Flat Iron Steak with Herb Butter

Flat Iron Steak with Herb Butter

These juicy steaks are simple to prepare, needing only a quick sear in a hot iron pan. To simplify, prepare the herb butter in advance.André Baranowski

The herb butter for these steaks (from Brooklyn's Marlow & Sons) is an adaptation of a classic accompaniment called maitre d' butter.

Pairing note The peppery 2005 syrah from Napa Valley's Kuleto Estate ($45) is big and earthy, with plenty of acidity and deep blackberry flavors that stand up to this steak.
