BEST STEAK TO USE FOR THIS RECIPE?

It’s best to use tender cuts of meat for this type of recipe, because the steak is meant to cook quickly. Cuts of meat like sirloin, tenderloin, New York strip or stir fry cuts will work great. I used ribeye steaks because this cut of meat has the perfect amount of fat for flavor. For this cut, fast cooking methods using high heat produce the most delectable results. Try to avoid using flank and skirt steak for this recipe.

HOW TO MAKE STEAK TENDER?

I let the steak marinade with the seasoning but it’s not a requirement. Once you are ready to cook the steak make sure it’s not cold.  Cold cuts of meat that are added to a hot pan will get tough. Keep it covered on the counter to take the chill off. Keep the heat high to get a good sear on the meat.

USING A CAST IRON PAN 

For this dish I used my cast iron skillet. This is a heavy bottom pan and it doesn’t get ruined on high heat. If seasoned properly it’s a great non-stick, allowing the steak to sear and release easily. You can also use a heavy-bottom stainless-steel. Keep in mind stainless-steel pans are more prone to sticking, additional oil may be needed. These types of pans will give the steak a great sear.
