    Unveiling the Secret Recipe: Grilled Steak with Herb Butter and Garlic Roasted Potatoes

    This recipe is a fantastic starting point for a fantastic Father’s Day meal. It’s simple enough for even novice cooks to tackle, yet impressive enough to leave Dad feeling truly special.


    2 thick-cut ribeye steaks (or Dad’s preferred cut)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Directions:

    1. Marinate the Steaks: Pat the steaks dry with paper towels. Season generously with salt and pepper on both sides. In a small bowl, combine olive oil with additional herbs of your choice (optional). Brush the steaks with the olive oil mixture and place them in a shallow dish. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours, for deeper flavor.

    2. Prepare the Herb Butter: In a small bowl, cream together the softened butter, minced garlic, chopped rosemary, and chopped thyme. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

    3. Roast the Potatoes: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Toss the potato wedges with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Spread the potatoes on a baking sheet and roast for 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown and tender.

    4. Grill the Steaks: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Remove the steaks from the marinade and allow them to come to room temperature for about 10 minutes. Sear the steaks for 3-4 minutes per side for a medium-rare doneness, or adjust cooking time according to your desired preference.

    5. Assemble and Serve: Once cooked, transfer the steaks to a plate and tent them loosely with foil to let them rest for 5-10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in a more tender and flavorful steak.

    6. The Secret Ingredient: While the steaks rest, slice the herb butter into pats. Here’s the secret ingredient – a dollop of love! As you plate the steaks and roasted potatoes, place a pat of herb butter on top of each steak. The warmth will melt the butter, creating a decadent and flavorful topping.

    7. Enjoy!: Serve the grilled steaks with roasted potatoes and any additional sides you like.
