Each steak works best if it is about 3/4 inches thick, especially when using a cast iron skillet. Coat each stake with the butter (or olive oil) and let sit while the rest of the butter/olive oil heats up in the pan. After about 10 minutes, coat each stake on both sides with the seasoning mix and let it cook for around 2 minutes uncovered. Afterwards, flip it over and cook the stakes until they are a nice pink color inside. The time that it takes to cook each stake determines on how large they are.
