When you work hard in the gym, you break down your muscles and cause micro-tearing. This stress is needed for your body to get stronger. However, for your body to repair itself properly, you need to refuel with the essential ingredients your body needs to create new muscle tissue.

Throw a 16 ounce ribeye in your pan and make this delicious recipe to give your body what it deserves. One steak gives you two meals with 40 grams of protein in each.

Stick to grass-fed meat and butter for this recipe. Why does the source of your food matter? Grass-fed beef is higher in antioxidants, vitamins, and healthy fats than conventional meat.

Our western diets are high in sugar from eating too many processed products. However, this recipe is sugar-free. Instead of using sweeteners, it relies on herbs like garlic and thyme for flavor.

Garlic contains several critical nutrients like the following:

  • Manganese
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin C
  • Selenium

There’s nothing worse than taking time off from the gym with illness. Garlic is a proven immune booster that can prevent infection and reduce the duration of sickness1.

Speaking of immune boosters, research also shows that thyme may help alleviate coughing from illness2. Thyme packs the following nutrients:

  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin A
  • Riboflavin
  • Iron

Ingredients

  • 16 oz ribeye
  • 2 tbsp grass-fed unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • coarse sea salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Rinse steak and pat dry. Season both sides well with salt and
    pepper. Let sit at room temp for about 15 minutes. 
  • In a large cast iron skillet, heat olive oil on high-heat. Add
    seasoned steak to hot pan and cook for about 5 minutes to get a
    good crust on it. Flip steaks and then add butter, garlic and thyme
    sprigs to the pan.
  • While the steak is cooking, take your spoon and start to
    continuously ladle the melted butter, garlic and thyme mixture
    over the top of the steak. Cook for an additional 5-7 minutes,
    which will give you a medium-rare steak. 
  • Once steak is cooked to your desired level of doneness, remove
    from pan. 
  • Spoon any of the remaining butter, garlic and thyme on top and
    place on a cutting board. 
  • Let rest for 5-10 minutes
