Angus beef is known for its superb marbling, tenderness, and juiciness which makes the meat exceptionally tasty.
The term “Angus” refers to a breed of cattle that originated from Scotland.
Due to the cold winters, the cattle had to be sturdy enough to survive and hence they have high muscle content with great marbling qualities.
When choosing your Angus beef, look out for the USDA grading with “Prime” topping the quality scale and “Select” being leaner with less marbling.
“Choice” is in between and is a good option with the quality vs price trade-off.

Once you try this Angus beef steak recipe, you will think twice before spending exorbitant amount in a restaurant again.
- 2.5 lbs Angus rib-eye steak (or sirloin), cut to 1.5 inches
- 6 tbsp butter, unsalted
- 4 tsp olive oil, extra virgin
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- 4 cloves garlic, peeled
- 3 sprigs parsley
- red wine (optional)
- chicken or beef stock (optional)
- additional butter (optional)
- Lay a piece of paper towel on a plate. Place the rib-eye steak (at room temperature) on it.
- Season the top side of the steak with salt and pepper.
- Turn on the heat on your stove to the highest setting, we want the skillet to be hot to achieve a sear.
- While waiting for the skillet to be heated up, add the olive oil and coat the pan.
- Add the rib-eye steak onto the pan. Take note that the seasoned side should be touching the skillet.
- Season the other side of the steak with salt and pepper. Leave it for 2 minutes.
- With tongs, flip the steak and then add butter, garlic and parsley at the side of the skillet. We want the steak to cook for another 2 minutes.
- While the steak is cooking, use a spoon and keep basting the meat with the melted butter. Scoop the oil and pour it over the meat. We want to prevent the meat from drying out and also to add flavor to it.
- After 2 minutes is up, repeat the flipping and basting but at 30 seconds interval.
- Do a poke test (see note 4 below) and remove after around 5-6minutes. The steak should be medium rare. Feel free to adjust the cooking time to achieve your desired doneness.
- Place the steak onto a cutting board and let it rest for a few minutes before cutting it.
- (Optional) De-glaze the skillet with some red wine and stock, and let it simmer for a few minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to thicken for a simple pan sauce.
- When placing the steak onto the pan, place it down away from you so that you avoid getting splattered.
- We want the meat to be at most 1.5 inches thick because if not, it will take too long to cook evenly.
- Do not poke the steak with a fork to check doneness. Once you poke it, all the juices and blood will start to flow out and you end up with a dry steak.
- To do a poke test, open the palm of your relaxed hand and push the fleshy area below your thumb. This is your reference for raw meat.
Next, gently touch the tip of your index finger with your thumb. Now touch the same fleshy area. This is your reference for rare meat.
Repeat the same for each finger. Middle finger will give you a reference for medium-rare meat, which is what we are aiming for in this recipe.
The ring finger will give you reference for medium doneness, while the pinky will give you a reference for a well done meat.
- For a complete meal, you can add baked potatoes and asparagus to it!
