A simple mixture of butter and herbs enlivens the flavors of this grilled steak.
2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary, or 1 teaspoon chopped dried
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
Salt and pepper
2 New York strip steaks, about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds
In a small bowl, mix the butter, thyme, rosemary, lemon zest, salt ,and pepper and set aside. Light a charcoal or gas grill until red hot, or preheat a broiler for 4 minutes. Season the steaks with salt and pepper and grill for about 4 to 6 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the meat and how rare or well done you like your beef. (Note: If you're pregnant, cook the meat until it reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees when measured with a meat thermometer.) Remove to a platter and spread the herb butter on top of the hot steaks. Thinly slice before serving, spooning the butter on top. (Makes 4 to 6 servings)
You can make the lemon-herb butter a day ahead of time.
