Cast Iron Steak with Herb Butter

Ingredients

Herb Butter
    • 8 Tbls organic butter or ghee, softened
    • 1 Tbls fresh thyme, minced
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/2 Tbls coconut aminos
For the steak:
  • 2- 3/4lb New York Strip Steaks (grass fed/organic) *Why grass fed?…You eat what they eat! Grass fed cows will live their whole life on a pasture and forage  diet vs the grain and other unnatural foods conventional cows consume. Grass-fed beef contains more nutrients and more flavor!
