I cant take full credit for this one – but when you see kids cooking amazing filets in Master Chef Jr. – I got over my fear and got out the skillet.
Starting with a good cut of meat-Im blessed to have access to Sinking Creek Grass Fed beef. Sinking Creek Beef
Grass fed has a unique tenderness and sweet flavor.
- Kosher salt and black pepper
- Two sprigs fresh rosemary
- Two sprigs fresh oregano
- Tablespoon olive oil
- Two tablespoons butter
- Two cloves garlic-peeled and crushed
Secret is being ready. These cook fast and you want to be prepared. Have your sides ready to plate.
Steaks room temp. Out of fridge takes about 30 minutes.
Prep oven for425 degrees
Rub both top and bottom of steak with salt and pepper.
Black skillet high heat heat olive oil.
Sear one side- important you dont move- steaks for 4 minutes. Be patient and have faith.
At 4 minutes add butter to center as well as garlic and fresh herbs.
Flip steaks and quickly baste with butter and juices. Quickly place full pan into prepared hot 425 degree oven.
Bake 5 min rare 6-7 min med rare 8 min med.
Remove from pan and serve. Amazing!

I was raised on a large farm in a small community of Long Shop, Virginia. Just a stones throw from Blacksburg, Va and a short drive to the WV boarder. I grew up appreciating Appalachia cooking with low budgets and home grown veggies. What honestly tastes better than a warm tomato out of the garden sliced fat with salt and pepper? Maybe a bowl of good brown pinto beans and cornbread. Or even better grilled trout fresh caught from the creek!
My childhood was a dream... and what has made my passion for food- sharing good meals with good friends and loved ones.
My food always has a story and always in sizes to share.
I now have begun a new adventure with my love Jason, and we created the Bellman and Concierge LLC and reopened the beautiful Oaks Victorian Inn. A childhood home I knew well growing up and now saving for many to enjoy as a Boutique Bed and Breakfast. Cooking for guests and sharing traditions. Come visit us at
