The second side always cooks faster and does not require as much time as the first side… that’s if you prefer your steak on the medium well side, that’s my preferred doneness for beef… for a well done steak leave it to cook a little longer but not more than one minute on each side…. But if you prefer a rare steak don’t cook it :):) just kidding, cook it for two minutes on each side.
Remove from the pan on too a plate and let it rest for about five to ten minutes…slice and serve.
***what to do in the next ten minutes while you are waiting on your steak to rest while everything else is ready? clean that stove because it will requires you to clean it after this meal :)….But its soooooooooo worth it!!! OR just use a splatter pan cover, but I was too exited that I forgot I had one…. So I cleaned my stove :):):)***
