Bachelor Chow: Pepper Steak

Bachelors, we all know one. Their kitchen usually consists of a kettle and microwave. I will keep this post nice and short, simple to follow, and most importantly, about meat.

Pepper steak, is a thick steak with crushed pepper encrusting the sides. You can find these in Gourmet Egypt (pack comes with 2), or just get normal steak and add lots of pepper in the marinade.

To marinate the steak (2 steaks, about 1 cm thick, total of 1/2 kg):

3 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp oil
1 Tbsp salt
1 crushed garlic clove or garlic powder.
2 Tbsp of your favorite steak sauce or BBQ sauce

Allow to marinate if you can over night, if not then for as long as you can. If you are in a rush 10 minutes will do, but it will not absorb as much flavor.

Heat 1 Tbsp of oil in a pan on med-high heat.

Place the steaks in pan, and allow to brown for about 4 minutes.

Flip, allow to sit for another 4 minutes. Less time if you like the steak rarer.
