Ingredients

  • 1 Frozen Grass-Fed Steak whatever cut you want
  • 3 Tbsp Grass-Fed Butter or Ghee
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper to taste
  • 1 large Yellow or Sweet Onion
  • 4 slices Bacon

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200°F.
  • Heat a large oven-safe skillet, preferably cast-iron, over high heat. Add butter or ghee when the skillet is hot.
  • Salt and pepper one side of the steak. I like to use a heavy hand on the salt, helps the flavor and adds a nice crust. Put the steak, seasoned side down, in the hot skillet. Do not move it around, let a nice crust form as it sears.
  • While the first side is searing, salt and pepper the other side of the steak. After a minute or two, check to see that the first side of the steak is seared nicely, and if it has, flip the steak.
  • After another minute or two, put the skillet in the preheated oven. Set the timer for 30 minutes. This is what I do for a steak about 1" thick.
  • Start checking the internal temp at about 30 minutes. I really like my steaks rare (120°-125° internal temp) or medium-rare (130°-135° internal temp). Remove the skillet from the oven when your steak has reached the desired doneness.
  • While the steak is cooking in the oven, quarter and slice your onion. Cut the bacon into 1/2"-ish pieces. In another skillet, add the bacon.
  • Turn on the burner to medium and start to cook the bacon. When it's almost done, not yet crispy, add the sliced onions. Saute until translucent and golden.
  • Serve with your deliciously cooked steak.
