Spaghetti Steak Recipe
Let's talk a little about how to cook a good steak. These are a few pointers to remember and use, there is a lot of information on the internet when it comes to cooking (or most things really) some good and some not so much. We each have our own induvial style to doing things so use what works for you by all means but there are some thing that are standard.
Room temperature steak - We are talking about cooking the perfect steak that is full of flavor, juices and tenderness so the meat must be room temperature.
Salt - Salt your steak just before you cook it or it can toughen it sits in salt for long.
Butter - You can cook your steak in a dry pan and my husband always uses this method. I prefer using butter for that extra flavor. Sometimes I also go with butter and olive oil but because the spaghetti already had olive oil there was no need.
How To Bring Meat To Room Temperature
- Simply remove the meat from the fridge a few minutes before you start cooking it, on the basis that it's fresh meat.
- If the meat is frozen, then you must take it out the freezer the night before to thaw it in the fridge in order to bring it to room temperature.
- Don't remove meat from the freezer and leave it on the kitchen counter or sink for more than 2 hours because this leads to bacteria forming. Nor should you be leaving meat in water to defrost. Any bacteria that may have been there before freezing will now be given the chance to mulitply.
- Conclusion: The less time your meat is out the fridge, the better.
How To Cook Steak Perfectly
When you lay your steak down into the pan you should hear a sizzle to know that you are getting even cooked steak. Another reason why you should cook it at room temperature is for even cooking. When you lay your steak down into the hot pan, always start with the end of the steak closest to you. This way, should you not hear the sizzle you can remove it and wait for the pan to heat.
If you watch my steak videos you will see that I always start with the end closer to me, I let it touch the pan, hear the sizzle and then lay it down. This is a safe method to make sure you have enough time to move the steak without ruining the whole thing.
How To Lay Your Steak Into The Pan
Always hold it (safer with tongs even though sometimes I use my hands) at the end and lay it away from you. So in other words down away from you not down toward you. Why? It's simply a safer method for any splattering oil.

Spaghetti Steak Recipe
- 200 grams spaghetti cooked as per packet instructions
- 2 tbsps butter unsalted
- 3 cloves fresh garlic
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- pasta/chicken spice
- 2 steaks room temperature sirloin steak
- salt and black cracked pepper to taste
- Add the oil to a non stick pan on low to medium heat and add the garlic cloves. Cook till light golden brown and then add the spice. Stir the spices into the garlic and oil while cooking, keep stirring for about 10 seconds and then add the spaghetti. Use a pair of tongs to lift and swirl the spaghetti into the garlic, butter and spice mix. Try and work quickly and remove it from the heat immediately or it will dry. Set it aside.
- You can use the same pan or you can use a skillet to heat and melt the butter.
- Season your room temperature steaks and place then straight into the hot pan. It's always best to season just before cooking and not let it sit in salt or it can toughen.
- Your stove should be on medium to high heat but if it's over hot, then use medium heat. We want the pan hot but not hot enough to burn the meat. Okay, so place your seasoned steak down into the pan and you should hear a sizzle. See my notes in the post for more on this.
- Cook the steak without turning for 4 to 5 minutes for a medium to well done steak. Then turn it over and if you want to render the fat, hold it with a tongs fat side down into the butter just for a few seconds then put it back down to the side that has not yet done it's 4 minutes. The stove can now be on medium heat to cook finish.
- Just before the last minute or so, use a spoon to scoop the oil onto the steak (don't turn it over) just the one side is good.
- Take it out, let it rest for 5 minutes to release the juices and then place it over the spaghetti. For optimal taste and flavor, put your stove back on, slice the steak and toss the slices back into the oil for a couple seconds and then pour that left over oil with the steak slices over your pasta.
- Finish with cracked black pepper and a sprinkle of pasta seasoning.
