Directions

1
Remove steaks from the packaging, rub with paper towels to remove the moisture, lightly sprinkle with sea salt and let sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.
2
Rub steak with oil and sprinkle both sides of each steak with salt and fresh cracked pepper.
3
Preheat grill or pan till it is good and hot, the temperature should be at least 375. An electric grill will take 5 minutes, an outdoor grill 10-15 minutes.
4
Place the steaks on the grill and don’t touch them for 4 minutes.
5
Lift the steaks slight and turn ¼ of an inch on the same side to get the diamond grill marks look and let cook for 2 minutes longer, pressing slightly to get even grill marks.
6
Turn the steaks and let cook 6 minutes longer without moving.
7
Remove steaks to a platter and top with the butter and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

This recipe is for medium rare, I do recommend using an instant-read thermometer, I can feel when a steak is cooked by how it springs back, but I have prepared a lot of steaks in my day.
