A simple steakhouse-style rib-eye steak is doused in and served with a soy sauce and butter glazed for a perfectly rich salty, caramelized flavor.

Soy Butter Glazed Steak

Ingredients
  1. 1 thick-cut rib-eye steak
  2. Salt and pepper to taste
  3. 3 tablespoons melted butter
  4. ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
Instructions
  • If you're using a frozen steak, make sure that it's thoroughly thawed prior to cooking. Rinse the steak under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle on all sides with salt and pepper, to taste. Heat your grill to the max heat--that means at least three of the burners on full blast high, and keeping the lid closed for a good 5-10 minutes.
  • Mix the melted butter together with the soy sauce in a small bowl. When the grill is heated, put the steak on the grill, letting it brown for about 1-2 minutes. You can close the grill lid to let the heat build up and get some nice caramelization on the edges of the steak. After 1-2 minutes, turn the steak 45 degrees to get those pretty grill marks. Let cook again for 1-2 minutes. Flip the steak and repeat the above steps for the other side.
  • When the steak is pretty well-browned on both sides, use your tongs lift up the steak and brown the edges. Thick cut steaks need TLC on the edges too! Now for the soy-butter glaze. Liberally brush the steak with the soy-butter mixture using a heat-proof basting brush. Flip the steak and brush the other side. You may want to wear an oven mitt for this process, as the butter may cause some fairly strong flame-ups. The glaze will make the steak perfectly caramelized and charred on the outside! Those grill marks we worked on earlier add the perfect uniformity of char and color!
