My Herb and Butter-basted Steak Recipe
Although many of our friends say that I and my family are meat eaters (they said that we eat more meat than the typical household), we rarely make steak. It wasn’t just embedded into our culture and tradition as a family. However, I’ve been wanting to do so ever since. Hence, I tried cooking my own herb and butter-basted steak recipe.
If you’re the type who likes medium-rare steak, then this is not my recipe. My family, except for myself, is used to well done, if not more. Hence, this herb and butter-basted steak recipe is stir-fried to its maximum cooking, or else my family would not eat it.
Now, behold the recipe and instructions on how to make my herb and butter steak (for this, I used beef, but you may also apply it to pork).
Herb and Butter-basted Steak Recipe: Ingredients
- 1. Butter
- 2. Olive Oil
- 4. Thyme
- 5. Salt
- 6. Pepper
- 7. Rosemary
- I had to boil the beef because my family wants it well done. You may also cook the steak medium-rare. Just make sure you rid the steak of moisture using a paper towel or any cloth before you put it in the pan.
- Season the beef/pork with salt and pepper.
- Put enough Olive Oil in the pan, then the beef/pork and butter right after.
- While cooking, slip the thyme and rosemary into the pan. There’s no limit to how much olive oil, butter, thyme, and rosemary you put. In my case, I prefer putting a lot of it so that more flavor may seep into the steak.
- I would like to promote this locally-made tuna spread. You can buy it at Padre Ninnos Gourmet in Buda, Davao City. We shopped a lot of their sauces and spreads like their specialty, own ketchup, homemade tomato sauce, pesto sauce, and this tuna spread. It was their founder, Fr. Franco Uras, who taught me how to use each of the appetizers we bought. He recommended spreading this tuna over to the steak while cooking. It sure helped with the flavor.
That’s my Herb and Butter-basted Steak recipe. Done. You may add any side veggies you like. I always prefer mixed vegetables sauteed in butter.
