  2. Heat a heavy skillet large enough to hold all 4 steaks, over medium high heat. Add the butter and when it begins to foam add the steaks. Cook for 3 minutes, or until the bottoms are nicely browned. Turn the steaks and cook the other side for another 3 minutes for rare. Transfer to a warm platter and cover with aluminum foil.
