Steak Crostini – a simple steak crostini recipe with goat cheese, fresh basil, seared sirloin steak and balsamic glaze!



Goat Cheese Spread:

  • 6oz soft goat cheese
  • 12 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves


  • 1 baguette cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • olive oil


  • 1 6oz Country Natural Beef Top Sirloin Steak (room temp)
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Balsamic glaze (store-bought or homemade)


  1. Let steak sit out and come to room temp.
  2. Meanwhile, combine Goat Cheese Spread ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Place baguette slices on baking sheet and brush with olive oil.
  4. Place under broiler (watch very closely)* until golden brown. Set aside.
  5. Pat steak dry with clean paper towel and season generously with kosher salt and ground black pepper. 
  6. Bring cast iron skillet to medium-high heat and add a tablespoon of olive oil (or avocado oil). Swirl to coat the pan. 
  7. Add steak to the pan and cook 2 minutes and then flip. Continue cooking 2-3 minutes per side and flipping until the internal temperature has reached 125-130 degrees F. (for medium-rare) using an internal meat thermometer. Or you can wait until it reaches 140 degrees F. for a medium steak. 
  8. Once steak has reached your desired temp, remove and let rest 10 minutes.  Thinly slice steak.
  9. Once you are ready to prepare your crostini add some Goat Cheese Spread to a piece of crostini. Place part of a basil leaf on top and then a slice of steak. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with a little extra kosher salt and ground black pepper. 
  10. Serve and enjoy! 


  • Steak Rub: you could also try out this Steak Rub instead of salt + pepper.
  • Make Ahead: you can make the Goat Cheese Spread and Homemade Crostini ahead of time. Place the Goat Cheese in the fridge, covered. Place the crostini in a silicone bag, seal and set out on the counter. You can also make the seared steak ahead of time, just slice and place in an airtight container and leave in the fridge until ready to use. 
  • Sliced Steak: ensure your steak is thinly sliced so it is easier to bite through. 
  • Internal Temp of Steak: you are going to want to ensure you use an internal meat thermometer to track the internal temperature. 
  • Gluten-Free: to make this gluten-free use a gluten-free baguette.
