A thyme-infused butter enhances the flavor of this skillet-seared steak, inspired by one at Prime Steakhouse, at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Pair it with homemade Black Pepper-Horseradish Zabaglione or Miso-Mustard Butter sauce. This recipe first appeared in our April 2012 issue along with Max Jacobson's story Dining Like a Rhinestone Cowboy.
