  2. 1 lb. Walmart Fresh Angus New York Strip Steak
  3. Kosher salt
  4. Freshly ground black pepper
  6. 1 c. butter, softened
  7. Zest of half a lemon
  8. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  9. 1 small shallot, minced
  10. 2 tbsp. dijon mustard
  11. 1 tbsp. prepared horseradish
  12. 1/4 tsp. paprika
  13. 2 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley
  14. 1 tbsp. freshly chopped chives
  15. Kosher salt
  16. Freshly ground black pepper
  18. 3 tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
  19. 1 lb. baby potatoes, quartered
  1. Remove steak from refrigerator and let come to room temperature, 30 minutes. Season all over with salt and pepper
  2. Meanwhile, make cowboy butter: In a medium bowl, combine all cowboy butter ingredients and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place on plastic wrap and form into a log. Refrigerate until firm, 30 minutes.
  4. Heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until fork tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
  5. Drop approximately 1 tablespoon cowboy butter into potatoes and toss until butter is completely melted and potatoes are coated. Remove potatoes from skillet, wipe out pan, and return to heat.
  6. Heat remaining vegetable oil until just beginning to smoke. Add steak and cook, flipping occasionally, until a golden crust begins to form on both sides of the steak, about 5 minutes.
  7. Reduce heat to medium low and add approximately 2 tbsp cowboy butter to the pan. Using a kitchen towel, carefully grip the skillet handle and tilt towards you so that the melting butter forms a pool at the bottom of the skillet. Using a spoon, continually baste butter onto steak to form a deeper golden crust. Flip steak and repeat, 2 to 3 minutes in total. Using a meat thermometer, check for doneness: 120-125°F for medium rare, 130°F for medium.
  8. Remove steak from skillet and place on cutting board to rest, 10 minutes. Slice and serve with potatoes, dotted with cowboy butter.

Well, there’s no such thing as a steak that is TOO good, but this is pretty darn close.
