How to cook the Perfect Steak
Good cooking is many times more about technique than recipes and the best dishes are often the simplest to prepare. A properly cooked steak is a perfect example of this. With just a few ingredients and a single pan, you can cook a steak that’s as delicious as one you’d order in a high-end steakhouse.
2 Garlic Gloves (slightly smashes and unpeeled)
1 bunch Thyme
2 tablespoons Butter
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
Take steak outside the fridge 1 hour before cooking to bring it to room temperature.
Pat steak dry with a paper towel.
Season steak generously with salt and pepper.
(Optional) If the steak is really thick, place the steak in the oven over minimum heat for 3-5 minutes.
Heat a pan on high heat and wait until it's super hot.
Add in olive oil.
Place steak on its side (side of the fat) and let the fat brown.
Flip steak on one side, do not touch it and cook until side is deep-brown color (~3 minutes).
Flip steak to the other side, do not touch it and cook until side is deep-brown color (~3 minutes).
During the last minute, add in the garlic, thyme and butter and with a spoon continuously base the steak.
Let the steak rest in aluminum foil for 3-5 minutes before cutting and serving.
