Ingredients:

  • 4 grass-fed beef steaks, such as porterhouse, sirloin, rib eye, shell or filet mignon (1/2 pound each and 3/4 to 1 inch thick), or one 2-pound steak. (I love the Grass fed beef vendor at the Farmer’s Market downtown. Trust me you will use him often as a source. Great grass fed steaks)
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Homemade fries

Preparation

With a sharp knife, make small incisions, about 1 1/2 inches apart in the fat around the outside of each steak.

Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter in a large heavy skillet or sauté pan over high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and sear for 1 minute on each side. Reduce the heat to medium. Season the steaks generously with salt and pepper and continue cooking, turning the steaks every other minute, until you see little pearls of blood come to the surface, about 6 to 8 minutes. The steaks should be cooked rare to medium for juicy, tender meat.

Remove the steaks and place them on warmed plates. Over medium heat, deglaze the pan with the water and swirl in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Drizzle these pan juices over the meat and serve at once with fries.
