Faux Filets Au Beurre D'anchois (Steak With Anchovy Butter)

Recipe by Chef Kate
READY IN: 30mins




  • Remove the anchovies from the cans and drain well; rinse under cold running water and pat dry.
  • Place the anchovies and the butter in a food processor or a blender and process, or mix with an immersion blender in a bowl until the anchovy butter is smooth.
  • Set aside.
  • Bring salted water to a boil in a steamer, place the broccoli in the top of the steamer and steam 3 to 6 minutes or until done to your taste.
  • Remove from steamer and keep warm.
  • Pre-heat the broiler.
  • Heat a large frying pan over high heat.
  • When the pan is very hot, saute the steaks about one minute one each side--the meat should be seared on the outside, raw on the inside.
  • Place the steaks on a sheet pan and coat the steaks with 2/3 of the anchovy butter.
  • Broil for three minutes without turning for medium rare, longer if you prefer.
  • Place the steaks on a warm platter and cover.
  • Place the sheet pan across two burners and, over medium high heat, melt the remaining butter, stirring and scraping to get all the fond from the pan.
  • Cut the steaks into thin slices.
  • Add the juice from the steaks to the butter.
  • Spoon half half the butter mixture over the sliced steak and toss the broccoli in the remaining butter.
  • Serve immediately.
