This is by far my favorite way to cook steak. I’ve been experimenting a while now with different ways to cook steak and seasoning it. This is the tastiest and best way I found to cook steak. It does take some time though, but the benefits of such a juicy and tender steak is worth it! As an added bonus

Best Way To Cook Steak Instructions

Ingredients:

  • 2 steaks 
  • 2 TBSP Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Oven Safe Pan Or Pot
  • 1/2 cup of dry red wine
  • 2 tbsp of butter

Prep time: 60 minutes

Total Time: 75 minutes

Best Way To Cook Steaks Step By Step Instructions

  1. Start by seasoning the steaks all over, by rubbing in a generous helping of salt and pepper.
  2. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to each steak and gently rub the olive oil in.
  3. Let the steak stand at room temperature for 1  hour to allow seasoning to set in.
  4. Once the steaks have been seasoned for 1 hour, turn the oven on to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.  
  5. Once the oven has warmed to that temperature, put your oven safe pan (or pot, I used a Le Cruset in my case) on the stove top and begin warming it on a very high heat. We want the pan to be very very warm!
  6. Sear the steak for 1.5 minutes on each side in the hot pan.
  7. Transfer the pan into the oven on the middle rack of the oven and cook for 5 minutes.
  8. Remove the pan from the oven and place it on the stovetop and remove the steaks from the pan and let rest on a plate for 5 minutes.
  9. In the pan used for steaks, add 1/2 cup of red wine and the 2 tbsps of butter, scraping up all of the bits left over from the steak. Keep cooking the sauce until it has reduced to about 1/3rd cup (about 2 minutes).
  10. Serve steaks with the red wine sauce on top. You will have a very juicy steak with the middle red and the outsides crisp and flavorful. 

And that is the best way I found to cook steak in a pan! 

It’s very simple and delivers all of the flavor and tenderness you want in a steak. You can pair the steak with mashed potatoes and a veggie of your choice—he red wine sauce makes for a perfect gravy for the potatoes as well as the steak. But experiment with which combination of sides please you best—that’s the fun part of cooking: trying every which way of cooking something and seeing what you can discover.
