Directions

  1. Season beef with adobo on both sides. Heat butter and oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add steaks to pan and cook until well browned and medium rare, flipping once, about 6 minutes. Transfer meat to a plate; cover with foil to keep warm.
  2. Lower heat to medium. Add garlic to skillet and cook until light golden brown, about 1 minute. Add parsley and cook 30 seconds more.
  3. Divide steaks evenly among serving dishes. Top steaks evenly with garlic mixture.

Footnotes

  • Cooking Tip from LA COCINA GOYA
  • Perfectly Seared Meat: For the most mouth-watering steaks, the key is searing the meat, that is, cooking it on a hot pan until a brown and crunchy crust develops. To make sure your steak sizzles, instead of steams, follow these simple steps:
  • First, pat the meat dry with a paper towel before seasoning with adobo. Next, "preheat" your skillet on the stove before adding the oil (it's hot enough when you hold your hand 6 inches from the pan, and your hand feels too hot after 5 seconds). Then, add the oil and butter. Once the butter melts and foams, and the oil gets shimmery, add the meat (two steaks at a time per 8-inch pan).
  • This combination of a hot pan, hot oil and dried meat that doesn't crowd the pan will guarantee a restaurant-quality sear.

Really good! I cooked the garlic in with the beef which was probably a bad idea. I thought I could save time. But I did sauté some squash in the leftover sauce, and it was amazing! Also, used some of the remaining sauce on the beef. Definitely add the sauce later! But the taste was yummy!

These were a hit in my house! I have already been asked to make them again, I rough chopped the garlic and added red pepper per request from my DH, but otherwise made exactly as stated - delicious!

loved the flavor on the steak and to be honest, we could've eaten the topping straight-up, with a spoon! served with green beans, but thinking next time a tomato-avocado salad with a lemony dressing to add a tangy compliment.

I have to admit, we were pleasantly surprised by these steaks! I was in "blackening" mode and was afraid I'd overseasoned them w/GOYA Adobo (minus pepper because I hate black pepper). I scraped a bit off and they were fine. We opted to grill the steaks, rather than pan fry because, well, just because. I recognized the importance of butter and warmed the butter/EVOO/garlic/parsley and added to the top of the steaks as they rested. Delicious. We have filets in the freezer w/this recipe's name all over them.... THANKS, GOYA!
