Tomato Herbed Steak Recipe With Garlic Ingredients

Tomato-Herbed Steak Ingredients:

16 ounce top loin steak beef
1 cup tomatoes, chopped
2 teaspoon fresh basil, snipped
½ cup green onions or scallions
Cooking spray
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoons freshly ground black pepper


  1. Choose lean cuts of beef and trim all the visible fat from it. Cut the steak into half to get about 4 pieces. Sprinkle all the pieces with the freshly ground black pepper and  the salt, leave aside.
  2. Lightly coat a large heavy unheated skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat the skillet over medium to high heat for a minute then reduce the heat. To the hot skillet, add the steaks and cook until desired doneness over medium to low heat. For medium to rare doneness, allow it to cook for about 10 to 15 minutes and for medium doneness allow cooking for about 15 to 18 minutes. An instant read thermometer when inserted in the thickest part of the steak should register 145 degree Fahrenheit for medium to rare doneness and 160 degree Fahrenheit for medium doneness. Turn the steaks occasionally or halfway through the cooking time to ensure even doneness from all the sides.
  3. Remove the steaks from the skillet when done and keep them covered so that they remain warm.
  4. To the same hot skillet, stir in the chopped green onions and snipped fresh basil. Cook and stir for about 2 to 3 minutes or until green onions are tender yet crisp. Add the tomatoes to the skillet and heat the mixture through. To serve, place one steak piece each in 4 different serving platters. Spoon the hot tomato mixture over the steak and serve immediately. This recipe makes 4 servings.
