New Year’s Eve calls for something special, but if you’d rather skip the crowded, overpriced restaurant scene that night, you can easily make a restaurant-quality steak at home by adding one simple step.
A thick-cut NY strip steak is worthy of any special occasion, but even a perfectly grilled steak can be improved by basting it with a simple, delicious garlic-herb butter. Simply melt together a little butter with fresh garlic and rosemary to brush on the steaks while they cook. It’s really that easy.
I like to use steaks that are about 1” thick to help make sure they don’t overcook and dry out on the grill. Season them generously with salt and pepper before putting them on the grill and then baste them occasionally with the garlic-rosemary butter while they cook. This simple, flavored butter takes an already delicious cut of meat and makes it worthy of any special occasion.
