The aroma of a hot steak most likely makes your mouth water. Steak is juicy and delicious, whether you eat it during a nice romantic dinner or in a fun and casual setting. But what if you’re hungry for steak when you don’t have a stove or a grill handy? Or you just don’t feel like making that jaunt to the steak house?

Why not quickly and easily cook up that steak in an electric skillet?

I have a recipe for cooking two steaks, served with a savory herb butter. This electric skillet steak is ideal for a special evening with your significant other, or when you have a good friend over for company. Feeding the family? Double or triple the recipe.

Here are some steak-cooking temperatures that you might find handy:

Rare:120°-125°F (49°-51°C)
Medium-rare:130°-135°F (55°-57°C)
Medium:140°-145°F (60°-63°C)
Medium well:150°-155°F (65°-69°C)
Well done:160°-175°F (71°C)

If medium-rare isn’t for you, you can adjust the cooking time for a steak that’s more rare, or more well-done. You can also try varying the seasonings used in the herb butter and come up with a unique combination of your own choosing.

This steak could also be served with a sauce, such as a barbecue sauce or steak sauce. Serve this steak with mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, rice, salad, stir-fried veggies or anything else that sounds appetizing.

  • 2 strip steaks of your choice - @ approximately 4 oz each
  • 2 tbsp. butter - softened
  • 1 tsp. Italian herbs
  • Salt & pepper - to taste


  • Season the meat with salt and pepper.
  • In a small bowl combine the butter with the herbs and mix until well combined. Refrigerate.
  • Preheat skillet over high heat, 400ºF. When the skillet light goes off (meaning it has reached the right temp.), place the steaks in the skillet.
  • Cook on one side until browned. Once it browns, it will loosen from the pan.
  • Flip over and brown the other side (approximately 1-2 minutes per side).
  • Reduce heat to medium-low (for electric skillet, 250°F-275°F) and cook with cover on for approximately 5 mins., or to desired doneness using a meat thermometer.
  • Serve with the herb butter.

  1. I am trying your electric skillet receipe for steak. I happen to have 2 large rib eye steaks, (1lbs. each)
    Not exactly sure about the cook time so I will wing it.
    I have used your receipts before and am always pleased. Sure this one will be great.

  2. Great recipe! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 !!
    Do to unfortunate circumstances my husband and i are living in a little kitchenette motel until our new home is ready and I use my electric skillet,instant pot and toaster oven,electric waffle iron and rice maker 😁😆. So instead of hubbys grill or the oven at home I found this new method and the recipe is easy to follow and really came out great! 👍 Thank You for sharing!!

  3. I made this today. This is a perfect recipe. The steaks came out perfectly. I cooked them for one minute more to make medium- well steaks.
