Serves: 4-6
  • 4-6 steaks , 1½ - 2 inches, strip or ribeye

  • 2 cups salt, to line the bottom of the baking sheet
Flavored Butter - Lemon Herb:
  • 1 stick (8 Tablespoons butter) softened
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1 Tablespoon minced fresh parsley

  1. Trim the steaks from any gristle and fat. Dry them on a paper towel.
  2. Season generously with salt and pepper on both sides. Set aside for at least 30 minutes to an hour.
  3. Meanwhile, make the flavored butter, by combining all the ingredients together, shaping them into a log and refrigerating.
  4. Preheat the oven on broil. Set the oven rack to be right below the broiling unit or the one right below it.
  5. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and spread out 2 cups of salt on the bottom of the baking sheet. Set a rack on top of the layer of salt and place the steaks on top of the rack. The steaks should not be touching the salt.
  6. Broil for 2-4 minutes, flip the steak over and broil for another 2-4 minutes.
  7. Continue broiling for 2-4 minutes per side, until the meat is 125 degrees on an instant read thermometer for a medium rare steak, 130 degrees for medium well, and 140 for well done.
  8. Let the steaks rest for at least 5 -10 minutes. Top the steaks with flavored butter.
