  • 6 anchovy fillets, minced
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Four 1-inch-thick steaks (about 11 ounces each for bone-in steaks, 8 ounces for boneless)
  • Salt

How to make this recipe

  1. In a bowl, combine the anchovies, butter, shallot, parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Wrap the butter in a piece of plastic wrap, shape into a 1-inch-thick log and freeze until firm.

  2. Preheat the broiler. Arrange the steaks on a broiler pan, season with salt and pepper and broil for about 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium- rare. Transfer the steaks to plates, top each one with a 1/4-inch pat of the butter and serve immediately.
