From “The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook” by America’s Test Kitchen


  1. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  2. 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  3. 1 small garlic clove, minced
  4. 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  5. Salt and pepper
  6. 2 (6 ounce) beef cubed steaks
  7. 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  8. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Combine butter, parsley, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in bowl; set aside.

  2. Lay each steak between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound until roughly ¼ inch thick. Spread flour in shallow dish. Pat steaks dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Working with 1 steak at a time, dredge steaks in flour.

  3. Heat oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Lay steaks in skillet and cook until well browned on first side, about 3 minutes. Flip steaks and cook until well browned on second side, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain steaks briefly on paper towel-lined plate. Serve steaks with seasoned butter.
