We are about to make a delicious juicy tender steak along with some perfectly seasoned and seared shrimp .
This dinner is gonna be everything .
So without further ado , let's introduce these ingredients and get to cooking .
I have some beautiful rib eye steaks ready to go as well as some jumbo shrimp .
And in order to tie this delicious recipe together that we're about to make , we're gonna need some rosemary .
Of course , it should be fresh as well as fresh thyme , garlic , cloves , ground black pepper salt .
Now , for this particular recipe , I'm gonna be using kosher salt .
Of course , if you have regular salt , you can use that as well .
We also have some butter , garlic powder onion powder as well as oil cedar plank salmon seasonings , smoked Paprika Cajun seasoning .
And we have our broccoli as well as our potato because we're gonna be pairing a baked potato with this delicious dinner as well .
The first thing we're gonna do is work on our baked potato .
We need to get this bad boy in the oven only because it takes about 45 minutes to an hour to bake until it's nice and tender .
But first what we need to do is put some holes in there just like that .
Placing the holes in there is gonna help with releasing some of that heat .
We're also gonna add a little oil .
Yeah , we're just gonna massage our potato with the oil , make sure it's well coated and we are gonna place it in our aluminum foil , wrap it up 400 degrees .
About 45 minutes to an hour .
When you make this at home , you're gonna work on the potatoes first .
And during the last 30 minutes is when you're gonna work on your steaks and everything else .
If timing is up the essence and you don't have the time to allow your potatoes steak for an hour .
Here's a quick tip and trick what you need to do is take that potato .
Of course , you're gonna pierce it the same way we did and you're gonna add a little oil to it .
You're gonna place it in the microwave , allow it to spin in the microwave for about six to seven minutes .
And that would allow the pota to cook at least , if not half way through , at least three quarters of the way through making your timing in the oven much less .
So instead of your potato sitting in the oven for about an hour , it's only gonna be in there for about maybe I would say 30 to 40 minutes .
Let's work on our steaks .
First thing we're gonna do is I have some kosher salt .
We're gonna add the kosher salt to the steak just like that .
I love the kosher salt because it sits .
It just like literally hugs the steak .
All right .
We're gonna make sure we add enough because this is a big slab or should I say a thick slab of meat and we also gonna add our black pepper .
Add enough .
We're gonna take our hands and pat it in here because we want our salt and our seasonings to sit on the steak .
We're gonna flip it over .
We're gonna do the same thing .
And after you're done , if you're double dipping , this goes into garbage .
Of course , you're not gonna be using it for anything else .
You're not gonna put it back into the container , you're just gonna toss it .
And of course , our steaks are room temperature .
When we making steak , this is the best way to go .
You don't want it to be cold now that we added our salt and pepper .
We need to add some garlic powder because we want a steak to have some extra flavor .
If you have steak seasoning , of course , you can add some steak seasoning as well .
And we're also gonna add a little onion powder .
Turn it on over repeat the same process , of course .
And we're gonna add our last but not least our garlic and that's it , rub it all in and this is perfect .
We're gonna allow our steaks to sit out for about three minutes because I want all of that season to be absorbed within the steak moving right along .
And just in case you didn't realize I'm wearing two pairs of gloves , only because I want to have clean hands or gloves when I'm working with the shrimp , that's how you get the job done .
All right .
So the shrimp , we're gonna add just a tad bit of oil .
We're also gonna add some of my favorite salmon plank seasoning .
I had somebody asked me for it whether or not if this salmon plank seasoning contains any fish ingredients or any seafood ingredients and believe it or not , it doesn't .
We're also gonna add our smoked paprika .
It's just a complimentary season for seafood , but it does not have any uh seafood properties .
However , I also use it when I make my lemon pepper wings .
So delicious .
We're gonna add our Cajun seasoning as you guys saw it .
I didn't overdo it .
I just added just enough because the occasion seasoning as well as the uh salmon plank seasoning does contain salt .
So it's not necessary to go in there and add any additional salt .
Just allow the other seasonings to do its thing .
Work its magic and make everything taste absolutely good .
Give it a good mix .
Everything is well coated .
These are gonna be absolutely delicious , perfect color .
Yes , indeed .
For our cast iron skillet , we're gonna add some oil after we add our oil .
We need our pan to be nice and hot .
We need this oil to come up to temperature in the description bar as well .
I'm gonna list different oil .
That's perfect for searing .
Once the oil is nice and hot , we're gonna place our steak into the pan and we're not gonna bother the steak .
We're gonna allow it to sit in the pan for about , I would say 60 to 90 seconds because we want that perfect sear .
So therefore you can't turn it over , back and forth .
You just gotta let it sit there and let it do its thing .
It's been about 60 to 90 seconds time .
For the moment of truth , we need to flip the steak over and see what's going on .
As you guys can see , it has a perfect sear , perfect crust going on .
This is absolutely what we're looking for , allow it to sear up another 60 to 90 seconds and then we are in business .
It's been about 90 seconds so far .
And as you can see , our steak has a perfect sea on the other side as well .
So what we're gonna do is we're gonna push the steak in the pan just a bit .
And at this point in time , I want you to turn your stove top up or lower that flame .
I'm going to add some butter .
However , for this particular steak recipe I'm gonna use , carry gold butter .
It's something about the curry gold butter that just brings a rich element of flavor .
Whenever you're making steak , once that butter starts to melt , we're gonna add our fresh time in our rosemary .
And you remember that garlic bulb that we had ?
What we're gonna do is we're gonna cut right into it .
We're gonna place that garlic into the butter and allow all of those fragrances to be released .
It's about that time .
What we're gonna do is we're gonna base our steak with that delicious garlic and herb butter .
We're gonna do it for about two minutes because we want our steak to pick up all of those wonderful flavors .
Oh , my goodness .
I'm telling you , just continue doing it , just continue basing the steak .
Once we're done , we're gonna place our steak into our 425 degree fa and height , of course , preheated oven and we're gonna allow our steak to cook through .
And by the time we take it out it is gonna be absolutely everything .
We are gonna add some oil to the skillet as well as some butter .
Once everything is melted , we are gonna add our shrimp because what it is time to sear these bad boys up .
What we're gonna do is we're gonna give our shrimp ample space .
But first we need to make sure that our pan is really nice and hot .
That's the only way you're gonna get the perfect sear .
Once the pan comes up to temperature , add the shrimp , give it ample space .
Allow the shrimp to sear for about maybe what one minute , check on it periodically , flip it on over , allow the other side to sear as well .
And as you can see , our shrimp is looking really good right now .
It's looking really , really good .
No , we gotta add a little greenery .
You know , veggies are good for the body .
So , what we're gonna do is put this broccoli right here .
We're gonna rinse it off really good .
And when we're done , we're gonna cut the stalk off .
The little stalky stalk just like that .
Get rid of it when it comes down to the broccoli .
Of course , you could break it up into bite size pieces or you can leave it the way it is .
I have a pot of hot water that's on a rolling boil and we are gonna add our broccoli to that hot water and we're gonna cook this broccoli until it's nice and vibrant .
That's the perfect indication that our broccoli is perfectly cooked .
Now , here's the thing .
If you want your broccoli mushy , the more you cook it is , the less vibrant it's gonna be we want our broccoli to stand out on the plate .
So I'm not gonna overcook it besides .
I want it to be nice and crunchy time for the best part .
Of course , it's time for staging .
Now , I don't want my broccoli to overcook .
So the first thing we're gonna put on our plates is our broccoli .
However , what we could do is we could actually add this broccoli to some cold water .
It's called blanching .
And what's gonna happen is it will stop the cooking process immediately , take our broccoli place .
It right here .
That looks nice , perfect color .
And of course , that's one of the reasons why I didn't want to cook it out too much because I wanted it to have that nice green vibrancy .
The more you cook it is the uh less color it's gonna have .
And that ain't cool , especially when you serve it .
You know what I mean ?
You want it to look its best .
All right , we have our baked potato right here and of course it's really hot .
So I suggest you go with the ultimate portion .
Let's cut into it and see what we're working with just like that .
And as you can see the knife glides right in , it's nice and tender perfect using the foil .
We're just gonna press it in like this .
That's perfect because of course , you don't want to burn your hands , do you ?
I would assume not .
And we have some butter , place it right in there , allow it to melt .
Let it pick up that nice buttery flavor .
You don't wanna try baked potato , do you ?
This is it .
Of course , if you want to add a little Sprinkle of kosher salt , you can just a little bit .
Not much .
I can also hit it off with a little bit of cream cheese .
If you prefer your baked potato with cheese , knock yourself out , add some cheese .
We're gonna hit it with a little parsley .
If you have chives , of course , you're gonna add chives and the start of the show .
Of course , we're gonna add our beautiful steak perfectly cooked .
Gonna add that rosemary on top for garnish and of course we have our shrimp right here .
We're gonna add it to the top just like that .
This is perfection , guys .
And the extra shrimp that we have , we could add it right there .
Why not ?
This is our plate .
We do what we wanna do , how we wanna do it .
Yeah , we're gonna take some of that butter sauce and we're gonna add it to the top just like that .
Uh-huh This right here is food porn like seriously , we're gonna add a little bit to our potato as well to make our potato taste even better .
Our garlic bulbs has been released .
Remember when we added it to the pan and it's seared and everything .
It's perfectly charred .
Both these garlic bulbs right here are gonna have so much flavor .
So guess what ?
We're gonna add it to our potato .
And of course , if you want to add a couple of the gar bulbs to the steak , you can , if you want to add it to the side where you can just like literally cut and eat and literally scoop up some garlic along with your meal .
Why not ?
I am telling you guys , it is gonna be so delicious .
If you wanna add some butter to your broccoli , you can , especially while it's nice and hot .
Anyway , without further ado , let's cut it into the steak and see what we're working with .
Check it out .
It's time for us to cut into our steak .
And this is perfectly cooked .
And of course , if you want to cook it differently as far as if you want it .
Well , medium rare or medium , I will definitely put the timing at the bottom as well as the temperature .
So that way you can't go wrong .
But this right here is everything absolutely delicious .
Just how I like it .
I surf and turf with our baked potato as well as our fresh steamed broccoli is done , guys .
Absolutely beautiful .
