I bought some strip steaks last night and wanted to make something simple with them today. So I rubbed them with olive oil, seasoned them up with Penzeys 4/S Smoked Salt and some freshly cracked black pepper, seared them off in the cast iron skillet and finished them off in the oven. I made a compound butter with chives, lime zest, lime juice, salt and pepper. It melted down over the steaks and made them taste fantastic. I served them with some corn and leftover refried beans. It was a simple, wonderful meal!
