Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
• 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
• Kosher salt
• Freshly ground black pepper
• 4 tablespoons butter
• 1 tablespoon roughly chopped rosemary
Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Step 2: Season steak with salt and pepper on both sides.
Step 3: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil. When the oil is just about to smoke, add steak. Cook until very seared, about 5 minutes, then flip and add butter and rosemary. Baste with butter and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes.
Step 4: Transfer skillet to oven and cook until cooked to your liking, about 5 minutes for medium. Check every couple of minutes so you don't risk overcooking.
Step 5: Remove from pan and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
