DIRECTIONS

  • Generously salt, pepper filets, add garlic powder. Refrigerate until 30 minutes before cooking. Allow filets to come to room temperature, about 30 minutes, before cooking. This is an important step!
  • Place enough EVOO in cast iron skillet to sear 2 steaks. Heat oil to HIGH.
  • Place steaks in oil and sear on both sides on HIGH for 2 minutes each side.
  • Once seared, add 2T butter, minced garlic and thyme to pan.
  • Transfer skillet to oven preheated to 450 degrees. Cook, without turning for 3 minutes, or until rare/ med-rare (130 – 140 degrees).
  • Remove skillet from oven, return to stove top on medium heat. Add more butter, thyme, garlic and some red wine. Just enough time to baste.
  • Place on plate and allow to rest 5 minutes.
