Recipe Notes

  • For even more flavor, add a shake or two or Worcestershire sauce.
  • The leftovers are great for steak sandwiches.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Season the steak with salt and pepper. When the olive oil is hot, add the steak in a single layer and cook until well seared, about 2 minutes. Flip them over and cook about 2 minutes more. (You may have to do this in batches depending on the size of your pan.) Remove the steak to a plate. 
  2. Add the butter to the skillet and reduce the heat to medium. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper flakes, if using, and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. 
  3. Add the steak back to the pan and stir to coat with the garlic butter. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.

Loved the writing style, well done!

These were amazing and easy! I made these with caramelized butternut squash. A perfect dinner for a cold rainy night! The only thing I did differently was to use Avocado oil instead of olive oil. These were fried at a very high temperature and Avocado oil has a much higher smoke point than olive oil.
