My new favorite way to cook steak (hint: don't thaw it)

By Farmer Dan

Start with a frozen steak - browning both sides on your stove top

Here's my new favorite way to enjoy a Heartstone Farm grass fed steak - cook it frozen! Don't thaw it! And the best thing about this method is that it's not just convenient - but it results in a perfectly cooked, delicious steak! 

And it's easy! Just follow these steps:

1. Set your stove top to high and heat a cast iron pan. Turn your oven on and set the temp to 375. 

A half hour later I was enjoying a very tasty ribeye

2. When the pan is hot add butter. Add Kosher salt (and pepper if desired) to the steak. Add your frozen steak to the hot pan - cooking it till it's a lovely brown (about 2 minutes) and then turn it over until the other side is brown. 

3. When both sides are brown, remove from the stove and put the pan in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature and when it gets to 125 degrees (for medium rare) remove the pan from the oven and let site for 5 minutes. 

4. Enjoy a perfectly cooked, delicious steak - in less than 30 minutes from freezer to table!

  • I’m very interested in grass started and grass finished. BUT! Can’t find a deep freezer to save my life.
