After a week of ordering take-out, tonight I am finally back in my kitchen to cook a warm dinner for my family. I made this seared steak with a balsamic glaze which I got the recipe from one of my favorite cooking shows. It was also nice to have one of my brothers around to share our dinner.
Seared Steak with a balsamic glaze
3 lb. round Steaks, about ½ inch thick
6 cloves of garlic, sliced thin
3 Tbsp of Balsamic Vinegar
1 cup of Beef Stock
1 Tbsp of unsalted butter
Steak Seasoning to taste
1 Tbsp of Vegetable Oil
Season the steaks on both sides with the salt, pepper and steak seasoning.
Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes or until it’s smoking hot.
Add the oil, once hot, add in the steaks and cook them for about 2 minutes on each side for medium temperature.
Remove the steaks to a plate, cover them with foil and set aside.
Add a tiny bit more oil in the pan and add in the garlic, cook for about a minute, pour in the beef stock and let it cook for a couple minutes or until the beef stock reduces by half.
Add in the balsamic vinegar and butter and let that cook for another minute as well.
Pour over the cooked steaks and enjoy! I served mine with mashed potatoes and some roasted carrots with vinaigrette
This looks really good! I am always looking for easy recipes with just a few ingredients, so I will add this to my “must try” list.
Same here, Patricia, my recipes have to be simple, delicious, and quick.
I love the flavor of balsamic vinegar! I’ve put it on chicken but never tried it on steak before. it’s such a great idea and would go perfect with some mashed potatoes.
I do too, Stephanie, as a matter of fact, today, I made Brussels sprouts with balsamic vinegar and it was delicious.
I love seeing new ways to cook classics. These sound delicious and like something I can throw into our meal rotation this week.
Same here, Nicole, I always look for new recipes or new ways to cook some of those classics as you said.

You had me at steak. This is totally making my mouth water – I haven’t had a good steak in FOREVER!
Once a while, I love to have a nice steak, Krysten!
Steak is one of my favourite meals! I enjoy so much every combination with it. Your recipe looks so Yummy! I will try it myself.
You will enjoy it, Violeta!
I really do like balsamic vinegar. I normally have a reduction over salads but I’m sure it’s just as nice over meat.
Just like you, Melanie, I love balsamic vinegar dressing, I also have a reduction for my Brussel sprouts.
I love a good balsamic sauce and glaze. This recipe would be so nice for a winter meal. We love to grill outside during the summer, but we’re just not quite there. 🙂
The grilling season is approaching, Amanda, be ready for more steak recipes.
What a nice recipe!! Your picture made me hungry! The steak you make looks delicious.
I will try to make it at home.
Hope you like it, Roseline!
My other half would totally love this for sure. This kind of thing is right up his street – steak & Balsamic are winners xx
My husband loves steak which to his opinion I don’t make often.
Oh wow! I always love to try new recipes because I love cooking and this one is so perfect to try.
Same here, Neyl, I am always tying something new.
This looks absolutely delicious. I really need to go out and get me another cast iron skillet. Haven’t had one since my separation from my ex. I love how well they cook and sear steak.
I think you should, David!
This looks like such a hearty meal! I love the idea of using balsamic on beef.
I love it too, Elaine!
We love steak at home! but I never made balsamic glaze and this sounds so tasty! I will try it!
