How to make the herb butter

This herb butter is buttery and rich in flavor. It is a delicious and simple way to add an extra layer of flavor to the ribeye steak.

I have used thyme, parsley, and garlic for this recipe.

You can use other herbs if you’d prefer. Thyme goes really well with steak, but rosemary would work well too.

Frequently asked questions

Can I use a regular pan for steak?

Yes, you can use a regular pan to cook your steak. But using a cast iron pan allows the meat to brown better thus making the steak more flavorful with a crispy exterior.

How do I know when the steak is done?

The best way to know if the steak is done, is by checking to see how well done you like it. For rare, you gently press on the steak with your fingers and it will feel soft. For medium rare, gently press down on the steak and it should have a little bit of give. For well done, the steak will be firm to the touch.

What are the cook times for steak?

For rare, let the steak cook for 3 minutes in each side. For medium rare, cook for 4 minutes in each side. For well done, cook for 5 minutes in each side. After it’s cooked, let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Tips for a perfectly cooked steak

  • Make certain that your steak is at room temperature before cooking it. Take it out of the refrigerator and let it sit on the counter for at least one hour before cooking it.
  • Don’t press down on your steak with a spatula or tongs. This will cause all of the juice to come out, resulting in less tender meat. 
  • Just flip it once! Resist the urge to turn your steak multiple times as it cooks. 
  • Do not overcrowd your pan when cooking steak. This will cause the temperature on the pan to go down, resulting in a chewy steak.
  • Give your steak a few minutes to rest after cooking so that juices redistribute within the steak. This will ensure that your steak is nice and juicy in the center when you cut into it.
