  • Completed step ½ cup (115 grams) unsalted butter, softened
  • Completed step 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh tarragon leaves
  • Completed step 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
  • Completed step 1 garlic clove, grated or minced
  • Completed step ½ teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • Completed step ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Completed step 4 flat iron steaks, each 170 to 225 grams and about 2.5 centimetres thick, excess fat and any gristle removed
  • Completed step Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Completed step Kosher salt
  • Completed step Freshly ground black pepper
  • Completed step 455 grams broccolini, with stalks no wider than 1 centimetre
  • Completed step 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


  • In a small bowl combine the butter ingredients. Scoop the mixture out of the bowl onto a sheet of parchment or wax paper. Loosely shape the mixture into a log about 2.5 centimetres in diameter. Roll the log in the paper and twist the ends in opposite directions to form an even cylinder. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until the butter is chilled.
  • Lightly brush the steaks on both sides with oil and season evenly with salt and pepper. Allow the steaks to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling. In a large bowl of water, submerge the broccolini for 20 to 30 minutes so that they absorb water. This will help them steam a little on the grill.
  • Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (230°C to 290°C). If you’re using a charcoal grill, keep a small part of the charcoal grate clear of briquettes as a safety zone of indirect heat.
  • Pour off the water from the bowl of broccolini. Lightly drizzle some oil over the broccolini and season with salt and red pepper flakes. Toss to coat evenly.
  • Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the steaks over direct high heat, with the lid closed, until cooked to your desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes for medium rare, turning once or twice (if flare-ups occur, move the steaks temporarily over indirect heat).
  • While the steaks are cooking, using tongs, lift the broccolini and allow any excess oil to drip back into the bowl. Grill the broccolini over direct high heat, with the lid closed, until lightly charred, 3 to 4 minutes, turning occasionally. Finish cooking over indirect heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the steaks and broccolini from the grill.
  • Cut four slices of butter, each about 1 centimetre thick and place one in the centre of each steak. Serve warm with the broccolini.
