- your choice of meat (this method works just as good for pork chops)
- 2 dashes each of salt, garlic, black pepper and cumin
- 1 tsp olive oil
- a few peels of a red onion and 2 cloves of garlic
Instructions For Indoor Seasoned Steak
- Pre-heat your oven to broil, if you don’t have a broiler, put it on 475.
- While the oven heats up, put the skillet on the stove top on med-high heat, add the olive oil and let it heat up for a minute.
- Season the steak liberally with all the spices. Once seasoned, add to the skillet and sear for 30 seconds on both sides. Remove from stove-top.
- From here, before throwing it into the broiler/oven I like to add two cloves of crushed garlic and a few scales of red onion around the outside of the pan. These are less for seasoning the meat, and more for eating with the steak once done. The onion crisps up just right and the crushed garlic, roasted in the steak juices and oil is something to certainly try.
- Broil for about 7-10 minutes. You have to check this frequently, depending on your cut of meat, the thinner it is the faster it will cook.
