But minute steaks, while inexpensive, are quite drab simply fried up
Today we will look at a different way of cooking them that is very tasty and is really fast and easy.
First, take the steaks and salt and pepper them to taste. I like to use a good coating of both. Let them sit out at room temperature (covered of course) for 30 minutes.

Heart up some extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) in a large frying pan until quite hot and, when ready, fry the steaks 15-30 seconds a side depending on the thickness.
Despite being called minute steaks, when making them this style do not cook them for a full minute a side! That will make them essentially taste like leather.
When done, let them sit for a minute or so and then serve with lemon wedges and cover in lemon juice to taste. Again, I like a lot of lemon!
As a side I like to have these with mushrooms sauteed in EVOO for about five minutes. I usually season these with about a tablespoon of soy sauce and some french fry seasoning, though you can simply salt-and-pepper them.
This dish is quick and tasty -- and not painful for the pocketbook!
Enjoy with a red wine, salad and, as an added treat, some nice cheese.
