How to Make Blue Plate Special

  1. Heat extra-virgin oil over medium heat. When the oil is heated add in two tablespoons of butter.
  2. Season the steak with salt and pepper on both the sides. Gently add it into the pan. Add in the garlic, rosemary and thyme.
  3. Let the steak cook for about 5 minutes. Add two more tablespoons of butter over steak. Flip the steak so that both the sides are fully covered with butter.
  4. Once the steak is golden brown, turn off the heat. Remove from the pan and let it rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing it.
  5. Meanwhile, make a glaze by mixing vinegar and sugar in a small pan over medium-low heat. Bring it to a simmer. Cook until the liquid has reduced and the sugar is fully dissolved.
