NY Strip

Let steak sit at room temp 5-10 mins

Seasoned generously with fresh ground peppercorn, sea salt and Montreal seasoning.

Heat large pan on high

Add butter + fresh garlic to pan

Let pan get very hot, I let it sit for 5-8 mins

Add steak and sear for 1.5 mins on each side

Place steak on baking sheet

Add about a teaspoon of butter on top of each steak

Bake at 400* until the internal temp reaches your desired level. For these, they were in the oven for about 15 minutes reaching a temp of 155*.

One other detail, I let the steaks rest for 5 mins or so on a cutting board and added another teaspoon of butter before serving.

Cut each sprout in half

Remove from oven and shake pan to flip/rotate sprouts

Bring oven temp to 450*

Spray a small amount of avocado oil on kale.
