Instructions

In a large skillet, combine steak and olive oil. Stir in the seasonings in order to flavor the meat while it’s cooking.

Seasoned sirloin steak

Cook on medium-high heat for about 3-4 minutes until the steak is seared and mostly cooked. It’s important to cook the meat with spices and seasonings for the most flavor. You can always substitute the steak with ground beef, chicken, ground turkey, or your protein of choice!
