Simple Steak in a Garlic Butter Sauce March 11, 2009

This recipe is for the garlic lover, butter lover, and steak lover in all of us.  I think the food pyramid should consist of sections just for garlic and butter. They are staples of cooking and therefore they are good enough for my pyramid.  Of course, there will be a dedicated section for steak and the like.  This recipe can be done with any piece of your favorite steak, we use sirloin this week.
