Steaks in a Butter Bath. Yes, you read that correctly. A butter bath. Honestly, I was tempted to dive in myself!

Steak + Butter:
  • 2-3 NY Strips
  • 6 cups of Unsalted Butter
  • 1-2 Whole Garlic Bulb s, cut in half
  • 4 sprigs of Rosemary
  • 4 sprigs of Sage
  • 2 tsp of Sea Salt
  • 2 tsp of Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp of Garlic Powder
  • 1.5 tbsp of Flakey Salt
  • 1 tsp of Lemon Zest
  • Fried Onion Crisps for garnish
  • Chopped Parsley for garnish
  • Charred Lemon for garnish
  1. Preheat a smoker or indirect grill to 250F. Add a dutch oven or skillet w/lid to the smoker to preheat for 5 minutes.
  2. Add all the butter, garlic bulbs, rosemary and sage to the dutch oven and let melt (about 5 minutes). Next, add the plain NY Strips to the butter bath, cover and cook until they are 120F internal (about 30 minutes). Once the steaks are done & have hit temperature, pull them off and let them rest for 10 minutes.
  3. While the steaks rest, build a high heat fire (around 400F) for searing on a skillet/plancha.
  4. Pat the steaks dry from any excess butter and season on all sides with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Add the steaks to the skillet to sear for 1-1.5 minutes per side until they are crispy. Pull the steaks off once done. In a bowl, mix together the flakey salt & lemon zest. Slice your steaks and garnish with lemon salt, fried onion crisps and chopped garlic. Serve and enjoy!
