Butter Ghee Crusted Steak Super Hungry? Jump to the Recipe

I'm of the belief that steak is best served golden brown and rare. And the secret to a perfect steak isn't some fancy marinade either - all you need is some salt, pepper, and ghee.

Ghee is a clarified butter generally used in Indian cooking, but has recently started trending amongst the health food community because of its awesome benefits, like being high in vitamins A and E and isn't restricted by dairy intolerance.

Plus, ghee has a higher smoking point than traditional butter so you can really get the skillet nice and hot, resulting in a perfectly golden, crispy, salt and pepper crusted steak.

Of course, after searing, let the steaks rest for a few minutes so they retain all their juices. And that's how you achieve the perfect steak!
