for steak caprese
Remove steaks from the fridge and pat with paper towels to remove excess moisture. Leave to come up to room temperature.
Toss the tomatoes with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Preheat your 26cm skillet (or dual handled pan) over medium-high heat, about 5 minutes.
Season steaks on all sides with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Bring your oven rack to the highest level and set the grill to high.
Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the skillet and sear the steaks for 4 minutes per side. Depending on the thickness of your fillet, you may need to sear the sides as well.
Remove steaks and set aside to rest.
Reduce heat to medium, add tomatoes and cook undisturbed for 2-3 minutes. Stir the tomatoes and cook for 2 additional minutes. Remove from heat.
Slice filets into 1cm strips.
Layer the beef strips with mozzarella slices on top of the tomatoes and set the skillet in the oven.
Grill for 1-2 minutes or more, depending on desired doneness.
Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle with salt and cracked pepper.
Top with basil and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
