Balsamic Honey Steak


balsamic vinegar honey seared steak

It's almost Labor Day! You know what this means!!??
END OF SUMMER? Yea no. Everyone always says this (along with "no more white pants" which really just angers me... why are you taking away a pant option so early? Rude) but I have no idea where this came from. Is it still hot? Is it still sunny? Is it like the real-zippidy-do-dah-like-actual-official-first-day-of-fall? Neg. So how 'boutcha live up these three days of work-less bliss and make something summery... it's not the end of the season I tell ya! Something like this Balsamic and honey marinated steak would be fabulous to cheers your forks to this weekend, and it takes like zero (lie, it takes maybe 3) steps so you can make din with one hand and gulp down a summery margarita with the other. Enjoy!

Balsamic Honey Steak

Prep Time: 30 mins | Cook Time: 15 mins | Serves 2 

Ingredients
  • 1 Boneless NY Ribeye, room temperature
  • salt and pepper
  • Canola/vegetable oil
marinade 
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tbs. honey
  • 2 tbs. Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbs. soy sauce
  • couple cracks of pepper
The Steps
  1. Marinate steak: Season your steak on both sides well with salt and pepper. Place steak and all ingredients for the marinade in a ziplock bag and let sit on countertop for at least 30 mins but no longer than 2 hours.

  2. Sear the steak: Heat 2-3 tbs. of oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, place steak (let marinade drip off in bag first) in skillet and sear for 2 minutes exactly. After two minutes, flip steak and sear other side. After 2 minutes, turn heat all the way to low and let steak cook for 5 minutes, then flip again and let other side cook 5 minutes. Remove from pan and place on cutting board to rest for 10 minutes. 

  3. Optional Pan Sauce: If you'd like a pan sauce, you can take the marinade in the ziplock bag and let reduce in the pan for about 10 minutes (whisking occasionally). Place a small mesh sieve (sifter) on top of a bowl/measuring cup and pour pan sauce through to collect any burned bits. Serve on top of steak. Enjoy!
