Course: Main Course
Keyword: Gluten Free, High Protein, Holiday Entertaining, Weeknight Meals

Author: Denise

Ingredients

  • 4 filets roughly 6-8 oz each⁣
  • Olive oil⁣
  • Kosher salt⁣
  • Black pepper⁣
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter⁣

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 420-425 degrees.⁣
  • Remove filets from refrigerator 20-30 minutes prior to cooking. It’s best to have steak at room temperature before starting to prepare to ensure that you get an accurate cook time.⁣
  • Drizzle top side of filets with olive oil. Season generously with salt and pepper. Flip and repeat. ⁣
  • Heat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat on stove top. Add unsalted butter to pan. Once butter has melted, turn heat to high. Quickly add filets to pan, searing for 2 minutes on each side. Watch timing closely as to not overcook. ⁣
  • After searing on both sides, quickly move to preheated oven. Set a timer for 5-6 minutes and ensure you don’t overcook. This will deliver a perfectly medium steak. Adjust time up or down by 1 minute if you want more rare or more cooked. ⁣
  • Remove from oven and let sit 3-5 minutes. Plate steak and add pat of herbed garlic butter to the top, right before serving.⁣ Serve with potatoes and veggies.

Herbed Garlic Butter

Keyword: Gluten Free
Servings: 4 servings
Author: Denise

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter softened ⁣
  • 3 garlic cloves⁣
  • ½ tsp kosher salt⁣
  • ¼ tsp black pepper⁣
  • 2/3 – ¾ cup fresh herbs I like a combination of sage, chives and thyme⁣
  • Zest of one lemon⁣

Instructions

  • Ensure butter is at room temperature, not melted. Ideally, you want it soft to the touch. Using a food processor, combine all ingredients. Pulse until well combined. Butter and herbs should be nicely incorporated with no large pieces of herbs remaining.⁣
  • Using a spatula, scrape butter out of food processor and place on sheet of wax paper. Using the ends and sides of wax paper, roll butter back into a log. Tape or fold ends down. Place in freezer until ready to use. When ready to use, slice into ½’ slice for top of steak or other meat.⁣
  • Any extra butter can be stored in a Ziploc bag and placed in refrigerator for 2-3 week
