Seared Steak with Garlic Butter

Seared Steak with Garlic Butter
Serves 2

This meal screams date night to me. Short cut your life and order takeout fries from your favorite restaurant; personally I prefer really crispy shoestring fries. This not only tastes ideal with your steak but you won’t be frying or smell up your house. Pour with a big bodied red and invite a man over.

1 grass-fed boneless rib eye, about 1 – 1 ½ inches thick, at room temperature

Salt
1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2-3 gloves of garlic, smashed Few sprigs of thyme
2 tablespoons butter Maldon, optional garnish

Preheat oven to 350° F. Heat a medium ovenproof pan over medium high heat and add oil. Pay dry steak and season all sides WELL with salt. When the oil is almost smoking add meat and sear for 3-4 minutes per side. Flip and add garlic, thyme and butter to the pan. Pop in the oven and cook for additional 7-8 minutes or until the internal temperature reads 130° F.

Remove steak and rest on a board for at least 5 minutes. Slice against the grain and sprinkle cut sides with more salt (Maldon if you half) and spoon butter form pan overtop.

Cutting Board // $50   I have this cutting board at home and use it nonstop and more than any other board I have. It’s something about a square board that makes everything super clean and tight. As a young chef you’re taught to keep a clean workspace and this helps me mentally and physically do that.

Reformation Black Tank // $38   Classic, not to expensive, kinda basic but worth it. Looks fancy but it’s not, also great for a casual date night.

Lodge 17” Cast Iron Skillet // $134   Everyone needs a cast iron skillet. It’s the one tool/piece of equipment other than a knife I think everyone should splurge on and use - daily. Because the truth is if you take care of this (or that knife) they will last you a lifetime.
