Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The blackening spice on Jasmin's steak is perfect! It's a great mix of flavors without too much heat. What makes this steak, though, is the sweet potato compound butter. It's so good, I'm going to find other ways to use it. No need to head to your favorite steakhouse when you can create a steakhouse quality meal at home!


1 Tbsp
smoked paprika
1 tsp
cayenne pepper
2 tsp
seasoning salt
1 tsp
garlic and herb seasoning

1Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Heat a cast iron skillet on medium high heat with a little olive oil. Mix all ingredients of blackened spice, coat evenly all of the steaks with spice.
2With the pan very hot, sear each side dark (not burnt but dark brown) for 2 minutes each side. Remove from heat and finish in oven 7-10 for medium to medium well.
