A butter-basted steak is a thing of great beauty. For me, a perfectly pan-seared ribeye steak bathed in butter and aromatics is my favourite way to cook steak. Yes, moreso than a grilled steak. Why? Because the sear on a pan is more even and more intense which then in turn really intensifies the beefy flavour. The butter combination with aromatics like garlic, bay leaf, and rosemary lends an incredible background flavour to the meat too.
