I don't claim to be a chef, I cook because I love it, and to enjoy a nice dinner, healthy with my family. In my opinion there is no better way to cook a steak than on a hot charcoal grill, unfortunately sometimes there just isn't time to fire up the grill and wait for the coals to get hot before cooking your Crooked Creek Beef Steak.

Here is a quick and easy recipe for a great tasting, perfeclty cooked T-Bone Steak. Don't have any T-Bone's? This recipe will also work great for a Ribeye, New York Strip, or Sirloin steak. 

Feeds: 2-4 people
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 10-15 mins


  • 2 Crooked Creek Beef T-Bone Steaks
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 4 teaspoons butter


Thaw your Crooked Creek steaks and pat them dry with a paper towel


Preheat your cast iron pan by setting your stove burner on high while you season your steak. 



Rub each side of your steak with olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper. 


Make sure your cast iron pan is very very hot before putting your steaks on, it may even be smoking a little bit, this insures that you get a good sear your steak. After putting your steaks in the pan, let them cook 2 minutes on the first side before flipping and letting them cook 2 minutes on the other side. 


After your have seared the steak on both sides reduce the heat to low/medium, then add 2 teaspoons of butter straight on the pan, and 1 teaspoon on each steak, also add your two teaspoons of garlic, some on top of the steaks and some in the pan. The butter will help cool the pan down as well as add flavor while the steak continues to cook on the inside. 


After 2-3 minutes flip your steaks to ensure even cooking. By this point the butter should be boiling in the pan. Let your steak continue to cook until desired doneness. To get a nice medium rare steak use a meat thermometer and let the steaks continue to cook on the pan until an internal temperature of 135, the take them off and let them rest for 10 minutes. The steaks will continue too cook while they rest. 


After the steaks have rested you should have a perfectly cooked medium rare steak with a reddish pink color. Are the fancier ways to cook a steak, sure there are, but if you want a perfectly cooked steak in minimal time, it's hard to be simple seasoning and a hot cast iron pan!
