i have a cooking blog that i post my recipes on. I use it as my recipe book
but heres my steak cooking tip. this is for 2 fairly thick strip steaks
about 30 minutes before cooking take teh steaks out of the fridge.
season with salt and pepper. (use more salt than you think youll need. make it rain )
preheat an oven to 500 and place a cast iron skillet in the oven. (you just want to get it blazing hot before cooking)
chop 1 shallot and some fresh rosemary
chop 3/4 stick of butter into slices
when ready to cook remove the skillet from the oven
place on the stove over high heat
melt 1 TBSP or 2 of butter
place the steaks in the skillet and let cook for 4 minutes without disturbing.
add the shallots rosemary and the remaining butter to the skillet
cook for another 7 minutes or so for medium rare. while its cooking use a spoon to baste the top of the steaks with the butter
let rest 5 minutes before serving
