10 minutes to Steak House Sizzle

So simple, So dreamy.

An absolute knock-out dinner every single time.

Now, let's rock this steak house steak in 10 minutes.

Are you ready to rrrrruuuuuuummmmmmmble?

Here's all you need--

Meat (I did 2-10-ounce NY strips today, they are on sale. 1 pound boneless rib eye easily feeds two --or even 4 people, get filet, strip whatever you prefer, but we usually get rib eye)
Vegetable Oil
Worcestershire Sauce
Butter (if you really want to "go there", if you're trying to watch the fat/calories then you really don't need it.

Oven Set to Broil
Ovenproof Skillet (this means Cast Iron or stainless steel with all steel handle)
Oven Mitt (I care about you! Take a second to check it for holes/worn places first)

Set oven to Broil and put your skillet in on the top rack as the oven heats.

Remove steak from packaging and pat dry with paper towels or a cloth. coat both sides of your steak with a drizzle of olive oil, a pinch of salt, a few grinds of pepper and a few splashes of Worcestershire Sauce.

Grab your oven mitt and take the skillet from the oven and place it on the stove on high. Place steak in HOT pan with tongs. It should sizzle and steam, cook for 30 seconds and then flip. Cook for 30 more sizzling seconds then return the skillet.

Back into the oven and broil for 2 minutes, using mitt and tongs flip the steak (a note from the wife of your friendly insurance agent--please make sure your kids are FAR away if you have them, there will be some serious heat coming from the oven). Broil 2 more minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven. Move the steak onto a cutting board and cover (foil, lid of a pan, bowl, anything will work) to let the meat rest for a few minutes before cutting. (if you're opting for butter drop about a tablespoonful on top before covering)

This will be the best darn steak you've ever made.

You'll impress your guests, your spouse, even yourself.

If you like a steak Medium-Well add a minute or so to your broil time. That's all you should need.

This and a salad is perfection and feels oh-so-fancy any night of the week.

Steak, roasted veggies, a potato and bread are the perfect home-cooked date night, Valentine's surprise for the man who has everything, celebratory meal or anniversary dinner.

Now, keep this in mind next time you need a date night, but don't want to go out. Keep this handy for Valentine's Day coming up and you're all set!

I hope you love cooking your steak this way! Have a wonderful day!


  1. Looks delicious! Now I need Joseph to convince Brad that he can eat a NY strip and be okay!

    1. Ha! ha! I just had to make the decision for Joseph. Like, I was at the store, it was on sale and I brought it home. Didn't tell him, just said we were having steak-then when he questioned my choice when we were about to eat I said "just try it and know I saved $28" and he liked it! That was that!!

  2. These look great! I generally only red meat on occasion, but I've been craving a steak fairly often this pregnancy. My husband loves it :)

    1. Thanks!! I wanted red meat too when I was pregnant with Jay! I hope y'all enjoy!
