This wife surprised her husband with this little dish the other night. The kids were at Grandma's, so a nice dinner with wine was long overdue. I even added some taper candles to the table. Before I knew it, I had a decent romantic dinner for two set up.

I don't usually cook steak. Not that I don't like it, I'm just lazy. Lazy to chew and lazy to cook. This dish may have changed my mind. The steaks were tender and they were super easy to prep and cook.

Keep in mind that this recipe was used for 2 large bone in cut New York steaks. Double the recipe based on steak quantity and size of steaks. These are also pan seared steaks finished in the oven. I recommend a cast iron skillet for this process. I also encourage patting steaks dry with paper towels before seasoning and searing.

Here's what I used:


New York steaks of choice

3 tbsp Butter softened - unsalted used but use what you like.

3 Garlic cloves

2 tsp chopped fresh Parsley

1 tbsp Olive Oil

Sea Salt to taste

Crushed Black Pepper to taste


Dash of favorite steak seasoning


Prep steaks by resting at room temperature for at least 20 minutes. Pat steaks dry with paper towels and rub with salt and pepper to your liking. Let sit while you heat an oven safe pan.

Add 2 minced garlic cloves and parsley to softened butter. Mix well and set mixture aside. Fresh rosemary would work great too. I'm trying that next time.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Heat a tablespoon of olive oil over medium high heat. We don't want to burn the olive oil. Add a clove garlic to the pan for 30-ish seconds. Move it around a bit to flavor the oil. Add steaks to the pan one steak at a time and remove the garlic.

Sear each side until golden brown, about 4 minutes each. This may vary so aim for that golden steak color. Red juices may be visible. That's ok.

Once steak is seared, add a tablespoon of butter mixture to each steak and transfer pan to preheated oven. Cook time varies by steak preference. For medium to well steak, cook for 7-10 minutes. At this point the real chefs encourage checking internal temperature. I'm not a chef.

If you like rare or medium/rare try for 4-6 minutes.

If you have a thermometer here's what I found online for steak temperature:

Very Rare/rare 120° F to 125° F 4 minutes

Medium rare 125° F to 130° F 5-6 minutes

Medium 135° F to 140° F 6-7 minutes

Medium well 145° F to 150° F 8-9 minutes

Well done 160° F and above10+ minutes

I like my steak well done and cooked mine for ten minutes.

Pair with your favorite sides and done. I kept it simple with herb roasted baby potatoes and pan fried asparagus. Grab some candles from the dollar store and you have a decent date night dinner for two. 😉
