Herb-Buttered Steak & Spinach (Bulletproof)
Health Highlights


1 tbsp Coconut oil (or Brain Octane Oil, room temperature)
142 gm New York striploin, steak (two 2.5 oz steaks, room temperature, any cut you prefer)
4 lemon wedge Lemon
2 tsp Lemon peel (zest)
1 tsp Lemon juice
4 tbsp Butter, grass fed, unsalted
1 tbsp Chives (minced, or parsley or dill)
1 tbsp Oregano, fresh (chopped)
1 tbsp Thyme, fresh (chopped)
1 tsp Sea Salt (to taste)
6 cup Spinach (lightly steamed)


  1. Rub steak with coconut oil and set aside.
  2. Grate 2 tsp of zest (avoid grating down to the bitter pith [the white part], you only want the citrusy yellow part of the peel). 
  3. Squeeze out 1 tsp of lemon juice, and set the remaining wedges aside.
  4. In a small bowl, combine butter, lemon zest, chives, herbs, and 1 tsp sea salt. Mix well to form compound herb butter. Stir in the lemon juice until incorporated.
  5. Heat a grill pan (or actual grill) to medium-high heat. Season your steak with sea salt and place in the pan. You should hear it sizzle.
  6. Reduce the heat to medium-low to avoid charring the steak. Cook 5-6 minutes per side for rare, 6-7 minutes per side for medium-rare. 
  7. Transfer steak to a plate, top with half the herb butter, and let rest for 5 minutes (reserve the rest of the butter for the leftovers). 
  8. Cut the steak thinly across the grain, and serve on top of a bed of steamed spinach. Top with drippings from the pan and a squeeze of lemon.
