How To Cook The Perfect Steak


1 ¼ inch steak -  This allows you to get a beautiful crust on the outside without overcooking the steak (ribeye, porterhouse, striploin)
1 tablespoon of cooking oil - high smoke point is necessary, I like using avocado oil or vegetable oil
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1 sprig of thyme
1 sprig of rosemary
3 whole cloves of garlic
Kosher salt or coarse sea salt - to taste
Fresh cracked pepper - to taste


    • Remove the steak from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature, about 30-40 minutes
    • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F
    • Pat the steak down with a paper towel to remove all of the moisture
    • Heat your stainless steel pan on medium-high heat and allow the pan to get hot
    • While your pan is heating up, season both sides of your steak with salt and pepper
    • Add a little bit cooking oil to the pan and then place the steak into the pan

    • Add the butter into the pan. Once the butter is bubbling and melted add in the thyme, rosemary and garlic
    • Using a spoon baste the steak with the butter continuously
    • Once the seared side of the steak has a golden crust to it (about 2 minutes) flip the steak and continue to baste it with the butter
    • After the other side of the steak is seared for another 2 - 3 minutes place the steak in the oven for about 5 minutes. Cook until the steak reaches 120 degrees F. for medium rare

  • When the steak is cooked, place it onto a cutting board and allow it to rest for at least 5 minutes. 
  • Cut the steak against the grain and serve
