How To Make a Perfect Steak

 I made the boys steaks for dinner the other night.  Try this technique and you may never make a steak any other way again.  First I started the mushrooms.  Slice a bunch of button mushrooms and throw them in  a skillet with a pat of butter.  Sprinkle them with salt and pepper.  Cover them and cook them over medium heat until they release their juices.

 Bring the steaks to room temperature and sprinkle them with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper.  Rub it in thoroughly on both sides.  Let them sit for a bit.

 Remove the lid from the mushrooms and continue to cook until they turn golden.  They will have a rich, earthy flavor now.

 Turn on the exhaust over your stove.  Preheat a cast iron skillet so the steak will sizzle when it hits the pan.  Cook each steak for 2 minutes on each side.

 Remove to a plate, place a pat of butter on the steak and let the it rest for 15 minutes. Adjust the time according to how thick your steak is.

 A perfect steak in no time at all.  My guys said these were the best steaks they have ever eaten.

 Teddy wants one too!
