T-Bone Steak with Green Beans

Beef steak is delicious when cooked properly. Every one has a favourite kind of steak and its T-bone for us.
I usually serve it with different side options like potatoes, mushrooms, green beans, spinach, fresh salad, garlic bread etc.
Thickness of the steak depends on your choice, i normally go for 3/4 inch of thickness. cooking time also varies according to your liking of done-ness of the steak. For 3/4 inch thickness you need 15-18 minutes of Cooking time for medium rare and 20-22 minutes for well-done.


T-Bone steak                 1   3/4 -1 inch thick
Salt                                2 big pinches
Black pepper                 2 pinches
Olive Oil                        1 tbsp
Worcestershire Sauce    1 tsp
Soy Sauce                     1 tsp
Lemon juice                   1 tsp

For the Green Beans

Green beans                  1 cup
Butter                            1 tsp
Salt                               1 pinch
Chili Flakes                    according to taste (optional)
Garlic clove                   1


Using a paper towel dry the steak. Mix worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and lemon juice and apply all over the steak. Let rest for at 30 minutes. Drain and pat dry.
Preheat your oven at 400.
Heat a heavy bottom skillet on medium high. Rub olive oil on both sides and sprinkle salt and pepper on both side of the steak.
When skillet turns hot, put the steak in. Do not touch until you can see edges getting nice golden colour around 5-7 minutes. Flip and brown on the other side around 4-6 minutes.
Transfer steak in an oven proof dish if your skillet is not oven proof.
Put the pan in the oven and let cook until the desired done-ness is achieved. Cooking time for well done would be 10-12 minutes in the oven.

For the beans, trim the edges and wash.
Add butter in the pan let melt. Add chilli flakes if using. Add chopped garlic clove and cook till it softens.
Put washed beans and sprinkle salt. Pour 1/4 cup of water and cover. Let steam for 5-8 minutes until beans are bright green in colour. Beans should be tender but still crisp.
Serve steak and beans with brown butter parsley potatoes.
