Perfectly Pan Seared Steak For Fathers Day #SundaySupper
Perfectly Pan Seared Steak with Hollandaise Sauce is an easy yet elegant meal to make for the one you love at home.
Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful Dad's!
I knew Perfectly Pan Seared Steak would be perfect for Fathers Day Sunday Supper.
Then I saw lobster tails went on sale and new a Perfectly Pan Seared Steak smothered in Hollandaise Sauce and topped with a few slices of Lobster Tail was going to be the perfect man food to show Colt just how much we appreciate and love him!
He's really done a lot this last year to do so many of the things I've been unable to do.
He's come home after work to make dinner when my pains become unbearable and all I can think of is crawling into a ball.
He'll say don't worry about it we can handle this.
Colt's snapped almost all of my finished photos this last year including the one above, he's gained a lot of patiences with my picky ways of angles and plating.
But most of all he is and has always been an amazing Father.
He's patient and understanding.
Loving and kind.
When the kids were little he would lay next to their beds and read to them until they feel asleep, many nights after a long day at work.
I can't tell you how many times I had to wake him up slumped over on their beds.
I'm also extremely thankful for my own Father.
He's spent endless hours this last year taking his Grandkids to keep them occupied or taking me to appointments when Colt was unable too.
My Dad's always their for us no matter what time of day or night it is.
I feel blessed to have such wonderful men in my life.
This recipes for all those Dad's who make our lives special!
In a small bowl combined 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar and 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil. Mix until well combined.
Pour half of worcestershire sauce mixture over steaks. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic, sea salt and pepper over steaks. Rub mixture into steaks well.
Flip steaks over and apply remaining worcestershire sauce mixture, garlic powder, sea salt and pepper.
Rub into steaks well.
Cover and place back into the refrigerator for 1 hour or up to a day.
When you are ready to cook steaks heat a heavy duty cast iron pan without any oil over high heat until hot.
Add steak and cook for 4-8 minutes per side dependent on thickness of steak and how well done you like your steak.
Colt bought about 1/3" thick rib eyes on this trip and they took about 4 minutes per side for a medium to medium rare steak.
Once steak is seared flip steak over and cook until desired doneness.
For thick steaks that are more well done turn down temperature once outside of steak is seared until desired doneness is reached.
Remove steaks to a plate and cover with tin foil.
Allow steaks to rest 5 minutes to allow the juices to absorb back into the steaks for juicy steaks.
Meanwhile to make Hollandaise Sauce in a large bowl or top of double boiler combine 4 egg yolks, 2 tablespoon water and 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice. Whisk until well combined.
Slice 1/2 cup butter into 1 1/2 tablespoon sized pieces.
Add 2 slices of butter to the egg mixture and place over a pot of boiling water.
Whisk until butter melts and eggs start to thicken.
Add an additional 2 slices of butter and whisk until butter melts.
Add remaining butter and mix until mixture is thickened and hot.
If eggs start to curdle of separate whisk in an additional 1-2 tablespoons boiling water into hollandaise sauce.
To assemble arrange steak and cover with hollandaise sauce.
If your really looking to impress the ones you love add about 6 ounces of cooked lobster tail as a special surprise.
Steamed Asparagus or Broccoli are fabulous with the hollandaise sauce and sure to be the perfect accompaniment to this meal.
Here's to all the Dads who make this world a better place!
