Restaurant-Style Steak

In addition to the successful berry cheesecake I made for my husband's birthday, I also made a super successful birthday dinner! I saw a pin on Pinterest about how to make restaurant-style steaks and I immediately knew that it would be the perfect for his birthday dinner. I paired it with seasoned potato wedges and steamed lemon pepper broccoli.

This steak was seriously one of the very best steaks I've ever eaten - not to mention that it was easy to make and I made it!!  Me!  I made a restaurant-style quality steak!

What you need:
  • 4 steaks - your choice, we used NY strip steaks
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter [1 stick softened]
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp. parsley
  • 2 tbsp. thyme
  • 2 tsp. lemon zest

Mix together 1 stick butter with garlic, parsley, thyme, and lemon zest.

Form into a log and refrigerate.

Season steak on both sides with salt and pepper.

Heat 1/2 stick butter and 1 tbsp. olive oil in skillet on high.

Sear both sides of steak for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Then place on a baking sheet.

In a preheated 400-degree oven, cook steaks for 6 to 8 minutes - this will get it to about medium. 
You can cook it longer if you would like it more done.

Top with slice of herbed butter and serve :)
