  • 2 Striploin steaks
  • 1 tablespoon Minced garlic
  • ¼ cup Soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Oyster sauce
  • ½ cup Unsalted butter
  • 1 batch Bang bang sauce


  • Sear the steak: Season the steaks with salt and pepper on both sides. In a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, sear the steaks for 1 ½ minutes on each side in a thin layer of olive oil, until a crust has developed on each side.
    2 Striploin steaks
  • Cut the steak: While the steak is in the pan, use a small pairing knife to cut the steak into-sized pieces. The steak will still be undercooked in the middle, that is what you want!
  • Make the sauce: Add the butter, garlic, soy sauce and oyster sauce to the pan. Coat the steak, and let it continue to sear and cook in the sauce. For medium doneness, the steak will only need to sear in the sauce for 2-3 minutes.
    1 tablespoon Minced garlic, ¼ cup Soy sauce, 2 tablespoon Oyster sauce, ½ cup Unsalted butter
  • Serve: Serve with bang bang sauce on the sauce
    1 batch Bang bang sauce


Steak Cooking Times
  • Medium-rare steak: Approximately 2 minutes.
  • Medium steak: Approximately 3 minutes.
  • Well-done steak: Approximately 5 minutes.
Recipe Tips
  • Use fresh garlic!  While jarred garlic is convenient, the flavour is not the same as fresh.
  • Bring the steaks to room temperature before searing for best results.
  • Pat the steaks dry before searing to get the best possible sear on the exterior of the steaks.
