    Had a craving for a good steak and this one definitely inspired me. Because it was my first time making and using anchovy butter, I was conservative with my use of anchovies, using approx 5. I also substituted flat-leaf parsley for thyme and added a few capers to the anchovy butter. An absolute success and I will definitely enjoy it again and again!
