Hello Friends! Hope you are all well.
So I started the Keto Diet a week ago. It has been difficult at times, but the results have been amazing so far. I have way more energy and more focus. I was getting a little craving a few days ago and wanted something juicy and delicious.
I decided on a steak. I was going to order the ribeye steak from Texas Roadhouse because they make a delicious ribeye. Unfortunately, when I checked the nutritional facts, I did not like what I saw. One 10 oz. ribeye contained 2g of carbs (not bad at all), but 980 mg. of sodium. (That’s a lot). Don’t get me wrong though, if you were just eating this and nothing else for the day, then you would be fine. Other than that, no.
With my dreams of having a steak for dinner crushed, I decided to look on YouTube and see just how easy it was to make a steak. I looked at Gordon Ramsey’s Video for a perfect steak and numerous other’s. After much research, I went to Whole Foods and purchased my grass fed ribeye.
I have to say that this steak was not only easy to make, it didn’t take much effort to cook. The cast iron skillet, I bought did all the work.
- Cast Iron Skillet
- Ribeye (Any size you prefer)
- 4 tbsp of butter
- A couple sprigs of thyme and rosemary
- Steak Dry Rub (I used Bone Suckin’ Sauce Steak Seasoning and Rub)
- 4-5 peeled cloves of garlic
- I small onion (whichever type of onion you prefer.
- I heated up my cast iron to medium high and added a little avocado oil to the skillet. Some people said to just add the oil to the steak and lay it in the pan. Some added the oil to the pan, so I say your choice.
- I waited for the skillet to get hot, feeling the handle to see if it did.
- I then added the dry rub seasoning evenly to the steak on both sides.
- Once the skillet got hot, I took my steak and laid it in the pan away from me.
- I let the steak sit on each side for 3-4 minutes. I like my steaks medium well, so if you like them more rare, then you can add them for less time.
- I then put the steak on its sides, so the sides could be a little crispy.
- I then added the butter, rosemary, thyme, and garlic.
- I waited until the butter melted and the garlic had sit in the butter for a little bit.
- I then tilted the skillet (just a little) and took spoonfuls of butter and poured it over the steak. I turned the steak around and did the same thing.
- I then took the garlic, rosemary, and thyme and laid it on the top of the steak with some raw onions.
- Let the steak sit for another minute and removed it from the skillet.
It was delicious and the steak rub gave the steak a nice crisp. Just be warned that your place will look like a smokehouse, so I recommend opening your windows and patio or balcony doors when cooking this. Now I am not a professional chef and this was just for fun, so please do your own research on making a steak and personalize it to your liking. Hope you enjoy.
