It's been so long since I have had a steak that when Rachel Ray made some on her show, I thought, "you know...tonight's the night!" So I went to the store bought my ingredients and we got it all made and even got to enjoy dinner alone while the baby took a nap. E has been meaning to order a piece for his grill but has yet to remember so our grill doesn't work. However, the broiler on my stove does work and these were awesome. Sorry about the photo again...camera phone.
Strip Steaks with Garlic and Chive Butter
2 (8-ounce) NY strip steaks
4 tablespoons butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and Pepper
1/4 cup chopped chives
Season the steaks with salt and pepper on both sides and arrange on slotted broiler pan.
Arrange steaks on the broiler pan. Place under broiler - leave door to oven cracked ajar to limit flare ups and smoke. Cook 4 minutes on each side for medium rare, up to 5 to 6 minutes on each side for medium well doneness.
Soften butter mixed with chives and garlic in microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir and spoon over steaks.
