Steak is one of my favorite proteins....ever. I have moments when I think it would be awesome to be a vegetarian, but then I think about steak and that whole notion gets tossed to the wind. Sometimes, you just need a quick steak fix and firing up the grill isn't an option. A good ole cast iron pan can do the trick in no time.
For this steak, I seasoned it heavily with S & P, melted a good amount of butter in the pan and tossed in some fresh rosemary sprigs for added umami. When rosemary gets hot, oils are released that perfume the butter and steak. Think hot summer day, running your hands along a rosemary bush and how intoxicating the smell of your hands are for hours later. Now I'm longing for summer days.
After the steak is cooked to your liking, remove it to a plate and top with a pat of Smoky Honey Habanero Butter. The heat from the steak will melt the spicy sweet deliciousness over it and it's good stuff. Really really really good stuff. Let's get to the recipe.
