Classic Grilled Steaks

Classic Grilled Steak

Room temperature steak slices.

Marinate with a liberal sprinkling of freshly ground salt and fresh black pepper as well as olive oil.

I placed my steak on a pan and marinated each side thoroughly.

You need a good amount of S&P as that gives your steaks flavour as well as a good ‘crust’

Heat your griddle pan until it’s really hot.

Sear the pieces on each side.

Thereafter allow to cook for 3 minutes on each side.

Remove from the pan and place on to a plate, cover with foil.

Continue until all your steaks are cooked.

You will be left with a thick crust of black in your pan, add 1/2 cup of water into the pan along with a big blob of your herbed butter and a dash of lemon juice.

You will be left with a flavourful jus.

Serve the jus poured over your steaks along with a blob of the herbed butter.

Herbed butter :

Softened butter

Chopped parsley

Some good quality whole grain mustard

Some crushed garlic

Mix together and place into a bowl.

Serve with a green salad and chips.

Can be served with a barbecue sauce of your choice but we don’t find the need.
