You can always count on a good steak recipe here on the blog.  You can thank my steak loving son for that.  We have it just about every single week.  I love it because it is so easy to make.  The steak only takes about 10 minutes and its on the dinner table.  I love cooking steak and shrimp because it gives something for everyone.  I have perfected the garlic herb butter sauce and I am here to tell you…  this will be the best steak and shrimp you EVER eat!

What is the best pan for steaks?

A cast iron pan is recommended for steaks.  Make sure the cast iron pan is well oiled and seasoned.  You can also use a cast iron grill pan.

Prep Time:5 mins
Cook Time:15 mins
Total Time:20 mins


Steak and Shrimp:
  •     2 large New York strip steaks (0r 4 small)
  •     olive oil
  •     salt and pepper
  •     8 ounces shrimp, peeled and deveined
  •     2 whole cloves of garlic
  •     1-2 tablespoons cold butter
Garlic Butter:
  •     4 tablespoons softened butter
  •     1 tablespoon chopped flat leaf parsley
  •     2 teaspoons chopped thyme (or rosemary, or tarragon)
  •     1 tablespoon garlic, pressed or minced
  •     a big pinch of maldon sea salt + coarse black pepper


  1. MAKE THE BUTTER: Combine the butter, garlic, chopped parsley, and chopped thyme with a generous pinch of salt and pepper in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until you’re ready to use it.
  2. PREP THE STEAKS: Make sure to remove the steaks from the refrigerator at least 20 minutes before cooking. Pat down the steaks with a paper towel, brush with just a little bit of olive oil on both sides and generously season your steaks with salt and pepper on both sides, really rub it in and make sure it sticks.
  3. COOK: Heat a large cast iron skillet over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter along with roughly 1 tablespoon of olive oil and allow the oil to heat through. Add the steaks to the pan along with the two whole cloves of garlic and cook the steaks for roughly 3-7 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of the steak and your preference of doneness. Check the temperature using a meat thermometer and when it reaches your desired doneness, remove the steaks to a plate and let rest for 5-7 minutes.
  4. SHRIMP: If you have a ton of grease leftover from the steak, discard most of it, leaving just 1 tablespoon to cook the shrimp in. While the steak is resting, add the remaining tablespoon of butter to the pan (if you didn’t have much oil left) over medium heat and add the shrimp.  Move them around and season them with salt and pepper. Cook just long enough for them to curl up into a ‘c’ shape, about 1 – 1½ minutes.
  5. SERVE: when ready to serve, top the shrimp and steak with a generous dollop of the prepared garlic butter and serve warm with your favorite sides!
