Pan Seared Steak

This Pan Seared Steak Recipe is guaranteed to become one of your favorite ways to prepare steak! It’s so easy and incredibly delicious.

Pan Seared Steak Ingredients

2 boneless New York strip or rib-eye steaks trimmed 

1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil divided 

Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper 

2 tablespoons butter for serving

2 cloves garlic minced 

2 sprigs fresh thyme or rosemary finely chopped 

1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary finely chopped

Pan Seared Steak Directions

Pat steaks dry with a paper towel. Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat for several minutes, until the pan begins to smoke. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan and brush on the remaining oil on the steak. Generously season the steak with salt and pepper. Carefully place the steaks in the hot pan and allow to sear (undisturbed) on the first side until crust forms. About 3-4 minutes. Using tongs, flip the steaks over and continue to cook until desired doneness.

Once the steaks are almost done, reduce heat to low. Add butter, garlic, and herbs to the pan. Use an oven mitt or dish towel, grasp the pan handle and tilt and swirl the pan to allow butter to melt. Use a spoon to drizzle and baste steaks until juicy on both sides (flip after 30 seconds) for about a minute. 

Transfer the steaks to a cutting board or platter, tent loosely with foil and let rest 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with roasted asparagus and sautéed mushrooms (if desired) along with any remaining sauce.

This pan seared steak recipe is so delicious. Pair it with a wedge salad and roasted Brussel sprouts for a low-carb, keto meal.
