3 tablespoons unsalted butter


2 cloves garlic, minced

For the Creamy Garlic Sauce:


2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 cloves garlic, minced


1 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup beef broth

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1: Prepare the Steak



Season the steaks generously with salt and pepper on both sides.

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the steaks to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or adjust the cooking time to your preferred doneness.

Remove the steaks from the skillet and let them rest on a plate, covered with foil.

Step 2: Cook the Shrimp


In the same skillet, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter.

Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds until fragrant.

Add the shrimp and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn pink and opaque.

Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside.


Step 3: Make the Creamy Garlic Sauce


In the same skillet, add 2 tablespoons of butter and melt over medium heat.

Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds until fragrant.

Pour in the beef broth and bring to a simmer.

Reduce the heat to low and stir in the heavy cream.

Add the grated Parmesan cheese and stir until the sauce is smooth and creamy.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 4: Assemble and Serve


Place the rested steaks on serving plates and top with the cooked shrimp.

Drizzle the creamy garlic sauce generously over the steak and shrimp.

Garnish with fresh chopped parsley.

Serve immediately with your favorite side dishes.

Tips for Success


Doneness: Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the steak for your desired doneness: 130°F for medium-rare, 140°F for medium, and 150°F for medium-well.

Resting Time: Let the steak rest after cooking to ensure the juices redistribute throughout the meat for a more tender and flavorful bite.

Sauce Consistency: If the sauce is too thick, add a little more beef broth to reach your desired consistency. If it’s too thin, let it simmer for a few more minutes to thicken.

Enjoy this luxurious Surf and Turf meal that combines the rich flavors of steak and shrimp with a decadent creamy garlic sauce. Perfect for impressing your guests or treating yourself to a gourmet experience at home!
