These Keg Steaks with sauteed asparagus is the perfect date night recipe if you ask me.
If you’re looking for a great steak recipe but one that is a bit different than the average butter and herb recipe then you probably just found it.
This recipe uses “The Keg” steak sauce and just a little olive oil and seasoning which gives it a deep delicious flavor.
We are using a 2 inch thick Strip Steaks and searing it over medium-high heat.
Oh did I mention it takes less than 15 minutes to prepare this whole meal!!
I mean you could always go to an expensive steakhouse and order something similar to this dish and pay triple the price.
I’d prefer to make it at home for a lot less and have extra money to splurge on whatever else.
I like to use the “Kegs Steak Sauce” on my strip steaks and t-bone steaks.
They just come out so moist and delicious.
Everytime I make these steaks, I’m always asked for the recipe.
Some would argue these are some of the best tasting steaks they have ever had.
You can pretty much find this marinade at any of your local grocers.
The Keg Steakhouse & Bar Marinade = Delicious!
This steak can be served rare, medium rare or medium well done.
Strip steak is best served medium rare, in order to cook it that way you will want to sear it for 4 minutes on one side then flip it over once and sear it for another 3 minutes on the other.
If you prefer your steak medium done, then you will want to sear it for 5 minutes on one side and 3-4 on the other.
Always let your steak sit off the heat for 5 minutes to rest before serving!
If you don’t have strip steak then you can always use ribeye or t-bone if you like in replace of strip.
Just take note of the different cooking times as I will explain more below.
This recipe works very well served alongside some sauteed asparagus.
Making this meal gluten free and paleo for those who like to enjoy those kind of meals.
You can also prepare a baked potato, rice or another veggie of your liking on the side.
However for me this meal is perfect, plus I love asparagus and could eat it all day everyday.
Looking for a “Rosemary Butter Steak Recipe”? for another time.
You will find that recipe at the very bottom of this post.
Gluten free dinner that is super delicious!
I just love the way this steak tastes, it just melts in your mouth and to be honest I have yet to try something this good in the restaurants.
So if your thinking of preparing this for a loved for some kind of special occasion then you can’t go wrong with this recipe.
WHY ARE KEG STEAKS SO GOOD
- The trick to cooking the best steak is to use ample butter, you are going to be searing the steak while it cooks.
- Then the second trick is to season the steak generously on both sides prior to cooking with salt and pepper.
- Then if you are using a marinade like I have here, you will want brush both sides of the steak prior to searing.
- If you follow those three tips you are sure to prepare the best KEG steaks.
HOW THE KEG COOKS STEAKS
Steak cooking times vary based on the cut: Always cook your steak over medium-high heat, searing it on each side only once.
Turning the steak often sometimes leads to a overcooked and tough steak.
- Sirloin Steak: Cook for 6 minutes on one side and 4-5 on the other for a medium rare steak. Up the cooking time by one minute to have a medium steak.
- Ribeye: Cook for 5 minutes on one side and 3 on the other for a medium rare steak
- Fillet or Strip: Cook for 4 minutes on one side and 3 on the other for a medium rare steak
- T-Bone: Cook for 8 minutes on one side and 4-5 on the other for a medium rare steak
