HOLY YUM!!! Just looking back on these images while posting them, I’m drooling!!! I don’t typically cook a lot of steaks, but when I do… OHHH BABY! They are delicious! It took me a few years to “perfect” a good steak. I would constantly overcook them! What a shame! Growing up I would never eat anything with pink inside, but now… I love a steak practically still mooing. haha! These puppies were so simple to make, and very quick! So that is a win win for me!
Because of the move, I wasn’t able to plant my usual garden! boo! So this year I was absolutely NOT going to to without my herbs! So I was right in line at the farmers market to purchase one of these bad boys!
Isn’t the cutest? I love it! It has since blossomed even more.. Heaven! I purchased chives, rosemary, thyme, basil, parsley, and dill! This box with the chalkboard label was a total score! This recipe was the first that I was able to use my new herb box!
The herbed butter that I used with this recipe is a simple one that you can actually use on all sorts of stuff! So if you don’t use it all with this recipe, then save it and throw it on something else! This time around I used the butter leftovers with a whole chicken in the slow-cooker.
Delmonico Cut Steaks
Herbed Butter (recipe below)
1/4 teaspoon crushed black pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed sea salt
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
Place steaks onto grill or grill pan and sear on each side (approximately 3 minutes)
Turn heat down to low and cook slowly until internal temperature is to desired “done-ness”.
1 whole stick of unsalted butter- room TEMPERATURE
2 cloves of garlic- minced
2 tablespoons of fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon of fresh parsley- chopped
1 tablespoon of fresh basil- chopped
combine all ingredients into a small mixing bowl. once mixed, roll in your hands to form a “log” shape.
Place onto a wax paper, or plastic wrap (I used a plastic sandwich bag) and roll to form a nicer more firm and compressed mixture. (Sort of like rolling sushi)
Place in the refrigerator to create a solid stick.
Both recipes are adapted from Only Grass Fed.
I paired these steaks with some baked potatoes, and a side salad! YUM! The next day I also enjoyed these steak leftovers chopped up on a salad. Overall, this recipe is a favorite in the K house! Enjoy everyone!!
