Pan Seared Steak

This pan seared steak is part of our regular dinner rotation because its easy to make using a cast iron pan versus the grill and comes out perfectly medium rare and juicy. A dry rub of salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder and paprika gives the steak great flavor and I finish it with a garlic rosemary butter sauce mixed with the pan drippings. Move over A1! Its one of the most viewed recipes on my blog so I hope you'd give it a try đŸ™‚
