How to Cook a Perfect Pan Fried Steak

Using an outdoor grill is one of the most popular ways to prepare a great steak. However, you can actually prepare a pretty fabulous piece of meat with the help of your iron skillet.

Naturally, pan frying your steak can be challenging – but it doesn’t have to be. YouTube user Marsh Rat has put together this video to help us all make the perfect pan fried steak.

You’ll need to start your cooking adventure with a hot cast iron skillet. You want to get the skillet as hot as you possibly can. At this point, you will add a little bit of oil and wait until it starts smoking before you add in the steak.

Depending on the size of the steak, you should cook each side about three and a half minutes. This will give you a steak that is medium. Now, you will want to place your steak on a piece of aluminum foil and make a tent over the top. Then, you can let the steak rest for about 10 minutes before you enjoy it.

This is a great way to prepare a steak when you don’t have a way to grill outside. You can cook it this way during the winter or even when you are looking to enjoy a quick meal. If you prefer a different temperature for your steak, you can easily adjust your cooking times to get the perfect coloring.

So, the next time you are craving a great steak, but it’s too cold to go grill one, keep this recipe in mind. You may just find your new favorite way to prepare a delicious steak.
