How do you make steak taste like a restaurant?
Making steak taste like a delicious steak from a restaurant is all about the preparation and technique. To start, you’ll want to select the best cut of steak you can find that has enough fat marbling and is the proper thickness.
Dry it off with a paper towel and season liberally with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Heat a heavy-bottomed stainless steel or cast iron skillet over high heat and let it get very hot. Then, add a tablespoon of high-smoke-point oil (like vegetable oil) and swirl it around.
Place the steaks in the skillet and let them cook for a few minutes on each side, undisturbed. Turn the heat down to medium-high, then add a couple tablespoons of butter and let it melt. Then, use a spoon to spoon the butter and steak juices over the steaks, which helps them caramelize and become tender and juicy.
When the internal temperature is 145° F for medium-rare, take your steak off the heat and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Once rested, serve and enjoy your steak!
