    **Reverse Seared Butter Basted Steak** This is my favorite way to cook a high quality steak. It’s not fast, but it’s worth the time. Perfect this and you'll be ruined for anything but the absolute best steak house. **Notes** * For a deep dive on the reverse sear I highly recommend [this article](https://www.seriouseats.com/2017/03/how-to-reverse-sear-best-way-to-cook-steak.html) * Any steak will work but this recipe really shines with a thick and fatty high quality cut * Butter basting builds a beautiful mahogany crust with lots of flavor and it's a dramatic show! * The final butter shower adds a nice sizzle and flash cooks the herbs **Equipment** * Heavy steel or cast iron pan (not non-stick) * Rimmed baking sheet with nesting cooling rack * Oven probe thermometer ([my favorite](https://www.thermoworks.com/DOT)) **Ingredients** * Steak * Kosher Salt * Butter, half stick * Optionally, fresh oregano or thyme sprigs **Directions** * Prep * Liberally dust steak on all sides with kosher salt * Insert the thermometer probe into the thickest part of the steak * Nest the cooling rack in the cookie sheet * Place the steak on the cooling rack * Warm * Set oven to 200℉ or as low as it’ll go * Put the steak in the oven, no need to wait for pre-heating * Set your thermometer to 114℉ (see the [reverse sear article](https://www.seriouseats.com/2017/03/how-to-reverse-sear-best-way-to-cook-steak.html) for other temperature options) * Remove steak from oven when it reaches 114℉, takes about an hour in my oven * Baste * Heat saute pan over medium high heat * Melt butter in pan * Gently lay steak in pan * Constantly spoon butter over steak, flipping every 30 seconds * When steak is rich mahogany on all sides, ~2-4 minutes of basting, return steak to cooling rack in cookie sheet * Keep remaining butter in pan warm over low heat * Sizzle * If using, pile herb sprigs on top of steak * Let rest for 4 minutes * Pour remaining hot butter in pan over herbs and steak (expect a super satisfying sizzle) * Serve!
