IngredientsRecipe for 4
- Salt and pepper
- Olive oil
Preparation time: 45 min
Preheat your barbecue at 550 °F
Remove the beef from the fridge 45 minutes before cooking to make sure it is well tempered. Cut the butter into small cubes and let it temper to room temperature. Pluck and mince the fresh herbs.
Cut the foot of the garlic off. Place in a sheet of aluminum foil and drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Cook for roughly 30 minutes in the oven at 375°F.
- Herb butter
Remove the roasted garlic from its skin. Chop it until you have a purée. In a mixing bowl, combine the roasted garlic, butter and fresh herbs. Combine well and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a sheet of plastic wrap and form into a nice cylinder. Transfer to the fridge to let harden. Cut into slices before serving.
Right before cooking them, season the steaks with salt and pepper. Drizzle with oil. Grill the steaks on high heat for a couple minutes on each side to mark them. Continue to cook on medium heat until a meat thermometer reads 48°C. Transfer to a dish and let rest for 2 minutes before serving.
It is very important to let your meat rest after having cooked it. The rest period will allow the meat to have a nice even doneness as well as making sure it doesn't lose all of it's juices when you cut into it.
