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 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:
|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.

Electric Skillet Steak
- 2 strip steaks of your choice - @ approximately 4 oz each

- 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.

- 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.
