On Saturday, I made steak. On my stove top, and without a cast iron.
Here’s how I made my steak:
- I took my t-bone cuts of steak and marinated with olive oil, Montreal Steak seasoning and a combination of garlic and ginger paste. I would suggest about one tablespoon of the steak seasoning for each pound of meat you are working with … I was working with five pounds of meat, and used around five tablespoons of the seasoning.
- Don’t poke holes in the meat. Let your steak marinate for about an hour.
- Then, in my skillet, I warmed up a thin layer of olive oil. On low to medium heat.
- Once the meat is in the skillet, I would recommend you not fuss with it or try to turn over too many times. Just let it sit and create a nice sizzling crust and cook halfway through before you flip them over.
Don’t press them down, don’t continuously flip them, etc.
End result? Perfectly delicious homemade steak. At a fraction of the cost.
