US Wellness Meats Week – Day 5: Brown Butter Hanger Steaks

For the final day of US Wellness Meats week, we wanted to do something extra special. We originally made this recipe back in August, the week after we came home from AHS in Los Angeles. In the course of doing so, we also shot some video of the cooking process. Unfortunately, at the time we decided to pair the beautiful video with a not-so-beautiful song and in retrospect, that really detracted from the end product. The song had a great beat, but some of the word choices were not ideal (if you know what we mean…). This recipe is outstanding, and today, we present to you the NEW video – which we promise is not offensive in any way.


Today is also the last day to enter our contest for a $100 US Wellness Meats gift card (win or lose, go visit their page and load up on some amazing grass-fed meat!). To enter, post a photo (and recipe) for your best beef dish on our Facebook fan page wall (or email it to us – either is fine). We’re going to pick our favorite entry, feature the recipe on our website (the first EVER user-created recipe on our site), and give the winner a $100 gift card to USWM. Entries close at 10:00 pm tonight, and the winner will be announced Tuesday morning here on the blog in an honorary blog post. SO, if you are entering today, or if you have already entered and need to brush up your entry – be sure to make it blog-post worthy. That means we need to have a list of ingredients, and instructions, and it never hurts to have a few sentences about the recipe itself. This is a CONTEST after all, so bring your A-game!

And finally, Memorial Day is this weekend! Many of you may be reading this and already on vacation. We have put together a nice collection of recipes for any Paleo Memorial Day BBQ. You can find it, and many other menu ideas, by clicking Menus at the top-navigation bar of the site. Or you can simply click here to be taken to our Memorial Day menu.

  1. Preheat oven to roast at 400.
  2. Rinse steak under cool water, and pat dry with a paper towel.
  3. Carefully trim any silver skin from the steak.
  4. Slow cooking will melt the tough tissue away, but when grilling, searing, or broiling, you want to make sure that this part of the meat is removed.
  5. Heat a cast iron skillet (or other oven-safe skillet) over medium heat.
  6. Add pasture butter to skillet, and cook until butter starts to brown.
  7. Sear steak in brown butter, 2-3 minutes a side, flipping once (for a thinner steak, try 1-2 minutes per side).
  8. During the last minute of searing on the second side, sprinkle the top of the steak with truffle salt, minced garlic, and top with lemon thyme sprigs.
  9. Remove from heat, and place skillet in the oven.
  10. Roast the steak for 10-15 minutes (for a thinner steak, try 7-10 minutes).
