New York Strip Steak
2 (12-ounce) New York strip steaks
1 teaspoon kosher salt
¾ teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
2 thyme sprigs
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1.Let steaks stand 30 minutes at room temperature.
2.Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over steaks. Be generous with the seasoning. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add steaks to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Reduce heat to medium-low; add butter, thyme, and garlic to the pan. Carefully grasp the handle of the pan using an oven mitt or folded dishtowel. Tilt pan toward you so the butter pools; cook 1 1/2 minutes, basting steaks with butter constantly. Remove steaks from pan; cover loosely with foil. Let stand 10 minutes. Reserve butter mixture.
3.Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices. Discard thyme and garlic; spoon reserved butter mixture over steak.
