Pan Seared Steak

This is a super quick and easy recipe for pan searing steaks. As always choose a toxin free, ceramic, stainless steel, cast iron, or carbon steel pan to cook with. And make sure to keep your exhaust fans running to remove an excess condensation and odors that might build up while cooking.
