Pan-Seared Steak Recipe

I’m a meat lover so diet is not really for me. Steak is one of my favorite food so if I’m having a craving for it, I really visit any restaurant that serves steak. Eating steak in a restaurant is so steep so I consider it a treat for myself. Here are some of the restaurants where I tried and tasted steak. Pepper Lunch is my go-to restaurant since they have a lot of branches.

Since it is expensive to eat steak in the restaurant, it is much better to cook this at home. Even though cooking steak at home is a hit or miss, it is always part of my menu. Sometimes I cook this in the oven but most of the time I just pan-grill it in the stove or electric grill.

One of the secrets of cooking steak is to buy quality meat, yes, it is true. I tried beef from the wet market, hindi ko type kahit sabi nila sirloin daw yun. Hehehe! I usually buy my steak cut at the grocery especially the steak at Landers from New Zealand. I recently discovered the Saikoro Steak so it is now part of my favorites but I can only order this online.


I love cooking steak because I can prepare this in less than 30 minutes and you only need a few ingredients. Just season with salt and pepper, sometimes I add garlic powder. I used to like a “well done” steak but now I learned to appreciate the "medium well" steak.

If I have extra time, I will cook gravy sauce but God knows how many times I’ve tried to make a gravy sauce from scratch but sometimes I failed so I seldom prepare the sauce. There are instances when everything went perfect and my son loves my gravy, he even wants to drink it because he thought it’s a soup. There were also times where I just buy some ready-made or instant mix gravy sauce.
