If you’ve got a busy afternoon planned and are looking to prepare a slightly heavier and more satisfying meal, you can’t beat a CBD-infused garlic butter steak.
The key here is ensure that you prepare and cook your steak to the optimal temperature, which remains something of an art form that can be genuinely difficult to master.
What you’ll need:
• Rump Steak 250g
• Pinch of sea salt and black pepper
• Garlic Clove
• Knob of butter or 55g butter
• 400g butter (salted or unsalted) or spreadable margarine
• 15 cloves garlic
• 7 tbsp olive oil
• 1 tsp parsley (optional)
Before you start the cooking process, you’ll need to create a basic rub for your steak using olive or vegetable oil along with salt and pepper.
At the same time, you’ll need to heat a pan using another two tablespoons of oil, before adding the prepared steak and commencing the cooking process.
The length of time required to cook the steak will depend on your desired temperature, from two minutes for a rare steak to six minutes for a medium-rare piece of meat (this is the most popular option).
Either way, be sure to turn this every minute, while taking these intervals as opportunities to further season the steak.
You can halve a garlic clove and rub this over the steak each time you turn it, for example, while butter can also provide a rich and flavourful rub.
In fact, this adds an additional layer of sweetness, but once again this depends on your own unique tastes and preferences.
If you own a herb brush, you may also use this to apply thyme or rosemary to the steak each time you turn it. This creates a further layer of flavour, which can make a big difference when attempting to create a unique and delicious recipe.
Now for the most important part; as it’s imperative that you rest your steak for a period of two minutes once it has been removed from the heat.
This ensures that all of those carefully cultivated flavours are locked in, while it also prevents your meat from bleeding profusely over the plater (this is particularly important for rare or medium-rare temperatures).
When it comes to preparing your garlic butter, you should start by mixing softened butter with finely chopped garlic until completely smooth.
Then add one tablespoon of olive or vegetable oil to a smooth consistency, while taking this opportunity to infuse your CBD oil.
This works particularly well when being added to butter, and it’s important that you allow time for the compound to infuse fully into the mix.
Then, mix in freshly chopped parsley, before transferring to a bowl to rest until serving. This can then be applied to your steak to create a truly delicious and ultimately satisfying meal.
