Total Time:15 mins


  • Cast-Iron Skillet


  • 2 sirloin steaks 4 - 6oz
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes


  • In a small microwaveable bowl, melt butter in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds or until completely melted. Add garlic and parsley flakes.
  • Add olive oil to pan and medium-heat over high heat until the pan is blazing hot (about 5 minutes). Make sure to use a vent.
  • Pat the meat dry.
  • Add salt and pepper to both sides of steaks, and place in pan. Grill for 2 minutes and flip over.
  • Spoon some of the butter mixture over the steaks and grill for another 2 minutes. 6. Flip steaks again, add more butter, and let cook for another 30 seconds per side until the steak is done to your liking.
  • Use an instant-read meat thermometer, and remove the meat from pan when the thermometer reads 10 degrees below the temperature for doneness. Add the remaining butter mixture. Cover lightly with a piece of aluminum foil and let rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.


If you have trouble finding a 4-6 ounce sirloin steak, this recipe will work with any type of steak that is the same size. Always use your meat thermometer and eat when a safe cooking temperature is reached.
