Nothing fancy here - just good, old-fashioned steak prepared with garlic and butter. Dining Car Steak makes a mouthwatering dinner that your family will love. It feels like fine dining, but is as easy as your favorite weeknight dinner. Lucky for you, you don't need to board a train to experience luxury!

What You'll Need

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 strip steaks (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. In a small bowl, combine butter, garlic, lemon juice, and parsley; mix well. Spoon mixture down the center of a 12-inch-square piece of wax paper and roll into a 1-inch-thick log. Wrap ends tightly and refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm.
     

  2. Meanwhile, sprinkle both sides of the steaks with onion powder, salt, and pepper. 
     

  3. In a grill pan or on your grill over medium-high heat, cook steaks 10 to 12 minutes or until desired doneness, turning halfway through. If you are using a meat thermometer, the temperature should be 135 degrees for medium-rare.
     

  4. Place steaks on a platter and top each with a couple of slices of the herbed butter.  The heat from the steaks will melt the butter and flavor the steaks. Store any unused herbed butter in the refrigerator.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

A quick compound butter with garlic and herbs can really come in handy for a lot of quick main courses, as well as last minute sides. Toss a few tablespoons in a skillet and add some shrimp for a quick scampi, or spread softened garlic butter on slices of crusty French bread and toast for a few minutes. Use whatever herbs and spices you like and create your own!

How is Delmonico steak prepared? My store didn't know what I was talking about. So, can I prepare them myself?

Hi! Thank you for your comment! Delmonico steak refers to a method of preparation from one of several cuts of beef, typically, rib eye or strip steak. Either one of these cuts of meat will be delicious with this recipe. Have a great day!

Exactly which cut of beef are you calling a Delmonico steak? It is my understanding that the definition has changed over time. Please enlighten us all! Boneless rib-eye, bone-in top loin, or boneless top loin strip steak?
