Step 1: 

Pull Thawed Steak out of the fridge and rest to room temperature for 10-20 minutes.

Step 2:

Completely cover top of steak with salt and pepper. This will create a nice Bark when seared.

Step 3:

Using a spatula, spread softened butter over the seasoned side of the steak.

Step 4: 

While resting meat, heat up your cast iron to medium high heat or your griddle to 375 F.

Step 5: 

Rub pan or griddle down with olive oil.

Step 6: 

Place meat seasoned side down and sear for 3 minutes.

Step 7: 

While seasoned side is searing, season and butter the other side of the steak same as the opposite side. 

Step 8: 

Flip steak once 3 minutes has ended and reset timer.

Step 9: 

Sear until timer has ended.

Step 10: 

Let the meat rest for 4 minutes before serving.

Step 11: 

This will produce a medium rare steak. If wanting to cook up more, transfer to oven and insert meal thermometer. Pull steak once 5-10 degrees away from desired doneness.
