Cook Your Own Restaurant-Style Steak at Home

I have always loved a big, juicy steak, and for years it has been my go-to meal choice if we are dining out. Nothing seemed to beat the flavor of a restaurant-style steak.

I used to believe it was only possible to have a good steak at a restaurant. Cooked to perfection with just a bit of pink in the middle; juicy, tender and flavorful. It seemed that every time I cooked steak at home it was dry, tough and lacked flavor.

I assumed it was because restaurants had access to better cuts of meat but it turns out that it was really because I was cooking the steaks completely wrong.

After a lot of trial and error at home, I finally landed on a recipe that closely mimics the quality of a restaurant-style steak.

The best part is that I can enjoy these steaks at a fraction of the cost! That means we can enjoy steak a whole lot more often.

Today, I am sharing with you the secret I recently learned that helped me to achieve delicious restaurant-style steaks right in my own kitchen. This is more of a method than a recipe but it is pretty fool-proof and will result in a perfectly cooked steak, every time!

RESTAURANT-STYLE STEAKS

Serves 2-4
Prep – 30 Minutes
Cook Time – 6-10 minutes

Special Equipment – Cast Iron Skillet; Meat Thermometer

  • 2 – 10-12 ounce ribeye steaks, 1-inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Steak seasoning (like Montreal Steak)

Bring your steaks to room temperature by setting out of the fridge about 30 minutes before preheating the oven.
Place your cast iron skillet in a cold oven and preheat it to the highest temperature. My oven goes to 550 degrees.
Season your steaks to your liking. I like to use Montreal Steak seasoning.
When the oven and your skillet reach temperature, remove the skillet from the oven and melt two tablespoons of butter in the skillet.
Add the steaks, seasoned side down and place the skillet into the hot oven.
Set the timer for three minutes.
Flip the steaks and cook for three minutes more.
Remove the skillet and test your steaks for desired doneness by using a meat thermometer.  Return the steaks to the oven for one minute increments until the desired temperature is reached.
Allow the steaks to rest at least ten minutes before serving.

These steaks are going to be so good you will rather eat at home than in a restaurant. If you want the full steak-house experience you may want to serve your steak with creamed spinach and a loaf of crusty bread
