Steak: Marinade & Pan Frying

I think that it's rare that I ever make the same dish twice.
Well OK, I've been known to scrounge up some Hamburger Helper when I'm just not in the mood to be creative or to go to the grocery store.
So lately I've been trying new dishes.  Today is a steak marinade.  I have never made T-Bones before... how hard could it be?
The key of a good steak is the marinade.  This is a new one that I've never had.

What you need:
1 Tbs. Olive Oil + 3 Tbs. for frying
1 clove Garlic or 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
1 Tbs. Worcestershire
1 Tbs. Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 tsp. Onion Powder
1 Tbs. Yellow Mustard
1 Tbs. Soy Sauce
1/4 tsp. Pepper

What to do:
Add steak to  a Ziploc bag.

 Add ingredients to bag.
 Mix up!

* TIP:  This marinade doesn't make a lot at all.  It is much easier to mix it into its own bowl and then drizzle the steak with it.  I had a tough time getting the marinade throughout the T-bone steaks. 

 Add 3 Tbs. of olive oil to pan.  Make sure it's very hot before adding the steak.  
You want it to sear initially.
Cook the first side between 5-7 min and only about 4 min. on the other side.  This made the steak a nice Medium.

 When it's done, transfer to a piece of aluminum foil, cover up, and let sit for about 3 min -- it will cont. to cook in the foil.

*TIP:  You don't want to cut into the steak right out of the pan or all the blood and juices will flow right out of it and it will become very dry.


This is slightly burned as you can see.  My fault -- I turned my back on it chasing after the kids, Lol!
