Garlic-Herb Butter Steak and Mushrooms

Instructions

  • Generously season the steaks with kosher salt and black pepper.
  • Make the garlic compound butter by mixing the butter, minced garlic, and fresh chopped herbs. Set aside.
  • In a large cast iron skillet over medium heat, add avocado oil, butter, mushrooms, garlic, and herb sprigs. Cook for about 3-5 minutes or until the mushrooms are soft. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Turn the heat up to high and sear each side for 3 minutes or until the outside is browned. Reduce heat to medium-high and continue to cook (flipping back and forth) until steaks reach desired doneness; medium-rare: 3-5 minutes, internal temperature at 135°F; medium: 5-7 minutes, internal temperature at 140°F.
  • Right before the steaks are done, slather compound butter over the top of the cooking steaks. Add the mushrooms back to the skillet. Allow the butter to melt through the steaks and heat the mushrooms through. Serves 2
