Succulent Steak with Zesty Lemon and Capers











Elevate your dinner with this delicious Steak with Lemon and Capers recipe. Perfectly cooked steak, infused with the zesty tang of lemon and the unique flavor of capers, creates an unforgettable meal. Ideal for a special occasion or a sophisticated weeknight dinner.


Step 1: Preparing the Steak

Begin by tenderizing your steak to ensure it cooks evenly and soaks up all the flavors. Using a meat mallet, lightly pound the steaks to a consistent thickness. This not only enhances the texture but also shortens cooking time.
Pro Tip: Place plastic wrap over the steak to avoid splattering.

Step 2: Coating and Sautéing

Mix the flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Coat both sides of the steaks evenly with this mixture. In a skillet, melt the butter with olive oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the steaks and cook for about 4 minutes on each side until they reach a golden-brown perfection. This searing locks in the flavors and gives the steak a beautiful crust.
Pro Tip: Ensure your skillet is fully preheated for that perfect sear.

Step 3: Creating the Sauce

After removing the steaks, add minced garlic to the same pan and sauté for about a minute until fragrant. Deglaze the pan with wine and lemon juice, scraping up any flavorful bits left from the steak. Simmer for 5 minutes to allow the sauce to reduce and thicken slightly, then stir in the capers. This step infuses the sauce with a tangy, savory flavor that perfectly complements the rich steak.
Pro Tip: Use a wooden spoon for effective scraping and stirring.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

Return the steaks to the pan, coating them in the sauce. Cover and simmer on low heat for 4 minutes to allow the steaks to soak up the flavors of the sauce. This final simmer ensures the steaks are juicy and flavorful, fully marrying the zesty lemon and briny capers with the richness of the steak.
Pro Tip: Let the steaks rest for a few minutes before serving to retain their juices.
