Prepared by Rosemary Salt
A classic preparation of 7X steak calls for only salt and black pepper, but Chef Rob Zack adds some herbal interest with this homebrew mixture. It uses the steak-friendly herbs rosemary and sage, with the subtle bite of fresh garlic and a zip of lemon. Chef Zack uses this mix on 7X tenderloin, and bastes with a bit of melted butter as it finishes in the oven.
1 cup kosher salt | ¾ cup fresh rosemary leaves | ½ cup fresh sage leaves | 6 cloves garlic | 2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper | Zest of ½ medium lemon
Add ingredients to a food processor and pulse until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Season 7X beef with this mixture when finishing in the oven; adding prior to pan searing may singe the fresh ingredients.
