Pan-Fried Beef Steak Recipe

I never decided on this post as I am myself new in Steak area. My husband loves it. So I tried it for him twice in our new apartment. Last time I used no oil and made it in the oven. This time, I made up my own concoction which was inspired from different recipes on the internet. I took it with me at Iftar Pot Luck and it was a success. When I shared its picture on my Insta Stories, I got way too many requests asking for its recipe. So I’m sharing it here on my blog today.

Marination time:

At least 3 hours or overnight

Preparation time:

30 minutes


Ingredients for Steaks:

  • 4 slices of Beef Steak
  • 1 tsp Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Soya sauce
  • 2 Table spoons Steak Sauce (If you don’t have it, use BBQ Sauce)
  • 1 Table Spoon Worcestershire sauce
  •  1 Table spoon lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala powder
  • 1 tsp Black pepper powder
  • 2 Table Spoons chopped/sliced mushrooms
  • 1 Table spoon Tomato Ketchup
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Method for Steaks:

  • Marinate beef steak in all the above ingredients for at least 3 hours
  • Make sure you pierce the steak with fork while mixing it in the marination
  • Put about 3 Table spoons of oil in a frying pan on Medium heat
  • Add only the steaks in the pan but keep the marinate aside
  • After 2 minutes turn them over. Till you get a good colour
  • Decide whether you want the steaks rare, medium rare, medium or well done. I chose well done
  • Take them out once beef is done on a newspaper
  • Dap the steaks with paper towel to remove excess oil
  • Add steaks in the serving dish
  • Add steak sauce on top of the steaks and serve hot with preferably some mashed potatoes/steamed vegetables


Ingredients for sauce:

  • Sliced onions – 1 small onion
  • Sliced Garlic cloves – 2 cloves
  • Green chillies/Jalapeno chilly – 1 tsp chopped

Method for Sauce:

  • In a small pan, add 2 tsp cooking oil
  • Add sliced onions and garlic and let it simmer on medium heat till onions are slightly softer but not golden
  • Add all the remaining marinate in the sauce
  • Add chopped green chillies/Jalapeno chilies and pour the sauce over beef steaks

Okay so I took out the time for you guys and wrote the recipe down. Now I need you to try it out and write down your comments/feedback below. Looking forward. Have a great iftar!
