Instructions Checklist
  • Season beef with adobo on both sides. Heat butter and oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add steaks to pan and cook until well browned and medium rare, flipping once, about 6 minutes. Transfer meat to a plate; cover with foil to keep warm.

  • Lower heat to medium. Add garlic to skillet and cook until light golden brown, about 1 minute. Add parsley and cook 30 seconds more.

  • Divide steaks evenly among serving dishes. Top steaks evenly with garlic mixture.

Cooking Tip from LA COCINA GOYA

Perfectly Seared Meat: For the most mouth-watering steaks, the key is searing the meat, that is, cooking it on a hot pan until a brown and crunchy crust develops. To make sure your steak sizzles, instead of steams, follow these simple steps:

First, pat the meat dry with a paper towel before seasoning with adobo. Next, "preheat" your skillet on the stove before adding the oil (it's hot enough when you hold your hand 6 inches from the pan, and your hand feels too hot after 5 seconds). Then, add the oil and butter. Once the butter melts and foams, and the oil gets shimmery, add the meat (two steaks at a time per 8-inch pan).

This combination of a hot pan, hot oil and dried meat that doesn't crowd the pan will guarantee a restaurant-quality sear.

Really good! I cooked the garlic in with the beef which was probably a bad idea. I thought I could save time. But I did sauté some squash in the leftover sauce, and it was amazing! Also, used some of the remaining sauce on the beef. Definitely add the sauce later! But the taste was yummy! Read More

I can't believe how gaga my husband went over this meal. It was good for sure, but he said it rivaled his absolute favorite meals. Served it with a quinoa/orzo side mix, and a broccoli slaw with an Asian dressing. This meal came together so fast, it's a kick recipe for a weekday night for a family. Used low sodium Adobo and it was still great. I need to print this out before I lose it - I hesitate to think how upset my hubby will be if I do! :) Read More

I have to admit, we were pleasantly surprised by these steaks! I was in "blackening" mode and was afraid I'd overseasoned them w/GOYA Adobo (minus pepper because I hate black pepper). I scraped a bit off and they were fine. We opted to grill the steaks, rather than pan fry because, well, just because. I recognized the importance of butter and warmed the butter/EVOO/garlic/parsley and added to the top of the steaks as they rested. Delicious. We have filets in the freezer w/this recipe's name all over them.... THANKS, GOYA! Read More

We usually grill steak so I followed all the tips in this recipe and really appreciated the footnotes. I usually don't season my steak with anything more than salt but my husband especially really liked them cooked this way. I have made filets following this recipe a couple times now and I really like it thanks for sharing! Read More

loved the flavor on the steak and to be honest we could've eaten the topping straight-up with a spoon! served with green beans but thinking next time a tomato-avocado salad with a lemony dressing to add a tangy compliment. Read More

This was the best steak I have ever made! Loved the crust on the outside but it was melt in your mouth tender on the inside. I let the seasoning sit on the steak for about an hour before cooking it. Thank you for the recipe! Read More
