Campire Cookin’: Savory Skillet Steak

Things needed:

  • Steak of choice

  • 2-3 Tablespoons of butter

  • 3 Sprigs of Thyme

  • Sea Salt 

  • Pepper (Preferably from mill)

  • 1 Shallot

  • Cast Iron Skillet

  • Olive oil


Step 1:

Pat dry any moisture on steak and let stand 30 minutes at room temperature.

Step 2:

Season steak with salt and pepper evenly over both sides (massage in to make sure that flavor gets down into the meat). 

Step 3:

Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat pan . Add steak to pan; cook 3-5 minutes on each side or until browned. 

Step 4:

Reduce heat to medium-low; add butter, thyme, shallot, and garlic to pan.  Tilt pan around so butter spreads evenly. Then toward you so the butter pools. Cook for a few minutes, basting steak with butter every few seconds. 

Step 5:

Remove steak from pan; cover loosely with foil and let stand 10 minutes to rest. **Reserve butter mixture. You’ll place this over the steak when serving.

Step 6:

Remove steak from foil, discard thyme, keep shallots and garlic to top steak with (thats what I do). Then spoon desired amount of butter mixture over the steak and enjoy!
