Cooking Steak On The Stovetop

  • Heat a pan on high heat. Then add the steaks.
  • Cook on each side for 3-4 minutes or until the outside of the steak is brown.
  • Flip and finish cooking on the other side until the steaks reach the desired temperature.

Tips

  • Marinate the steak for a minimum of 2 hours. The longer you marinate the better as this will enhance the flavors.
  • After removing the steaks from the fridge after marinating let them sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Cold steaks don’t seem to cook evenly.
  • Then after cooking the steaks you will want to also let them rest for 3-5 minutes before cutting into them.
  • Always start cooking the steaks on high heat. This will ensure the outside will be browned and it will keep in the flavor and juices.
  • Use a meat thermometer to check when your steaks are done cooking. You don’t want to overcook the steaks.
