Best way to cook steak on the stove

For this recipe, I chose to use a boneless Ribeye because they’re my absolute favorite steak. They have more fat marbled throughout the steak, which makes the steaks extra juicy and flavorful, in my opinion. Since they are heavier in fat, they aren’t the healthiest steak choice. If you’re looking for a slimmer cut, you’ll want to choose a tenderloin cut of steak. The tenderloin is more tender without all the fat, but also tends to be a little pricier.

How To Cook The Perfect Steak:

In order to get the best results from a cast iron steak recipe, you’ll want to make sure you take the steaks out of the fridge to let them come to room temperature before cooking. Season the steaks generously with salt and pepper and let come to room temperature.

Cast Iron Steak Recipe:

  • When cooking steak you’ll want to pick a heavy bottomed skillet, such as a cast iron skillet.
  • Use a combination of butter and extra virgin olive oil to coat the skillet.
  • Heat the cast iron skillet to a high temperature before adding the steaks to get a good sear.
  • DON’T overcrowd the steaks in the skillet to prevent steaming the steaks.
  • Use fresh herbs such as rosemary and thyme to give the steaks more flavor.

How Long To Cook Steak on Each Side:

There are a lot of things to consider when cooking the best steaks. How thick is your steak? Is your steak cold or room temperature? Do you prefer your steak rare, medium-rare, medium, medium-well, or well done?

The best no-fail way to get the correct temperature of your steak is with an instant read thermometer. Give the steaks at least a minute or two on each side at high heat to create a caramelized crust on the steak, then test for your internal temperature.

What Temperature is Steak Done?

  • For a RARE STEAK cook to 125 degrees F.
  • For a MEDIUM RARE STEAK cook to 135 degrees F.
  • For a MEDIUM STEAK cook to 145 degrees F.
  • For a MEDIUM WELL STEAK cook to 155 degrees F.
  • For a WELL DONE STEAK cook to 165 degrees F.

Cooking Steak Without a Thermometer

If you’re feeling confident enough to cook those steaks without a thermometer, just remember to err on the side of less done than what you’re going for. Once you cook the steak too long, you can’t go back and cook it less, but you can always put the undercooked steak back on the stove top to cook it longer.

  • Test the doneness of a steak by pressing the center of the steak with your finger.
  • The softer the steak, the more rare it is. If it’s firm to the touch, it’s more well done.

      You can definitely pop it in the oven to finish the cooking. The time will depend on how you like your steak cooked. Refer to the section in the blog post above for what temperature to finish the steak at.

    Do you have any good RESCIPES for individual flank steak? I’ve heard it must be marinated for 24 hours…help! I’ve never cooked steak.

    1. Shawn

      You can use my AWESOME Steak Marinade and then cook as described in this recipe. When cutting the flank steak, make sure you cut against the grain to ensure the most tender bite. Enjoy!
