Step 1 –Heat a cast-iron pan over medium-high heat until hot.

Step 3 –While the pan is heating, pat the steaks dry with a paper towel.

Step 5 –Add the steaks to the hot skillet and sear on one side until a brown crust forms, about 4 minutes.

Step 6 –Flip the steaks and cook, for about 3-4 minutes.

Step 7 –Use tongs to turn the steaks on their sides and cook until the white fat is rendered and the edges are seared, about 1 minute per edge.

Step 9 –Cook the butter mixture until the butter melts.

Step 10 –Spoon the butter sauce over the steaks until they are about 5-10 degrees from your desired doneness (140 degrees F for medium-rare, 155 degrees F for medium), about 1 minute.
