Cooking Instructions

Step 1

Combine marinade ingredients in mixing bowl. Dress steaks and marinate chilled (up to 24 hours).

Step 2

One hour prior to cooking, remove steaks from refrigerator and bring to room temperature.

Step 3

Prepare a medium-hot grill or broiler. Coat cooking surface with oil to prevent sticking. Place moistened cedar plank (soaked in water 2 hours) on grilling/ broiling surface, heating until smoke begins. Season steak with salt and pepper, and place onto grill/ broiler, cook 2 ½ minutes per side or until nicely marked.

Step 4

Transfer steaks onto cedar plank, cover grill/ broiler and finish cooking for 5-7 minutes. Remove steak and allow to rest for 4-5 minutes. Reserve any juices released from the steak.

Step 5

Prepare butter, warm honey and rosemary in microwave for 10-15 seconds. Add warmed honey-rosemary mixture to butter, add cider vinegar, seasonings, any reserved cooking juices, mix well and reserve.

Step 6

Slice steaks on bias at a 45-degree angle. Transfer to serving platter; drizzle with Sweet Honey-Rosemary Butter, serve and enjoy!
