This easy Tri-Tip Steak is one of the tastiest and juiciest you’ll ever make. Cooked stove top in a cast iron skillet, with simple herbs, it's bursting with the most incredible flavor. And this no-fuss recipe comes together in less than 20 minutes, making it ideal for busy weeknights.
Heat a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in a large cast iron skillet or other heavy-duty skillet over medium-high heat.
Combine the salt, pepper, garlic powder, and rosemary in a small bowl. Blot off the steaks with paper towels. Rub the salt mixture on all sides of the steak and place in the hot skillet. Sear steak on both sides, approximately 2 minutes per side.
Cook for another 2-3 minutes for more well done steaks. (For thinner steaks, reduce cooking time by 3-5 minutes).
Remove steaks from skillet and loosely cover with aluminum foil. Rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. To serve, transfer them to a cutting board and cut steaks with a sharp knife in thin slices against the grain for more tender results. Enjoy!
