Delicious pan-seared flat iron steak generously coated in pesto sauce.
flat iron steak
can use flank if you can't find a flat iron
might need more depending on the size of your steak
Remove steak from package and pat dry with paper towels.
Generously salt and pepper both sides of the steak, and then coat with about 1/4 cup of pesto.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt butter in a large oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat.
Once butter has melted, place steak in the skillet.
Sear for about 7-8 minutes and then turn the steak oven and sear the other side for about 5 minutes. Then place the steak in the oven to finishing cooking for 3-6 minutes, depending on how done you like your steak. The longer you bake it, the more well-done it will be.
After the steak finishes in the oven, remove it from the pan and let it rest on a cutting board for 3-5 minutes. Coat the steak with the remainder of the pesto sauce before slicing. You can reserve some of the pesto to top the sliced steak right before serving.
