Hello y’all! Today’s recipe is for steak. When I cook steak, I don’t want to pull the grill out and do all the things. So, I opt to us my cast iron skillet. These are a god sent they had such amazing flavor and the more you use them the better they get. Anyways so when I cook steak for my fiancé and myself, I use the cast iron skillet. This recipe is very simple I am aware you can get way into the weeds when it comes to preparing steaks, but I believe simple is better. If you have a good cut of meat you don’t need to over season them. Besides I want to enjoy the favor of the steak not mask it.
Cast Iron Steak
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total: 20 minutes
Amount: 6 servings
3 steaks (your choice of cut)
First prep your steaks, coat them in salt and let them sit for 5 minutes. This step allows the salt to break down the meat and it will make them tender.
Heat your skillet over medium heat with butter, cut garlic, and olive oil
Rinse the salt off the steaks and pat dry
Add salt, pepper, and onion powder to the steaks
Cook steaks to desired temp (rare, medium, etc.). Very important use a spoon to drench your steaks with the butter and olive oil that is in the skillet. This will keep them moist and tender.
Pull them off the skillet and let them sit for about 5 minutes and serve.

If y’all didn’t know I used to be a barista and one of my fiancés favorite things I make is coffee and tea. Well, he tends to have a hard time sleeping and I tend to have a hard time getting GOOD sleep. I am sure we are not the only people in the world with these troubles. So, I thought I’d share my sleepy time tea recipe so you can give it try. I can only speak for us, but it works. The quality of sleep I get when I drink this tea is out of this world. It is a very simple and easy recipe.
Start boiling your water.
Prep your cup with honey and lemon juice.
Get your tea bags.
Steep for 4 minutes.
Once it is done steeping remove tea bags and enjoy your way to a wonderful night of sleep!
