quick steak...

                             
 We ordered 1/4 of a grassfed cow last month and have been reaping the rewards.  
I cooked the filet mignon using an adapted recipe from the Nourishing Traditions cookbook...which gladly turned out to be the best piece of meat I have eaten in my whole entire life!

Quick Steak

1 1/2-2 pounds steak (filet, rib-eye, t-bone, new york, etc)
1/2 Tbsp cracked pepper
1 Tbsp organic butter
1 Tbsp coconut oil 
1 C organic heavy cream or whole milk
himalayan salt

*Sprinkle steaks with pepper and press in.  Melt butter and coconut oil in a heavy skillet.  Saute steaks a few (usually about 8 minutes total for rare) minutes on each side, until rare or medium rare.  Transfer to a heated platter and keep warm in oven while making sauce.

Add cream and 2 cloves garlic to the browning fat in pan and bring to a boil, scraping up any accumulated juices with a wooden spoon.  Simmer for several minutes until sauce thickens.  Drizzle over warm steaks and serve.
