Stove Top Steaks

We don't have a grill.  3rd story apartments don't tend to be big fans of grills.  I had to learn how to cook a steak on the stove top.  It's really pretty easy and the steaks taste pretty good!

Stove Top Steak:

2 New York Strip Steaks (or whatever steak you want)
2 tablespoons of steak seasoning (I use Montreal Steak)
2 tablespoons of butter
1 tablespoon of worcestershire sauce
1 large cast iron skillet

Take the steak out of the refrigerator about 15 minutes before you're ready to cook it. Sprinkle your favorite steak seasoning on both sides of the steak.

Heat a large cast iron skillet until its very hot, it must be cast iron.  Melt the butter in the pan and add the worcestershire sauce.  Once the butter is melted add the steaks.  They should sizzle when they touch the pan.  Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side form medium-ish and longer if that's what you want.


  1. Ah, apartment living! I have been trying to learn to convert a lot of my recipes to smaller scale apartment style cooking. :)

  2. I have too, it doesn't always work (which is why I have 1/2 a pan of lasagna sitting in the fridge right now).
