Chili Lime Skillet Steak

Great steak recipe!

Hubby brought home a present for me this afternoon – a nice rib eye steak. Other women get flowers; I get steaks. I’m a down-to-earth type of gal, so I’d actually rather have the steaks. I didn’t want to fire up the grill, and neither did the old man, so I decided to cook the beef in my black iron skillet. I wanted something with a bite, so I made the following steak recipe.

Sometimes as you’re reading my recipes, you’re probably going to think, “I dunno. Sounds kinda strange to me!” I understand, but just give it a try. For example, for part of the steak marinade, I used a little of the liquid from a jar of pickled jalapeno rings. It worked – I promise!

Another thing: I usually like my steaks cooked “Georgia style.” What’s that, you ask? Black on the outside and red on the inside.  Black and red are the colors for the University of Georgia football team, the Georgia Bulldogs. Go DAWGS!!

Holle’s Chili Lime Skillet Steak recipe

What you’ll need:

  • 1 steak
  • ½ teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons pickled jalapeno juice
  • Olive oil
  • Jalapeno pepper rings

Directions:  Rub both sides of the steak with chipotle, onion powder, and garlic powder. My steak was very lean, so I also rubbed a little olive oil in it. You might not need to do this.

Place steak in a pie plate or some other deep plate and pour both juices over it. Marinate in the fridge for about an hour.

If you want your steak a little charred on the outside like mine, heat your skillet over medium-high heat until it’s very hot. Drizzle a little olive oil in the pan, and brown your beef on both sides.

Just before the steak is done, toss a few pepper rings in the pan to brown and crisp. Serve the pepper rings on top of the steak. Serve with my Asparagus with Pepper Jack Sauce.
