This one’s for all you meat lovers out there.
I rarely buy or eat steak, but when I do, I do it right.
As in, mostly rare.
I have Chris and his family to thank for getting me to love eating steak like this. To me, there’s just no other way now.
Here’s how to do it:
Coat the steak on both sides with lemon pepper seasoning. Let them rest for 20 minutes to warm up to room temperature. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. (Test to see if it’s hot by splashing a drop of water into the pan — if it sizzles, you’re ready to go.) Place the steaks into the hot pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, turning once, until there is no pink showing on the outside of the steaks. If you don’t want it so rare, lower the heat down to medium and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side, or until the steak has reached your desired level of done-ness. Thicker cuts will take longer. Thin cuts won’t take long at all.
