For the Butter and Steak:
½peeled and small diced sweet onion
4finely minced cloves of garlic
12ouncessoftened unsalted butter
2tablespoonsfresh chopped thyme
2tablespoonsfresh chopped rosemary
zest of 2 lemons
juice of 2 lemons
2 1-poundT Bone Steaks

For the Optional Baked Potato:
3large washed Idaho potatoes
3tablespoonsof olive oil
shredded cheddar cheese for garnish
chopped fresh chives for garnish
chopped crispy bacon for garnish
roasted garlic bulbs and tomatoes on the vine for garnish
Preheat the grill to high heat, 450° to 550°.
Butter: Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a medium-size saute pan over medium-low heat and cook the onions and garlic until lightly browned, about 5 to 7 minutes. See note.
Transfer the onions and garlic to a stand mixer with the whisk attachment along with the butter, lemon zest, lemon juice, thyme, rosemary, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and mix on medium speed for 5 to 7 minutes or until light and fluffy. See note.
Steak: Coat the steak in the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil on all sides and season the steak on all sides with salt and pepper and place on a very hot grill (450° to 550°).
Cook for 4 minutes, give a quarter turn and cook for 2 more minutes and then flip over cooking for another 2 minutes to achieve a rare to medium-rare internal temperature.
Rest the steak for 3 to 5 minutes before serving with the lemon butter, slicing and serving.
Optional Baked Potato: In a large bowl coat the potatoes with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 3 teaspoons of sea salt and poke some holes in the potatoes using a fork.
Once coated place on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper and place in the oven and bake at 375° for 60 minutes.
Chef Notes:• For the butter be sure to stir the onions and garlic every 30 seconds or so, so that they do not burn which can take place on the outer edges of the pan.• You can absolutely mix the butter using a whisk in a large bowl as long as the butter is soft enough or using an electric hand mixer.• You may not get the perfect grill marks, and that’s ok. The most important thing is that there are some caramelization, and marks on the steak and that it is cooked the perfect internal temperature. Grill marks are for show, nothing else!
