2 tsp.chopped flat leaf parsley
1 tsp.chopped fresh thyme
¼ tsp.coarse sea salt

Things To Grab

    Directions

    1. To make Compound Butter, combine butter with garlic, parsley, thyme, sea salt and black pepper. Set aside until steaks are finished resting.
    2. About 20 minutes before grilling, remove the steaks from the refrigerator and let sit, covered, at room temperature.
    3. Heat the grill to high. Brush the steaks with oil on both sides and season liberally with salt and pepper.
    4. Grill the steaks until golden brown and slightly charred, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the steaks over and continue to grill 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare (an internal temperature of 130 degrees), 5 to 7 minutes for medium (140 degrees) or 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well (150 degrees).

    5. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board or platter, tent loosely with foil and let rest 5 minutes before slicing. Top with compound butter before serving.
