Things to remember when making your steak

The pan must be hot
Don’t be afraid of using good fats or you end up with a non so tender & juicy steak
Do not overcook the steak please it’s like overcooked eggs, please no.
don’t repeatedly keep turning the steak around and over and NO. Just turn once and be done. It needs to cook evenly on both sides and you only toughen it by repetition.

How long should you cook your steak?

It depends are you using a rib eye steak or a more regular cut of meat like T-bone because depending how thick it is you need about 3 to 4 minutes a side for a thicker bigger steak.
This rib eye was done for about 3 minutes on each side because its a smaller steak. Even a bit less on the 2nd side.

What if you are not sure when to turn it over?

In that case use your tongs to gently lift it half way up and peep to see if its brown enough rather than turning it over completely. Remember that you are trying to maintain even cooking here.
