sunday steak

Warm up this February with a Sunday Steak recipe for two from Food52 that’s topped with sizzling garlic and shallot butter.


  • 2 1 lb. steaks
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • 1 stick butter, unsalted
  • 1 1/2 tbs. fresh parsley or less, to taste
  • 2 tsp. finely-minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. finely-minced shallot
  • white pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • 1/2 fresh lemon


  • Season the steaks with kosher salt and white pepper to taste.
  • Let steaks come to room temperature about an hour before cooking.
  • In a separate bowl, melt butter with herbs, lemon juice, shallot, garlic, and some cracked white pepper.
  • Bring a cast iron skillet to medium-high heat, adding enough oil to coat the pan.
  • Cook each steak individually, one by one. Cook the first steak on both sides until caramelized, or your desired temperature.
  • Repeat the process with the second steak.
  • Top steaks with melted butter and serve with your choice of side dishes, either ravioli or mini Yukon golds.
  • Enjoy!
