If you’ve ever wondered how to make a perfect steak at home this recipe is for you! This herb crusted skillet steak is delicious and using your minimum moisture Kitchen Charm skillet you can get the best results every single time.
After you understand the method for cooking steaks you can easily adjust it to any cut or steak you want to cook. You’ll just want to pay attention to how thick the steaks are. In these photos we cooked sirloin top steaks, they were about 3/4″ thick. We cooked them for 5 minutes with the lid ajar and then 5 minutes with lid on. They were well done- meaning no pink. If you like steaks on the medium side we recommend reducing the second cooking time, when the lid is on, to 3 minutes.
Adding a spice rub to the steaks before you cook them infuses some delicious flavor. This recipe calls for a simple rub including salt and pepper, garlic powder and fresh chopped rosemary. The spice rub gives a nice crust when you cook the steak.
How to cook the perfect steak
Preheat the Kitchen Charm 10½-inch skillet on medium-high heat for about 3 minutes. The temperature is correct when a few drops of water are sprinkled on the skillet and they bead up and dance around without evaporating. Add the steaks. If steaks are large you may need to cook them in 2 batches, don’t over crowd the skillet
Place lid on ajar and cook for 5 minutes.
Turn temp down to medium, flip steaks and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes with lid flat.
Once done, remove from pan and make sure to let the steaks rest for 5 minutes before cutting and serving. This allows the steak to keep the moisture inside the steak instead of draining the juice when it’s cut. Enjoy!
