Ingredients

  • 4 beef steaks (such as ribeye or sirloin)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare the Steaks

  1. Season Steaks: Pat the steaks dry with paper towels and season generously with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Heat Oil: In a large skillet or cast-iron pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until hot.
  3. Cook Steaks: Add the steaks to the skillet and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, depending on your desired level of doneness. For medium-rare, cook to an internal temperature of 135°F (57°C). Remove the steaks from the skillet and let them rest on a plate, covered with foil.

Step 2: Prepare the Garlic Shrimp Sauce

  1. Melt Butter: In the same skillet, add the butter and let it melt over medium heat.
  2. Sauté Garlic: Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute, until fragrant.
  3. Add Shrimp: Add the peeled and deveined shrimp to the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn pink and are cooked through. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside.
  4. Add Broth and Cream: Pour in the chicken broth and heavy cream, stirring to combine. Bring to a simmer.
  5. Add Parmesan and Seasoning: Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens, about 5-7 minutes.
  6. Return Shrimp: Add the cooked shrimp back to the skillet and stir to coat them in the creamy garlic sauce.

Step 3: Serve

  1. Top Steaks: Place the rested steaks on serving plates. Spoon the rich creamy garlic shrimp sauce over each steak.
  2. Garnish: Garnish with freshly chopped parsley.

Cooking Notes and Tips

  • Steaks: Choose high-quality steaks such as ribeye or sirloin for the best flavor and tenderness. Ensure the steaks are at room temperature before cooking for even cooking.
  • Shrimp: Use large shrimp for this recipe. Ensure they are peeled and deveined for ease of eating.
  • Sauce: To make the sauce thicker, let it simmer a bit longer until it reaches your desired consistency. For a thinner sauce, add a bit more chicken broth.

Variations

Spicy Garlic Shrimp Sauce

Add 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes to the garlic and butter for a spicy kick.

Lemon Garlic Shrimp Sauce

Add 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of lemon zest to the sauce for a bright, citrusy flavor.

Herb-Infused Garlic Shrimp Sauce

Add 1 teaspoon of dried thyme or rosemary along with the Italian seasoning for additional herb flavor.
