Total Time

Prep: 5 min. + standing cook: 5 min. Makes 2 servings

If you’ve never cooked steak at home before, it can be a little intimidating. That’s why I came up with this simple steak recipe that so easy, you could make it any day.


* 3 teaspoon salt, divided

* 500g ribeye steak, (250g each)

* 200g butter

* 2 tbsp oil

* 1 tsp black pepper


~ Remove steak in the refrigerator and Sprinkle with salt; let stand 15 minutes.

~ preheat a skillet over high heat until extremely hot, Sprinkle a little salt, drizzle oil on the steaks then place steak in skillet and cook until easily moved, 2-3 minutes; flip, and cook. Continue flipping until cooked. Add a nob of butter, rosemary and spoon graze with butter.

Can you cook steak in butter?

Yes, you can cook steak in butter. Baste your steak with melted butter and herbs or use a compound butter as a topper once cooked.

How can I make my steak juicy and tender?

For the juiciest and most tender steaks, pick out a steak with a healthy amount of fat.

Guinness Float

The very first sip of a Guinness is what inspired this quick and easy dessert. The rich, creamy foam that gathers on the top of a freshly poured draft made me think of vanilla ice cream. At that point, I knew I had to combine the two in a Guinness Float.


* 1 cup vanilla ice cream, softened if necessary

* 2 bottle of Guinness beer

* 2 tbsp chocolate syrup


~ Divide ice cream between 2 glasses. Slowly top with beer, drizzle with chocolate syrup. Serve immediately.

Oven-Roasted Tilapia

After work, I want a fast meal. Roasted Tilapia is super tender and has a delicate sweetness.

* 2 tbsp oil

* 1/2 tsp salt

* 1/4 tsp pepper


~ place a large cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet in a cold oven. Preheat oven to 450°. Meanwhile, brush Tilapia with oil and Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

~ Carefully remove skillet from oven. Place fish, in skillet. Return to oven; bake uncovered, until fish flakes easily. Remove and serve.

Clarified Butter

We make clarified butter to remove the milk solids, which are what burn when cooking with high heat. Keep a jar in the fridge to use for pan frying, or to drizzle over veggies, rice and, of course, seafood.


* 1 cup unsalted butter, cubed


In a small heavy saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Simmer until solids separate from fat, about 10 minutes, but do not allow butter to brown. Remove from heat; skim and discard surface foam.

~ slowly pour clear yellow liquid through a fine-mesh strainer into a bowl. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 months or in the freezer for 8 months.
