Creole Pan-Fried Flat Iron Steak

Recipe by  

"My wife prefers my pan-fried steaks over grilled Filet Mignon, New York Strip or Sirloin any day. The key is not so much the cut of the meat, rather how it is prepared to give it its magic."

Directions

  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Season the steak with hot pepper sauce. Sprinkle or mist with a little lime juice and season lightly with just a portion of the garlic salt, salt, black pepper and blackened seasoning.
  2. Place the steak in the pan and cover with a lid. Cook for about 20 minutes, or to your desired degree of doneness, turning and adding more seasoning every 5 minutes.
  3. Remove steaks to a serving platter and keep warm. Stir butter and water into the pan, removing any browned bits from the bottom to make a gravy. Season with additional garlic salt, salt and pepper to taste. Serve steaks with gravy drizzled over them.

This was fabulous. I made one with the hot sauce and one without for the kiddos and both turned out excellent. My husband ate the leftovers the next morning with eggs and said that the steak tasted even better.

I stuck to the recipe exactly and it just doesn't replace grilled. I am the BBQ queen and this steak was tough and not good. I tired it because it's winter time and too cold to grill outside. My boyfriend said it was 'OK' so I gave this 3 stars but unfortunatly I won't make it again. :(

Good recipe if you like the spice of tabasco, but be as liberal with the lime juice as you are the tabasco to even out the flavors. And don't be too stingy with the spices, but there is probably less need to reapply every time you turn the steak.

These seasonings are the most delicious everr. The steaks were spicy and had that citrus kick from the lime. My husband said that it was the best steak that I have ever made. I put all of the seasonings in a cup and stirred them up with a spoon and sprinkled the seasonings on the steaks each time I turned them over. I served with rice, broccoli and corn and poured the pan juices over the rice. I usually season with lawrys seasoning salt, garlic powder, pepper and zataran's creole seasoning. Delicious!

It was a bit salty for me, but next time that will be easier to fix. All-in-all, a great recipe.

This was great!! I added a few more spices to the rub and cooked it on the grill instead of on the stove. I also added some red wine and mushrooms to the topping. My husband loved it!!

I might have done something wrong with this recipe but as far as I know I followed it to a tee. I would have to say I probably will not be making this again considering it was just too salty. Maybe someone can give me some pointers. Thanks Anna
