Panfried Steak with Green Onion & Garlic Butter


Panfried Steak with Green Onion & Garlic Butter is so simple to make anyone can do it! If you are in a hurry and looking for a quick dinner, this keto steak recipe is the answer! I could be biased but my husband is a steak guru. He’s never cooked a bad steak. 

Tips For Panfried Steak

There are a few tricks to the trade of cooking steak and pan-fried steak is no different. Here are a few to consider when making this particular keto steak recipe.

  • Green Onion & Garlic Butter – Make this ahead of time and put it in the refrigerator. Sometimes, I make a bunch of servings and throw them in the freezer in these little reusable containers. It’s a perfect way to preserve the green onions that go bad so fast AND you always have a mix ready to go.
  • Steak Selection – You can make this with any type of steak but our favorite choice is sirloin. New York Sirloin is my all time favorite. It’s tender and flavorful. If you shop Wholefoods, this is what we get. This makes the BEST panfried sirloin steak I’ve ever had!
  • Preparing to Cook – I recommend taking the steak out of the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes before starting to cook it. Bringing it to room temperature makes it transition nicely and keeps it tender.
  • Trust the Recipe – It is so tempting to flip the steak a thousand times or press down on it or poke it. Just trust the directions and limit the amount of time you handle it.
  • Let it Rest – After the steak is cooked and removed from the pan, let it rest for 5-10 minutes. This allows the juices to seal in and make the steak even juicier.

Even if you forget one or two of these tips, it’s still going to be so yummy! The simplicity of it, will have this added to your menu on a weekly basis.
