Here is an absolutely foolproof, easy, and quick way to make a juicy steak with a crisp, peppery crust in the oven. Add a loaf of bread, a salad, and a bottle of wine, and you have an easy and delicious dinner you can make for weeknights and special occasions alike.
Pan Seared New York Strip Steak with Garlic Butter Sauce + Onions
Pan Seared New York Strip Steak with Garlic Butter Sauce 2 New York strip steaks (or any other cut will also work) 1 onion, cut into thick circles or strips 3 cloves garlic 1 tablespoon butter 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1 teaspoons ground cumin 1 teaspoon ground coriander 1 teaspoons paprika
Though you can follow this procedure with almost any tender cut of beef (and with chicken breasts, if that direction appeals to you), it's a perfect treatment for tenderloin medallions (filet mignon). (Photo: Craig Lee for The New York Times)
