    riffraff's Note:

    I recently watched a documentary about the closing of the great Hollywood restaurant Chasen's. During the film they kept showing the captains making this steak tableside and it looked just wonderful. At the end of the film they showed the recipes. I know the recipe looks like it has a lot of fat and it does but keep in mind the pieces of fat and the salt crust are disgarded and the steak is just cooked in the butter, you are not eating all that fat salt and butter. I think this would make a great special occasion meal.
