steaks with herb butter (12)

I am still working my way through the "Weekend" cookbook that Hubs and I chose to go through this year.  I took a break for awhile... from cooking in general because I was not feeling well with morning (all day) sickness and the thought of meal planning did not appeal to me at all.
So I opened up the cookbook and was REALLY excited to try this lovely little dish.
And did I mention it's in the "20 Minutes Start to Finish" section?
Oh yeah, baby!

So I give you the weekend cookbook and a recipe even my asian-loving-man-licked-his-lips-pushed-back-his-empty-plate and declared, "THIS was good."  And when Hubs says that, we all should listen. Cause he knows food.

steaks with herb butter

3 T unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 T snipped fresh chives (we did not use these)
1 T rosemary minced
freshly ground Pepper
4- 1 inch rib-eye steaks

What to do now:
Prepare the herb butter.
In a small dish, stir together the butter, chives, rosemary, and a pinch each of salt and pepper.

Cook the steaks.
Meanwhile, prepare a gar or charcoal grill for direct-heat grilling over high heat and oil the grill rack. Or, preheat a broiler (grill). Season the steaks generously with salt and pepper, patting it firmly into the meat.  Place the steaks on the grill rack, or put them on a baking sheet and place under the broiler.  Cook, turning once, for 6-8 minutes total for medium-rare, or until done to your liking.  Divide the steaks among 4 plates, top with the herb butter, and serve.

Dear Jo.

I know that some people are overly concerned about red meat. Not everyone agrees.

But everyone should be concerned about GREEN MEAT! And that ribeye has streaks of GREEN.

Green meat is not good for you or your Twinkies. And all I can say for Mikey is that he must have a strong stomach to eat green meat.

Guess what I just did? Read your engagement post over again from Mikey's blog. Way sweeter than this dinner, although this does look pretty good! It made me smile and remember those precious days! May you two continue to live happily ever after, and now with Twinkies on the way to liven up your story! XOXOX
