Japanese Style Garlic Steak

Japanese Style Garlic Steak made on a cast iron with savory garlic butter sauce that tastes and looks like it came from a restaurant.  A perfect steak every time!

This Japanese garlic steak is amazing!  I’ve always loved how Japanese steak houses make their steak and I can confidently say that this recipe tastes just like it if not better!

When I make this dish for my family, I always tend to add a little extra garlic and they love it! So if you are a garlic lover like myself, feel free an extra clove or two.

What’s Japanese Style Garlic Steak?

This steak recipe is pan seared in a cast iron pan and then finished off to preferred doneness in the oven.  Then it’s finished off with a Japanese style garlic steak sauce that’s a perfect savory balance of salty and sweet.

What cut of steak should I use for this Japanese steak recipe?

For this particular recipe, I chose to use New York steak cut just because it is my favorite cut of steak however, rib eye or filet mignon would work just as well too!

6) Add olive oil in a cast iron pan on high heat until lightly smoking.

7) Once the oil is lightly smoking, place steak inside the pan and cook each side for 2 minutes to sear.  Note – Don’t move or lift up the steak while searing.

8) After searing both sides, turn off the heat, pour sauce mixture over the steak and transfer the entire pan into the oven.

9) Cook steak in the oven for approx 3-7 minutes depending on preference and thickness of the steak.  Note – keep in mind the steak will continue to cook after you remove it from the oven, so I usually pull it out 5F before target temp.

Here are the internal temps for the desired doneness:

  • Rare                      120F
  • Medium-rare        130F
  • Medium                140F
  • Medium-well        150F
  • Well-done            160F

10) Transfer steak pieces onto a plate, pour leftover juices from cast iron pan on top of the steak and serve.
