Seared Steak with a Balsamic Glaze


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


    • I do too, Stephanie, as a matter of fact, today, I made Brussels sprouts with balsamic vinegar and it was delicious.

  1. I really do like balsamic vinegar. I normally have a reduction over salads but I’m sure it’s just as nice over meat.

  2. My other half would totally love this for sure. This kind of thing is right up his street – steak & Balsamic are winners xx

  3. 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.
