Fireworks Black Truffle Butter Steaks
Here's a restaurant meal for you to make that is sure to wow your guests! I love truffle flavor when done right. I've had plenty of conversations with people (chefs mainly) who agree with me, that truffles can be too overpowering. When I tested the recipes for our truffle butter I wanted to make sure that I would eat it. Many times truffle flavors are too bold or just not there. This recipe will teach you how to cook a ribeye steak and season it properly with truffle butter.
Have you ever been disappointed from undercooked or overcooked steaks on the grill? I have and that is what prompted me to share this technique with you. You are throwing away good time and money from not taking my advice here. First things first: please, please, please invest in an instant-read thermometer and use it every time you are cooking meat. Any meat…That goes for chicken, pork, fish etc. You will not be disappointed. Second, practice using the heel feel test. This is where you physically touch the cooked meat to check for doneness without cutting into it first. A piece of meat will be done when it feels like the heel of your hand, the muscle pad below your thumb. There is some give, but tension also.
I would be remiss in not telling you how much I prefer to cook steaks in a skillet. It prevents the meat from drying out. However, I know many grill masters who can't imagine a steak without grill marks...So I'll leave it up to you...
That is it. Try out these tips and let me know what you think. Now go get your skillets (and grills) hot…This is going to be great!
4 well marbled Ribeye Steaks, 6-8 oz each
Fresh ground pepper
1 or 2 Fireworks Black Truffle Butter Bursts
Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Or heat the grill to 500˚ if using. Season steaks well with salt and pepper on both sides. For both grill or skillet, you'll start cooking in the skillet. So get the it hot by heating to medium-high heat. Season skillet by melting 1 tbs of Fireworks Black Truffle butter. Add the steaks and sear each steak for 4-6 minutes per side. If you're like me you'll keep them in the skillet until your thermometer says 135 for medium rare. If you're grilling, go for 4 minutes, after searing on all sides, transfer them to the grill to finish cooking. Grill for 3-4 minutes per side depending on desired doneness and whether they’re bone in or not. For bone-in, plan another minute or two. For either cooking technique, you'll let the meat rest by removing the meat from the heat and placing it on a cutting board with a well around the perimeter for juices to flow. Cover with foil and let rest for 5-10 minutes. After resting, put 1 tbs Fireworks Truffle butter on each steak. Serve with more truffle butter at the table. It's that good! Sizzle. Spread. Boom.
