So how I cook steaks. I start with NY Strip Steaks about an inch thick.
|exactly 1" this time|
Put on a wire rack over a sheetpan and sprinkle both sides liberally with kosher salt
Preheat oven to 500° for at least a half an hour leave the steak out of the refrigerator for 45 minutes to an hour
Turn the broiler to high (prop open the door slightly to keep broiler on. I use a wooden utensil because they don't get too hot. You could make a prop out of foil too)
Broil on high four minutes each side (flipping only once)
|After the first 4 minute, what each side looks like|
|after the second 4 minutes|
Blue Cheese Butter
1 stick unsalted butter, slightly softened
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme
Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
Combine the butter, cheese, and thyme in a bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
