As an entrepreneur, I have lots of long days. Nothing says warmth and relaxation more than a nice juicy steak and a cold shot of Hennessy. Nothing says double relaxation than putting the two together in an irresistible recipe I call my herbed rib eye with Hennessy garlic butter.
I’ll start by rubbing the steaks with lots of good seasonings, fresh herbs, and olive oil. Then, after my cast iron is nice and hot, I’ll cook the steaks on both sides until they’re medium well. I’ll remove the steaks and then whip up a quick butter that uses fresh lemon, garlic, and Hennessy to knock this ball right out of the park!
Here’s the recipe:
2 Rib Eye Steaks
1 1/2 tablespoons of fresh herbs, chopped (I used rosemary, tarragon, and thyme)
1 teaspoon of Kosher salt
1 teaspoon of fresh black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil
For the butter:
2 tablespoons of butter
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons of Hennessy
1 sprig of fresh thyme
1. Liberally season the steaks with salt, pepper, olive oil, and fresh herbs. Be sure to massage the seasonings in the steak.
2. Preheat a cast iron skillet and when it’s hot, add the steaks and sear on both sides until golden brown.
3. Remove the steaks. To start the butter, add in the butter, and garlic and saute until fragrant. Then add the lemon zest, lemon juice, Hennessy, and thyme and cook for about 60 seconds until thickened. Pour over steaks and enjoy.
