Do you want the perfect steak?! Try some Steak Aromatherapy….Follow these steps to produce a delicious, juicy steak!
No need to buy steak rubs, liberally season steak with kosher salt and course ground black pepper (I like to use a little garlic powder too).
RULE NUMBER ONE: Chill Out
Take your steaks out 20-30 minutes BEFORE you plan to cook them! A cold steak will cook unevenly.
RULE NUMBER TWO: HOT PAN!
Turn your cast iron pan on HIGH!
Once the pan begins to smoke, add olive oil!
Place the steaks in there pan, searing it for 30seconds on each side.
Now for the aromatics…….
Add crushed garlic (no need to peel)
Add thyme sprigs
Begin to add dabs of butter…..
RULE NUMBER THREE: GIVE IT SOME BASTE!
Use a spoon to baste the steaks frequently!
Flip the steaks every MINUTE in order to create even browning and cooking.
