Steak of choice
2-3 Tablespoons of butter
3 Sprigs of Thyme
Pepper (Preferably from mill)
Cast Iron Skillet
Pat dry any moisture on steak and let stand 30 minutes at room temperature.
Season steak with salt and pepper evenly over both sides (massage in to make sure that flavor gets down into the meat).
Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat pan . Add steak to pan; cook 3-5 minutes on each side or until browned.
Reduce heat to medium-low; add butter, thyme, shallot, and garlic to pan. Tilt pan around so butter spreads evenly. Then toward you so the butter pools. Cook for a few minutes, basting steak with butter every few seconds.
Remove steak from pan; cover loosely with foil and let stand 10 minutes to rest. **Reserve butter mixture. You’ll place this over the steak when serving.
Remove steak from foil, discard thyme, keep shallots and garlic to top steak with (thats what I do). Then spoon desired amount of butter mixture over the steak and enjoy!
