Over the past few weeks, Jane and I have been craving and eating steak weekly and ordered steaks prepared in various ways. Whether the steak is grilled, BBQ’ed, or pan-fried, there’s nothing like devouring a big juicy medium-rare steak. YUM!
Since Valentine’s day is coming up, I want to share this eazy peazy Vietnamese Style Steak recipe that looks amazing, smells wonderful and tastes great. I simply marinated the steak in Maggi Seasoning sauce, garlic, oil, and pepper and pan-fried on a cast iron skillet and create a nice crust.
3 pounds Steak,
3 tablespoons Maggi Seasoning
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon crushed black pepper
12 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
1 onion, thinly sliced
- In a small bowl, mix Maggi Seasoning, oil, pepper, and garlic cloves.
- Pat dry steaks and in a deep dish or zip lock bag, pour marinade over steaks. Marinade for at least 3 hours.
- Remove steaks from marinade and pat dry.
- Heat cast-iron skillet or skillet to Medium-High. Once pan is smoking, add a little oil if needed, and cook the first side of the steak for 4-5 minutes
- Flip the steak and continue cooking for about 4 minutes. Add some butter to the pan with about 1 minute cooking time remaining and scoop butter and drizzle on top of the steak.
- Once steaks are cooked, plate and cover with foil.
- Reduce the heat to Medium and saute onions in cast iron skillet for a few minutes or until cooked.
- Plate and serve immediately after onions are cooked.
- You can substitute regular soy sauce for Maggie Seasoning, although there is a distinct taste to Maggie Seasoning that makes it extra special.
- I like NY Strip Steak, but any steak cut is fine. Use your favorite kind of steak or what steak you have available.
- Grilling works for this as well
