Got fresh thyme and need to use it up?  Here’s a great recipe!  I love pairing steak and flavored butters.  Delicious!  I modified the avocado fries recipe - the Italian seasoning does not go so well with them, I decided, so I removed that from the recipe.  Butternut squash Cakes and a small piece of yam (sweet potato) completes the sides.  I couldn't sleep, so I'm up posting this steak recipe for you.  Today will be a busy day, so I got an early start!

Here is another example of a tasty steak in butter sauce:  Garlic Parsley Butter Steak  

Thyme Butter:
1/cup butter, melted (60 mL)
1 tbsp chopped, fresh thyme (15 mL)
1 tsp crushed garlic (5 mL)

3 thick New York Strip steaks,
  (about 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick)
Seasoning salt, to taste
2 tbsp olive oil (30 mL)

In small bowl, combine melted butter, thyme and garlic. 

Sprinkle steaks liberally with seasoning salt on both sides.  Pour butter mixture on both sides of the steaks.

Allow to marinate at room temperature 1 hour.

In two nonstick skillets in 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil, sear steaks on medium high heat for 1 minute.  Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook the steaks for 3 or 4 minutes more.  Turn steaks and cook another 5 to 10 minutes on medium low heat, until cooked to your liking.  During the last 5 minutes, flip the steaks as needed.  Drop about 1 tsp (5 mL) Garlic Thyme Butter on the steaks in the last minute of cooking.  Place the steaks on plates and allow to rest at room temperature 5 minutes, before serving.  Garnish steaks with a sprig of thyme.
