Butter Basted Rosemary Steaks Recipe

Butter-Basted Rosemary Steaks

A pan-seared steak can be an even better route than a well-grilled steak. Pan-searing in a ripping-hot cast iron skillet produces an even golden crust that really accentuates the flavor of the steak itself, allowing it to shine. The cast iron skillet is the best type of pan to use for this method, given its superior heat-retaining qualities. Basting it with butter both deepens the crust on the outside and helps the steak cook more quickly.
