The Perfect Garlic Butter Steak
|Prep:||Cook:||Yield: Serves 4 people||Total:|
The perfect dish for garlic and meat lovers. This is how I make the perfect steak!
- 4 lbs sirloin steak (try to have it at room temperature)
- 4 tbsp avocado oil
- Sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
- For the garlic butter
- 1 stick organic unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup dried parsley flakes
- 2 tbsp dried basil leaves
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of pepper
- For the garlic butter:Combine butter, parsley, basil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.
- Transfer mixture to sheet of foil. Make sure all sides of butter are evenly coated in other ingredients. Then, roll into a log.
- For the steak:Place a medium-sized pan on medium-high heat.
- Wash and dry both sides of steak. Then, drizzle with avocado oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Place steak into the middle of the pan and let cook for 1 minute.
- Flip steak and cook for another minute.
- Tilt the pan away from you so that the oil and juices run down to one side. Use it to sear the edges of the steak until they are colored like the rest of the meat.
- Lower heat to medium. Continue flipping steak in 1 minute intervals until desired wellness is reached, about 4-5 times for medium rare.
- Add desired amount of garlic butter into the pan. Let it melt completely into the pan.
- Flip steak about 2-3 more times to let it soak in the butter.
- Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes.
- You're done! Enjoy your perfect steak!
I like to plate it with all of the oil, butter, and juices from the pan, but it's up to your personal preference.
