Do you like steak? We are avid steak fans in our house. We don’t eat them all the time. But we do love an amazing steak! I have always been really picky when it comes to steak flavor! I want a lot of flavor. I want juicy. Basically I want how our steakhouse cooks the steak! Yum! But we can’t always pay the steakhouse prices. I’ve spent the last 11 years of our marriage trying to find the perfect steak recipe. I’ve tried many concoctions. And I’m so excited (beyond the moon excited) to share that I think I have finally done it!

Creating the perfect steak recipe

How many of you would love to hear your husband say “of all the steaks I can remember eating. This is definitely the best!” Over something you cooked? Well my husband just said that to me! Mind you we have eaten at many steakhouses! We have eaten steak at many different restaurants! And I was able to make the best steak with a few common household spices!

A steak this good deserves to be shared! So I’m sharing my secret for this perfect spicy steak recipe! Now, ours was a little on the spicy side, because we love a good kick. But I’ll even show you how to cut down on the spice and preserve the flavor, so that it is kid friendly too!

What I love even more, is just how simple this steak recipe is! I’ve tried so many elaborate recipes. And while they tasted alright, they just didn’t give you that “OH MY GOODNESS I’M IN HEAVEN” feeling…you know? This one did. At least for our taste buds it did.

You only need five ingredients too!

Place the steak in a shallow dish. Drizzle a little of the Pompeian olive oil over the top. Not a lot. Do not saturate it. Just a light drizzle to allow a very light covering over the surface.

Then dash the surface with all of the seasonings. I do each seasoning one at a time. Making sure each one had a good dusting across the surface.

Note: if you want less spicy, cut back on the amount of Cheyenne pepper you add. That is the only difference between the perfect spicy steak recipe and the perfect family steak recipe that even kids will eat.

Turn the steak over and do the same on the second side of the steak. If you have more than one steak to cook up. Add the next steak on top and do the same process for all of the steaks you will be cooking. Cover the dish and then place in the fridge to marinate. You will want to marinate it for at least 10 minutes. But it turns out better after about 20 minutes marinating.

The key is that you have to grill these steaks. Be it an indoor grill or outdoor grill, the key is that they are grilled. And don’t give me that “it’s cold” or “it’s passed grilling season” as an excuse. You will find me out in a coat and boots in the middle of a snowstorm grilling. (Seriously, just ask my neighbors. They see me all the time and are a little jealous of the smells I send through the neighborhood). I just can’t sacrifice flavor just because the weather isn’t nice.

To ensure you get the perfect grilling, follow this amazing How to grill the perfect steak tutorial! It really is spot on! Always make sure you preheat the grill. Don’t leave your steaks too long. Don’t leave them unattended. I usually grill my steaks for 3-4 minutes each side to get them browned perfectly, then lower the temperature and move them away from the direct flames to finish cooking. It makes a huge difference.

Once you have your steaks cooked to the perfect level remove them from the grill and lightly cover with aluminum foil for 5 minutes. This allows the flavors to really blend well. If you cut into your steak too soon after removing it from the grill, all the juices and flavor will run right out.

Now the time has arrived. You can bite into the amazing morsel of the perfect spicy steak recipe! We like to round off our dinners with a salad and when I’m really motivated a potato dish of some kind (come on; we’re in Idaho, it has to be a potato). Or even our amazing faux rice dish when we want to eat more gluten free.
