Country Beef Steak with Garlic Butter


How to make juicy steak with garlic butter

A perfectly prepared juicy and tender beef steak with rich creamy garlic butter, it doesn’t get any better than this. This easy recipe is perfect to make anytime. You can make it on the grill but it’s just as easy to make by using a cast iron skillet and the stovetop for a quick sear, then into the oven for a few minutes to cook to perfection. This method is often overlooked as an excellent way to cook steak. If you don’t own a cast iron skillet or grill pan, you’re encouraged to get one and enjoy all the benefits. Make sure you have the vent above the stove on, the sizzle on the steak can get a little smoky.

The delicious garlic butter makes this recipe an all time favorite.
