This may be my third post on steak… And is because it’s so darn tasty. My wife and I were on vacation for the month and when we got back, no food except for steak. So, when in Rome. 🙂
This is a perfect recipe for the perfect steak. Start with a nice thick Porterhouse or T bone. This is a combo steak with a strip steak on one side and a filet on the other. These two are basically the same steak with one difference, the size of the filet. The porterhouse has a larger filet on it.
VERY IMPORTANT: Let it sit out for 20 minutes. Letting it get to room temp will allow for a more even cook. And get some salt & pepper on it.
Get your pan nice and hot. Place them in the pan and get a nice sear on them. Literally, this is the time sequence: 5 minutes each side, 2 minutes on the fat strip, and a 1 – 2 minute butter, thyme, and garlic baste. THAT’S IT! Acc this will deliver a great steak cook.
The lower steak could have used a moment longer but the sear is good.
Again, five minutes each side then two minutes on the fat side. Get it crispy. 🙂
Look at the sear on that!!! Yum!
Now all the while, I had mushrooms going.
That bad boy is ready to go now but let’s go ahead and add some shrooms…
One note: let the steak sit for five minutes to let the juices settle. And you will be having a nice med steak done to perfection!
