The Perfect Pan Seared Steak
The perfectly seared steak doesn’t have to be so complicated!
Pull a couple of Great Wisconsin Steak Company strip steaks from your freezer and place them in your refrigerator until thawed. This step helps the loin to absorb the cooked juices and enhances the overall flavor.
Once thawed, open the vacuum-sealed packaging, remove the strip steak and place on paper towels, patting the top and sides to remove all of the excess moisture. Change the paper towel if needed to ensure that moisture is off the underside as well. This will help to maximize the heat on the strip steak and reduce the cooking time so that you can get it just right.
Now you're ready to cook!
Start by liberally coating all sides of the strip steak with organic virgin olive oil and then turn your burner on high.
Once your pan is nice and hot, place the strip steak in the pan. Sear each edge for 1 minute, and then each side for 1 minute (4 minutes total). Remove and serve.
