Preparation Time: 45 minutes
Cooking Intensity: Moderate
Yield: 4 servings
Ingredients:
4 (6-ounce) ribeye or sirloin steaks
1 1/2 pounds baby potatoes, halved
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
Instructions:
1. Preparation:
Season the Steaks:
Generously season the steaks with salt and pepper on both sides.
Let them sit at room temperature for 20 minutes before cooking.
Preheat the Oven:

Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

2. Cooking the Potatoes:

Prepare the Potatoes:

In a large bowl, toss the halved potatoes with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Roast the Potatoes:

Spread the potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Roast in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until golden and tender, flipping halfway through.

3. Cooking the Steaks:

Heat the Skillet:

Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.

Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter.

Cook the Steaks:

Once the butter is melted and foamy, add the steaks to the skillet.

Cook the steaks for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or until they reach your desired doneness.

During the last minute of cooking, add the minced garlic, rosemary, and thyme to the skillet. Baste the steaks with the garlic butter using a spoon.

Rest the Steaks:

Remove the steaks from the skillet and let them rest on a plate, loosely covered with foil, for about 5 minutes.

4. Combining and Serving:

Toss the Potatoes in Garlic Butter:

In the same skillet, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter.

Tips for Perfect Garlic Butter Steak and Potatoes:

Room Temperature Steaks: Let the steaks sit at room temperature before cooking to ensure even cooking.

Don’t Overcrowd the Skillet: Cook the steaks in batches if necessary to avoid overcrowding the skillet, which can cause steaming instead of searing.

Resting Time: Allowing the steaks to rest after cooking helps retain their juices, making them more tender and flavorful.

Enjoy your delicious garlic butter steak and potatoes as a hearty and satisfying meal!
