STEAK #SoulFoodSaturday

My regular diet consists of chicken, vegetables, fruits, sometimes fish, carbs and more chicken. Although I am usually happy with this set up, there are times when all I want is a big juicy steak. I always find myself disappointed at Steak Houses because unlike a lot of people, I don't like my steaks grilled. I prefer mine broiled in the oven or even fried in a very hot pan. I enjoy loads of butter when my steak is served. Oh yes, I go all out. I wish I could eat like this once a week, but realistically speaking, once a month is more like it. Here's what I do when I want a date with a gorgeous hunk of meat.


1 rib-eye steak (you choose the size)
salt and pepper, to taste
1 tsp. mustard
2 nobs of butter
8 sage leaves
Worcestershire sauce, to taste
1 clove garlic, sliced thinly

How to:

  • Make sure your steak is dry by patting both sides with paper towels. Otherwise, you won't get a nice crisp on the outside.
  • Rub mustard on both sides and add salt and pepper
  • Heat up your pan (Highest heat and make sure pan is super hot)
  • Add a nob of butter and a drop of olive oil so it does not burn.
  • When it is sizzling, put your steak in the pan and cook for about 2-2.5 minutes on each side. After the first side is done, add your garlic and sage and some Worcestershire sauce. Add second nob of butter if needed
  • Flip over again and add more Worcestershire sauce and remove from heat. 
  • Allow to rest before eating. If it's a big piece of steak, slice into strips and serve.
