Cast Iron Steak


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.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total: 20 minutes

Amount: 6 servings


  • 3 steaks (your choice of cut)
  • Onion powder
  • Fresh garlic
  • Olive oil
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. 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.
  2. Heat your skillet over medium heat with butter, cut garlic, and olive oil
  3. Rinse the salt off the steaks and pat dry
  4. Add salt, pepper, and onion powder to the steaks
  5. 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.
  6. Pull them off the skillet and let them sit for about 5 minutes and serve.
