Tips

This recipe is extremely adaptable to your taste and preferences. Feel free to substitute steak with pork chops, chicken, or even fish.

If you're not a fan of spinach, replace it with mushrooms, bell peppers, or asparagus.

Cooking steak on the stove

The most accurate way to cook steak perfectly is to use a meat thermometer. Medium-rare 130°F to 135°F (55°C to 60°C), medium 140°F to 145°F (60°C to 65°C), medium-well 150°F to 155°F (65°C to 70°C), well done 160°F and above (70°C and above).

Remove steak from the pan, grill, or oven when it is a few degrees below the desired temperature. It will continue cooking while it rests. Always let your steak rest for 5 minutes before eating.
