  • 4 6 ounce, 1" ribeye or NY strip steaks
  • ½ cup chipotle seasoning (use our recipe or a store-bought blend)
  • ½ cup worcestershire
  • 4 tablespoons garlic (minced)


  • Place steaks on a large baking tray or cutting board, and thoroughly cover with chipotle seasoning on all sides, front and back.
  • In a plastic bag, add worcestershire and garlic. (Note: you may need to use more than 1 bag, depending upon the size of your steaks)
  • Add steaks to the bag, remove as much air as possible, then seal. Ensure that the marinade covers all sides of the steak.
  • Refrigerate the steaks for 6 to 8 hours.
  • Preheat a 12-inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add extra virgin olive oil and heat until it just starts to smoke.
  • Add steaks to the hot pan and sear approximately 4 minutes each side for medium-rare doneness.
  • Remove the steaks from the skillet and let rest for 5 to 6 minutes.

  • SUBSTITUTIONS: Use the seasoning mix and marinade on chicken, pork, seafood, or vegetables instead of steak. Cooking times will vary.
  • TOP TIPS: Always use a room temperature steak; Do not marinade your steak for more than 10 hours; Remove your steak 5 degrees cooler than your desired temperature and let the steak rest. The temperature will increase as it sits. 
  • SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Serve with a simple side salad, a blue cheese wedge salad, grilled or roasted vegetables, or a delicious casserole such as our zucchini carrot casserole. Top with roasted chili corn salsa.
