Steak De Burgo

A good friend of mine from Iowa gave me this recipe and taught me how to prepare it the way they did in her home growing up. This is true Midwestern comfort food! The butter in this recipe can be replaced with margarine, but I usually don't do that since it does sacrifice some of the taste. If you really want to play it low calorie, use half butter, half margarine.
Steak Recipe From Lobster Gram

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 6 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 4 6 oz Filet Mignon
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

Melt butter in heavy small saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat. Add garlic. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let garlic butter stand 2 hours at room temperature. Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper. Grill steaks to taste, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Place pan of garlic butter at edge of grill to re-warm. Transfer steaks to plates. Spoon garlic butter over, sprinkle with herbs and serve.
