Cajun Seared Steak

I found this recipe on a site that I can no longer remember. It helps you plan meals and make a grocery list. I didn't venture any further with it since there is a fee involved. Anyway, I found this recipe and thought it sounded great. I was hungry for steak, too. This was delicious. However....I had a severe smoking issue. The recipe says to heat skillet to high. I did that but when I put the steaks in, you would have thought my house was on fire. I had my son running around opening windows. But, besides was delicious!

Cajun Seared Steak


2 (8oz) New York strip steaks or filet mignons
1 cup unsalted butter
1 T black pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder


Butterfly the steaks. Mix dry ingredients in small bowl. Melt the butter and pour in shallow bowl.

Heat skillet on high for 10 minutes. Dip steaks in melted butter; sprinkle with the seasonings on both sides and sear 2-3 minutes on each side.

Place on warmed plates. Add rest of melted butter to skillet. Stir for 2 minutes and pour over steaks.
