Instructions:

  1. Pat dry Star Ranch Angus beef sirloin steaks. Let sit for 20 to 30 minutes to bring steaks to room temperature.
  2. Heat a cast iron skillet or heavy duty fry pan on the stove over high heat. A non-stick pan is not recommended because they should not be used on high heat.
  3. Brush skillet with canola oil and add kosher salt.
  4. Sear the steaks on the bottom, top and sides.
    Rare: 1.5 minutes per side
    Medium-Rare: 2.5 minutes per side
    Medium: 3.5 minutes per side
    Well Done: 4.5 minutes per side
  5. Add the butter, freshly cracked pepper and tarragon. Then add red wine to deglaze skillet. The liquid will reduce by half.
  6. Transfer to a warm plate and spoon the butter sauce over steaks.
  7. Let steaks “rest” for 5 to 10 minutes. This allows the interior juices to redistribute.

Skillet/Pan-Frying Tip

Season beef (directly from the refrigerator), as desired, before placing beef in a preheated skillet (do not overcrowd). Do not add oil or water; do not cover.
