– If the steak is thicker than 1-inch, you may need to increase the cooking time.
– You can also add other herbs and spices to the skillet, such as rosemary, oregano, paprika, or red pepper flakes.
– You can also add 1/4 cup of red wine or beef broth to the skillet while the steak is cooking.
– If you prefer a sauce, you can make a quick pan sauce by adding 1/4 cup of beef broth to the skillet after the steak is cooked, and then reduce the liquid by half before serving.
