(Good Things Utah) Today in the Kitchen we have Chef Christian Gonzalez with Decadent Dishes making Pan Seared Steak, so delicious and yummy!


  • 1 cut of steak (whatever steak you choose. At least 6 oz.
  • ½ tbsp. vegetable oil
  • (As needed) Butter 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • 2 sprigs of thyme 
  • 3 cloves of garlic (crushed)


  • In a cast-iron skillet or a carbon steel pan, get it hot on medium-high heat almost to where it’s smoking.
  • Salt and pepper the steak on all sides and make sure that it’s decently coated.
  • Place oil in the hot pan and spread it around till the pan is coated with oil.
  • Place the steak in the pan carefully and sear one side for 2 ½ minutes. Make sure to place it slowly, You don’t want hot oil splashing everywhere!
  • After one side is seared you want to flip it to the other side and cook for another 3 minutes or so for a perfect medium-rare steak.
  • Add the butter, crushed garlic cloves, and thyme.
  • With a large stainless basting spoon, you’re going to be basting the steak with the hot butter until a nice crust is made from pouring over the hot butter over and over again.
  • Once cooked to your desired doneness let the steak rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting into it.
  • You want your steak to stay as juicy as possible and if you cut into it too early your steak will dry out if not eaten right away.  
  • ENJOY!
