Lemon Garlic Steak (Chuck Blade)

Lemon Garlic Steak (Chuck Blade)Who ever said steak can’t buy happiness?!

This steak sure can. For a few minutes at least, while you devour it..

If you’re looking for a quick and delicious recipe to make with those steaks you have on hand then you must try this super easy yet flavorful lemon garlic steak recipe. I used beef chuck blade steaks but any other cut works great.

This recipe is all about the lemon and garlic (okay.. and butter too..). Go ahead and dice up your garlic then rub it on the steak along with some salt, pepper, and paprika for a little extra kick.

Squeeze some of the lemon on the steak then pop it on a HOT heavy duty pan that’s already been coated with a tablespoon of butter and more garlic of course. Cook the steak no more than 2-3 minutes on each side on medium-high heat.

Tip: Remember to keep the heat high so it can seal in the moisture and give the outside of the steak a nice dark crispy crust. Lemon Garlic Steak (Chuck Blade)

    I’m making this tonight, but for the life of me, I can only find use for the 1T butter but not the 2T (?). Any idea? Also if you click on “jump to the recipe” it takes you to the page, but at the bottom it gives the incorrect site name: gimmdelicious.Com vs GIMMeDELICIOUS.com. Just thought they’d like to know


    Made it tonight and it was delicious thank you for giving me a recipe to use up some leftover chuck from a pot roast


    I am looking forward to trying this tonight. After reading the comments as well I am using some more salt, pepper, and paprika in the rub mix and I am also going to try to add a little bit of ginger. I think it should bring the lemon out perfectly.


    This was wonderful! I have picky eaters, so some steaks had to stay on the pan longer (on a lower heat) than others but everyone was happy.


    This recipe was delicious. Thank you for being simple and for the pictures, those really put everything together.


    Just had three 13-15 year old girls clean the plate and ask for a bit more! An easy quick recipe with a whole bunch of flavor! Thanks so much!



    Family loved it, but had to add more garlic, more lemon juice, more of everything really, or then it really is just regular steak.


    I made this tonight. It was easy and quick. The steak was quite tender. There just was not a lot of flavor other than cooked steak. I followed the directions exactly and used the paprika. It was not that it was bad, I was just hoping for more flavor.


    This steak looks so juicy and flavorful!
