I was having a busy day yesterday and wanted to cook a small sirloin steak. I preheated and oiled the skillet, patted dry my steak, got distracted by my dog, and put the steak in the skillet, unseasoned.
After searing I went to flip the meat and realized my error. In a panic I added my seasoning, flipped the steak over and went to season the now-seared side. It didn't stick to the meat well and in the end I ate a pretty bland steak.
If this happens again what can I do to recover from my error and save my meal?
