BBQ Explorers say:

The Proware Kitchen Stainless steel sauté pan is ideal for this steak dish. The steak is flavoured with rosemary, thyme, butter, and garlic. It’s delicious and easily created on your bbq!

Rosemary and thyme sprigs are great with steak and garlic adds a strong flavour that complements the steak brilliantly. Butter not only adds a lovely flavour to the steak and also helps to make it juicier.

Serves: 1 or 2, depending on how many steaks you have


  • Your favourite thick cut of steak
  • 3 sprigs of thyme
  • 3 sprigs of rosemary
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons of rapeseed oil for frying
  • 75 grams of unsalted butter
  • New potatoes
  • Salad
  • Tomatoes


Cooking Method

  1.  Remove your steak from the fridge and let it sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes prior to preparing it.
  2. Pat the steak dry with a paper towel, and then generously season with pepper and salt. Make sure to season the top, bottom, and sides of the steak.
  3. Heat your stainless steel sauté pan directly over the charcoal on your bbq to a high temperature. Once the pan is hot pour in the rapeseed oil and add the seasoned steak to the pan.
  4. Cook the steak for 30 seconds on the top, bottom and sides. Next, add the butter, herbs, and crushed garlic.
  5. As the butter melts, begin basting the steak with the garlic and herb-infused butter and keep turning.
  6. Next, remove from the pan once it hits the internal temperature that’s right for you. Meat thermometers are easy to use and ensure that you always have great tasting steak cooked the way you like it.
  7. For a medium rare steak the temperature should be between 54 to 57°C, medium would be 57 to 63°C, medium well done would be 63-68°C and well done would be 68°C and above.
  8. Once out of the pan, let the steak rest for 5 minutes before serving. We served the dish with a tomato salad and new potatoes. Absolutely delicious.
