March 27, 2020
If you are bored at home and you like to cook, I will be posting Ohrnberger approved recipes and videos!
1” thick NY Strip steak (or your favorite cut)
5 cloves of garlic
4 sprigs of rosemary
1/2 stick of butter (cut in two)
-Pat steak dry with paper towel, then liberally salt and pepper both sides.
-Put a shallow pan on Medium-High heat
-Add butter (1/4 stick), garlic, and rosemary to pan, and stir until fragrant
-Add Steak to the pan, and begin basting the steak with butter using a metal spoon
-Add the remaining butter (1/4 stick) to pan and continue basting.
-Flip over steak after 3 minutes (this time may be different on your stovetop — 3 minutes on each side, on my stove, makes medium-rare)
-Continue basting the steak with butter ... NEVER... STOP... BASTING.
-After 3 minutes of continuous basting, remove steak from pan, place on a plate with garlic and rosemary (from the pan), and cover with foil.
-Let the steak rest for 6 minutes under the foil.
-Open foil, cut steak on a bias, against the grain, sprinkle with salt, and serve with garlic and rosemary as garnish.
