It doesn’t require too much of a cook time and you won’t really need a meat thermometer either. And while that steak is resting, go ahead and fry your eggs in that same cast iron skillet. If fried eggs are not your jam, scrambled eggs are also perfect here. Just be sure to drizzle that fresh herb sauce everywhere.
So quick, easy, and fancy pants without any of the hard work! Served with the most amazing herb sauce. SO SO GOOD.
