Pan Fried Strip Steak Dinner

NY Strip Steak pan fried medium rare please!
I will never forget my first juicy steak that was made by my lovely grandmother. Perfectly charred and tasty every time, seasoned with only salt and pepper, filling up the air with the most delicious aroma. She only ever used her favorite well seasoned cast iron skillet ( god knows how long she had it ). 
I wonder which of us sister owns it now hmmmm? they should be so lucky,

Here sharing a quick and easy steak dinner.

2 Strip Steak
Remove from fridge and let it sit in room temperature for about 10-15 mins.
After that, season well with salt and pepper 

Roast Onion and Tomatoes
While the steak is coming to room temperature. Heat oven to 375.
Slice tomatoes and onion, season with salt, pepper, oregano and a drizzle of olive oil.
Pop in the oven and let it roast for 30 mins- I like to check on them at 20 mins

Add the steak to a heated pan with oil.
They were a little less then a inch thick so i fried them for 3 mins on each side.

Pan fried strip steak medium rare 
 with rice,  roasted tomatoes & onions
and sugar snaps.
I love having steak with rice, 
as you cut into the steak with the rice soaking up the tasty juice, soo good.
Very juicy and tender with sweetness of the veggies.
Who is having steak tonight?

I love a good steak, but being a Texan, I can count on one hand how many I've cooked indoors. Grill!

I love a good steak but I'm hopeless in cooking. I tried recently and everyone at home complained....too tough! :( They shouldn't complain if they don;t cook, right? :P Have to learn again :)
