Pan Seared Steak In Pebre Sauce

Hi everyone, and happy Foodie Friday!

Once again, I have to apologize for showing up late to my own party - it's just that work commitments have made it difficult to keep to my blogging schedule this week.

I'm not complaining, though, because I have the good fortune to work with teenagers - and despite what we're constantly told in the media about today's youth, I am here to tell you the world is full of passionate, committed, dedicated teens who are out there doing good every day, and after having had an opportunity to see such good first hand this week, I decided to cap it off with a favourite weekend dish of my son's when he was a teen: Pan Seared Steak in Pebre Sauce.

Please enjoy the step by step video here along with the printable recipe.

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onion
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons minced jalapeño pepper
  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  •  2, 8- to 10-ounce New York strip (top loin) steaks, trimmed
  • 1 tbsp creole seasoning ( I always use Emeril's Essence) or Steak spice
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 avocado, pitted and peeled
  1. Combine the onion, tomato, cilantro, jalapeño (or serrano), vinegar, garlic, olive oil, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl.
  2. S;ice horizontal slits into each steak and cover with half of the pebre Sauce. Cover and reserve the rest of the sauce in the refrigerator. 
  3. Cover the steak with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least two hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  5. To prepare steak: Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet, such as cast iron, over medium-high. Sprinkle the steaks with equal amounts of creole seasoning. Add the steaks and cook just until browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast the steaks 5 to 7 minutes for medium-rare, depending on thickness. Transfer to a clean cutting board. Tent with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, add the avocados to the remaining Pebre sauce.
  7. Carve the steak into thin slices. Serve with the avocado and Pebre Sauce.

Stay tuned tomorrow for more cocktails, gossip, and an AMAZING appetizer!

  1. Mmmm that is right up my alley. I also agree with you about the youths. People judge them because they wear a hoody without ever finding out who they are and what they do in life.
