This recipe for steak is perfect for date night! The butter adds richness and keeps leaner-than-usual beef moist without adding much total fat. The savory richness pairs perfectly with a nice red wine.
4 center cut steaks (1 to 1.5-inches thick), room tº
2 or 3 garlic cloves
2 Tbs fresh rosemary leaves
3 Tbs butter
1 Tbs olive oil
Salt and pepper
A splash of white or red wine
Mince garlic and rosemary. Add 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste) and mince it a little longer. You can also do this with a mortar and pestle. Rub the paste over both sides of each steak.
Heat a skillet over medium/high heat and melt butter. Add oil to prevent it from burning too much. Add steaks, season them with pepper and cook 1 or 2 minutes on each side. Turn it over, cook it 2 or 3 more minutes and add the wine (you can add extra garlic and rosemary now too to the skillet). It will steam furiously. Cook the steak 2 or 3 additional minutes for medium rare, remove steaks and let rest for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the wine until reduced and a kind of sauce if formed. Slice the steaks and serve them with the sauce.
