In Case You Need a Steak Recipe
It’s worth a try
I decided to have steak and had to come up with a different way from my usual of grilling, frying, and or broiling.
I ended up frying it, but different from my usual way.
I have a simple way that I have been using for years, whether frying, grilling, or broiling. I use Kosher salt, lemon pepper, and at the very end, a Worcestershire sauce for a deeper flavor.
I've been using Worcestershire sauce for a long time with steaks, chops, and even chicken sometimes because it always seems to add that perfect finishing touch to each meal.
Some chefs have told me not to do that, and others have agreed with my idea, so I stick with it. If you do the same, let me know in the comments section; if you don't, give it a try and let me know what you think.
I salt and pepper both sides letting the salt and pepper infuse the steak before placing it on the grill, frying pan, or broiler pan.
Everyone in the family seems to like it this way. Some ask for more Worcestershire sauce at the end, and I gladly apply it.
I prepared a few things before making this recipe. Remember, this is my idea, what you decide to do is fine, and it will work.
I softened some butter and added rosemary, freshly chopped garlic, lemon pepper, and fresh parsley. I then mixed that up and placed it in the fridge to harden.
I used a couple of pinches of lemon pepper and a dash of rosemary and chopped a small head of parsley.
I let the steak come to room temperature and then proceeded to heat the carbon steel pan with olive oil and a teaspoon of my seasoned butter to prepare the pan.
Once the pan was hot enough, I tossed the steak in and put a slab of the seasoned butter on top. I added two garlic cloves and a fresh rosemary bundle to marinate in the butter and drizzle over the steak as it cooked.
You want the pan hot enough so that it sizzles on contact when you drop in the steak. That way, you get a good crust built up on the steak.
Drizzling the butter mixture from the pan helps marinate the steak and helps in building the crust you are aiming to get.
Cook the steak to your preferred taste, and there you have it.
One More Thing
When the steak is done, take it out of the pan to rest before serving, then toss in a few heads of broccoli chopped to bite-size pieces in the pan that the steak was in. Fry them until cooked to your liking, and you have a fantastic meal for dinner.
P.S. We are moving, so I haven't set up a video shoot yet, but I promise to make this for you soon.
