Creole Pan-Fried Flat Iron Steak
2 pounds flat iron steak
1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco™)
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 teaspoons garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 1/4 teaspoons blackened seasoning
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup water
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.
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.
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.
Tonight, I’m serving with a potato and vegetable medley and a fresh garden salad.
