This week's recipe uses the Cajun Blackened Seasoning Blend to create one of the best steaks you have ever tasted! With just a few simple ingredients and steps, you can make a steak that is big on flavor and that tastes so perfect - you will not need steak sauce or any other additions. This recipe uses a steak for the meat, however, you can use the same recipe for a Cajun Blackened Tuna Steak, Shrimp, or Chicken. This is a delicious recipe for cooking meats with bit of a spicy-New Orleans flavor. You've got to try this one!
1 (about 1/2 pound) good steak - recommend a Ribeye Steak;
4 Tblspns Olive Oil;
2 tsp minced garlic;
2 Tblspns Cajun Blackened Seasoning Blend.
Cover the steak (both sides) with 2 Tblspns of Olive Oil. Sprinkle the minced garlic over both sides of the oiled steak. Rub the Blackened Seasoning on each side of the steak until just covered. Refrigerate the prepared steak for about 3 hours. To cook the steak, heat the 2 remaining Tblspns of oil in a heavy skillet (I use an iron frying pan ). Heat the oil on medium-high heat for about a minute before adding the steak. Place the steak in the pan and cook for about 5 minutes on each side (or until desired degree of doneness). NOTE: Steak with Blackened Seasoning may smoke a bit when cooking. Once the steak has been cooked on both sides remove it from the pan and let it stand for about 5 minutes before serving.
