  3. Next, place the steak on a cooling rack, on a tinfoil covered cookie sheet in the oven for 45 minutes.

  7. At this point, gently spoon the resulting oil onto the steak until it finishes cooking.

  10. Finally, Slice the steak into half-inch thick strips and serve.

Pan Seared Steak Serving Suggestions

Welch's Sparkling Mocktails go great with Pan Seared Steak!

If you do decide to make this a romantic meal, I highly suggest serving it with a few essentials. First, ensure you have a starch; for this I highly recommend Potatoes Au-Gratin. Then, you need a vegetable of some sort; at home, a simple salad might provide the most versatile option (I like a good Caesar). And finally, you most certainly need to pair it with the right drink.

I drink strictly non-alcoholic beverages, so for me, a homemade lemonade or Welch’s Sparkling Mocktails work perfectly. Essentially, you want to make sure you’re drinking something slightly acidic to complement the meal.

If you have any suggestions of your own, or questions about this recipe, please let me know in the comments.
