This elegant dish features tender, juicy steak smothered in a rich garlic butter sauce, paired with creamy mashed potatoes. It’s perfect for special occasions or when you want to treat yourself to a restaurant-quality meal at home.


2. **Cook the Steak:** In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the steaks and cook until a deep brown crust forms on the bottom, about 3-4 minutes. Flip the steaks and add 2 tablespoons of butter, minced garlic, thyme, and rosemary to the skillet.


3. **Baste the Steak:** Tilt the skillet slightly and use a spoon to baste the steaks with the melted garlic butter and herbs. Continue to cook until the steaks reach your desired doneness (130°F for medium-rare, 140°F for medium), about 3-4 minutes more. Remove the steaks from the skillet and let them rest for 5 minutes.


4. **Make the Garlic Butter Sauce:** In the same skillet, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Allow it to melt and mix with the pan drippings. Scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Pour the garlic butter sauce over the rested steaks.


#### Assemble the Dish:
1. **Plate the Potatoes:** Spoon a generous serving of creamy mashed potatoes onto each plate.

2. **Add the Steak:** Place the garlic butter steak alongside the mashed potatoes.

3. **Garnish and Serve:** Garnish with chopped fresh parsley. Serve immediately, enjoying the tender steak with the creamy mashed potatoes.

### Tips:
– **Steak Doneness:** Use a meat thermometer to ensure the steak is cooked to your preferred level of doneness. Allow the steak to rest to retain its juices.
– **Mashed Potato Variations:** For extra flavor, you can add roasted garlic, grated Parmesan, or cream cheese to the mashed potatoes.
– **Butter Alternatives:** For a different flavor, try using compound butter with herbs and lemon zest.

For the Steak:

  • 2 ribeye steaks (about 1 inch thick)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Creamy Mashed Potatoes:

  • 4 large russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh chives, chopped (optional, for garnish)


Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

For the Mashed Potatoes:

Place the peeled and cubed potatoes in a large pot. Cover with water and add a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes.
Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Add the heavy cream, butter, and sour cream. Mash until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Keep warm.
For the Steak:

Season the ribeye steaks generously with salt and pepper on both sides.
In a large oven-safe skillet, melt 4 tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic, fresh thyme, and rosemary.
Once the butter is melted and fragrant, add the steaks to the skillet. Sear the steaks for 2-3 minutes on each side until a golden-brown crust forms.
Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and continue to cook the steaks to your desired doneness, about 5-7 minutes for medium-rare.
Remove the steaks from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes.
To Serve:

Plate the creamy mashed potatoes and top with a juicy garlic butter steak. Drizzle any remaining garlic butter from the skillet over the steaks.
Garnish with chopped fresh chives if desired. Serve hot and enjoy!
