pan-fried steak

Have I ever mentioned I love steak? I have? I have. I love steak! And now I love pan-fried steak, thanks to Melting Wok who has shared her recipe for a fantastically crispified hunk of moo.

    Pan-fried Rib Eye Steak With Mushrooms And Onions

    Ingredients :
    1 piece 1/2 inch thick, rib eye steak ( approximately 14 oz )
    1 tsp salt
    1 1/2 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp cumin powder
    1 tsp cayenne pepper
    2 tsp Worcestershire sauce ( preferably Lea & Perrin )
    4 tbsp olive oil
    7 oz button mushroom, sliced
    1/2 a yellow onion, cut into rings

    Method :
    1) Rub both sides of the steak with salt first. Then with black pepper, cumin powder, cayenne pepper, worcestershire sauce, and lastly olive oil.
    2) Refrigerate for an hour or preferably overnight.
    3) Remove steak from refrigerator 15 minutes before cooking.
    4) Heat pan until really hot. Saute onions until slightly fragrant in 1 tbsp olive oil. Add mushroom and continue stir-frying for 1 minute. Dish up and set aside.
    5) Pan-fry steaks in 2 tbsp olive oil using the above cooking tips.

I am choosing to ignore the fact that there are mushrooms in this recipe. Anybody want mine?

I've always been known (locally at least) for my pan-fried steak (kin to chicken-fried), but I've been recently doing a lot more broiling of steak and it's been a great success. Tastest better, more tender, and I'm guessing it has to be healthier since I'm not using shortening or oil or anything. It's also a lot easier to clean up, and it seems to cook faster.

So, you're inviting me over for steak! Awesome! Be right there!

Wait, where do you live? :D

Send all mushrooms this way. I'm of Polish heritage on both sides of the family; mushrooms are the national fruit.

Or... take this!!

Poppy Cede said...

RW, you truly are peculiar.

Poppy Cede said...

RIGHT, I just remembered, you're drunk all weekend because you start your new job Monday.

Still does not explain the badger...

This looks so much better than what I had for dinner.

Poppy Cede said...

I'd ask you what you had but you'll never come back around to tell me. Cruel.

It's 6:30 in the morning and I'm salivating looking at this photo. That's a tasty-looking steak.

Joefish said...

Who says I don't come back around? :P

Poppy Cede said...

Dan - I know, it's a thing of beauty that I want in my belly.

//jar of peanut butter - You *still* didn't tell me what you had, did you? :P Something fast foody, as I gather from your cuppa post.

Joefish said...

You still didn't ask what I had, did you?

Poppy Cede said...

I do believe you are officially a shithead.

Joe, what did you have for dinner last night? (I think I mean last night, by now I don't remember. Or care. :P )

Tug said...

can i use chicken instead of steak?

Poppy Cede said...

LiT!!!!!!!!!! Where the FREAK have you been?!?!?!?

I don't mind if you use chicken instead of steak, but I'm not eating it. :)

Crying out loud, are you still blogging? Last I saw your site was abandoned. :P

Dinner two nights ago was a hamburger, specifically a flamethrower burger from Dairy Queen.

See? All you had to do was ask.

Poppy Cede said...

Mea culpa.

What the hell is a flamethrower hamburger? And how come you didn't share?!

Joefish said...

It's a yummy yummy burger with spicy zesty stuff on it.

Should I let you know the next time I'm having one?

Poppy Cede said...

Yes, yes you should. And you need to share. Actually, you need to buy me my own burger because I don't do cooties.

It's Me... Maven said...
