Our favourite way to pan fry steak! Using minimal oil and Billies Peppered Salt, this technique creates a magical crust and stays nice and juicy… delicious!


  • Steak - we like ribeye for its juiciness and flavour, you will need approx 150 g per serving. Bring to room temperature before cooking.
  • Billies Peppered Salt
  • Oil for frying (we like The Good Oil)
  • Butter
  • Garlic Cloves, lightly crushed (optional for an extra flavour punch)


  • Pat dry using paper towels to get a perfect sear and reduce oil splatter.
  • Season generously – just before cooking steaks, sprinkle both sides liberally with Billies Peppered Salt.
  • Preheat the pan on medium and brush with oil. 
  • Add steaks to the pan and sear each side for 3-4 mins until a brown crust has formed. 
  • Use tongs to turn steaks on their sides and sear the edges for approx 1 min per edge.
  • Add butter and garlic cloves (optional) to the pan, melt the butter and tilt the pan, spooning the butter over the steaks
  • Cook to your desired doneness.
  • Remove steak and rest 10 minutes before slicing against the grain and serving.


  • For best results use either a heavy stainless or cast iron pan.
  • Don’t overcrowd the pan, cook steak in batches of 2 at a time.
