Butter Ghee Crusted Steak

Butter Ghee Crusted Steak Super Hungry? Jump to the Recipe

I'm of the belief that steak is best served golden brown and rare. And the secret to a perfect steak isn't some fancy marinade either - all you need is some salt, pepper, and ghee.

Ghee is a clarified butter generally used in Indian cooking, but has recently started trending amongst the health food community because of its awesome benefits, like being high in vitamins A and E and isn't restricted by dairy intolerance.

Plus, ghee has a higher smoking point than traditional butter so you can really get the skillet nice and hot, resulting in a perfectly golden, crispy, salt and pepper crusted steak.

Of course, after searing, let the steaks rest for a few minutes so they retain all their juices. And that's how you achieve the perfect steak!
