today’s random recipe – simple, somewhat fancy steak dinner at home (for 1-2)

I cooked some pretty nice steak for dinner… Here to share with you… with the recipe.

 

– Simple plain salted steak.

You need: A pan, a spatchula (just found out it’s not a real word, no wonder I can’t spell it), steak (I used boneless rib eye), garlic, butter, salt (I used sea salt), a big plate (doesn’t need to be nice and fancy, big plates makes things look more classy), fork and knife…

 

optional sides: potato, vege (I boiled crown broccoli), nothing too strong

optional beverages: soda (I had root-beer), beer, red wine, preferably a fresh taste

 

Prepare: very thin layer of salt on both sides of the steak, chopped garlic, sliced garlic on plate.

 

Steps:

[fire power is suggestive to give you an idea; really depends on the stove; and honestly, I mostly follow my instincts]

1. Melt some butter in the pan; put fire on low

2. Throw some chopped garlic into the melted butter; put fire on medium

3. When the garlic pieces are semi-cooked, gather them together but slightly spread

4. put the steak (one at a time) on the garlic

5. put a cover on the pan; if want about medium done, put fire on medium; medium-well to well done on low fire.

6. check every once a while -> cook until the whole outside looks somewhat done

7. flip the steak. [the starting bottom side should look slightly burned, don’t worry, that’s the butter not the meat.]

8. cook for about 3 more minutes on high fire to get medium done. cook for longer on medium fire to get more well done. just turn on high fire and let it burn for a bit when about to finish.

9. place the steak on the plate

10. put the sides and other stuff on.

 

Eat:

DON’T eat the garlic that was used to flavored the steak from the very beginning; those are very unhealthy and probably burnt.

Cut a piece of steak to try it plain first.

Then eat with raw garlic, salt, or black pepper… your choice.

You can use your own sauce too.

 

This was mine. I ate the broccoli separately with hummus. not bad.

from left to right on the side: raw garlic, black pepper, salt.
