Garlic Butter Steak Recipe using Aradia Farm grass fed steaks.
Garlic Butter Steak Ingredients

- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons freshly snipped parsley
- 4 Aradia Farm sirloin steaks
- salt and pepper to taste
Garlic Butter Steak Recipe Directions
In a small bowl, combine the softened butter, garlic, salt and parsley, mixing well. Set aside.
Season both sides of the steak with salt and pepper.
Set the grill to high and heat until the temperature is at least 400 degrees.
Place the steaks on the heated grill and cook for 3-4 minutes, then gently flip the steaks and cook for an additional 4-5 minutes, or until the steaks are heated to the desired internal temperature:
3-5 minutes for medium-rare (145 degrees F)
5 to 7 minutes for medium (160 degrees F)
8 to 10 minutes for well (170 degrees F)
The exact grilling time will depend on how thick your steaks are so watch closely and measure temperature with an internal thermometer inserted into the side of the steak.
Remove the steaks from the grill and allow them to rest for 3 minutes before carving to seal in the juices.
Using a pastry brush, brush the tops of the steaks with the garlic butter. Flip the steaks and brush the other side.
Remove the steaks from the refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling to bring them to room temperature.
Once the steaks have cooked to the correct temperature, remove them to a plate and allow them to rest for 3 minutes. This seals in all of the juices. If you cut into the steaks too quickly, the juices will escape. And trust me…you want those juices in each bite that goes in your mouth.
Slice the steak against the grain of the muscle. Beef is made up of long muscle fibers that are bundled together in a parallel fashion. You want to slice your steak across those parallel grain lines. Cutting across the grain will shorten those muscle fibers and give you a tender steak bite that is easy to eat.
