Bill and Ted’s Excellent Steak with OG Compound Butter

Ingredients:

Four 8 ounce Filet Mignon or 12 ounce NY Strip Steaks (take out of the refrigerator 1 hour prior to cooking) Use a Choice or Prime Steak. I get mine from Holzman’s meats in Montgomery.

1 LBS. Unsalted Butter-at room temperature.

1-2 TBS Olive Oil

Non-Stick Cooking Spray like PAM or Vegalene

2 TBS Spice Spice Baby’s The OG seasoning

4 TBS Spice Spice Baby’s Bill and Teds Excellent Rub

Special equipment: an empty ice cube tray

Method:

Pre-heat your oven to 400 Degrees F

For the compound butter: In a stand mixer, or using a hand mixer, blend The OG seasoning together with the butter. This should take no more than a minute or two on low speed. With a spoon, spoon out the butter into the ice cube tray compartments-you may not fill each compartment, it’s ok. Wrap the whole thing with plastic wrap and freeze.

For the steaks:

1. Pat the tempered steaks dry using a paper towel. Then brush both sides of the steaks with olive oil. Season each sides of the steak with ½ TBS of spice.

2. On a high heat, get a cast iron skillet very hot. This will take 4-5 minutes.

3. Spray the tops of the steaks with non-stick spray and then place the spray side down in the cast iron skillet. Carefully spray the other side.

4. Let it cook for 3 minutes on each side. Do not fiddle with them while they cook. Let the heat do it's job and flip the steaks only once.

Place the steaks (along with the skillet) right into the hot oven. Cook for an additional 5-7 minutes. (as I tested this recipe 5 minutes gave me a perfect medium rare).
