Cowboy Steak AKA Pan Seared Steak

A family favorite for dinner, especially when we're at the lake is grilled steak, baked potato and the classic Sara McQuaid Caesar Salad. Anyone who's a carnivore knows how to grill the perfect steak. The recipe I'm posting today is a twist on grilling a steak. David sometimes pan sears our steak on the stove and it produces a steak worthy of some of the high end restaurants in town. Usually, there’s nothing better than a great grilled steak, however, this recipe will make you question conventional wisdom. It will be smokey so if you happen to have an outdoor stove top you might want to opt for that.

The next recipe will be my Mother-In-Law, Sara's classic Caesar Salad.

Cowboy Steak

Three New York Strips, the thicker the better (go for the best quality meat, preferably from a meat market like Kuby’s or Rudolph’s Meat Market)
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt & Pepper

Brush the steaks with the extra virgin olive oil. Heat a cast iron skillet or pan to very hot
Put the steaks on the skillet for 2 minutes per side. It will sizzle and smoke heavily, so if you have a gas burner on your grill outside, that may be your best option. After searing the steaks for 2 minutes per side, brush each side with olive oil and garlic, and put them on a raised grate in a pan and cook in the oven for 12 minutes per side at 325 degrees. I know baking a steak goes against every grain in my body, however, you will end up with a steak as delicious and wonderful as any you can get in some of the finest steakhouses!
