Do you mean a mound of butter? A dollop maybe but a mound seems like a lot of butter.

Nils that looks great!

Callisto, if I am not mistaken, mounting with butter means putting butter on the steak. It is not a typo.

Ah, so it's just grammar, not typing.

Thanks GB. Ya, it's a classical French cooking technique - Monter au Beurre.

I have actually only seen "mount" used when talking about sauces. In that case to mount means to whisk cold pieces of butter into a sauce. I am not sure how that applies to steaks where you are just putting butter on top of the steak, but hey it works for me.

That seems to be what it means Beurre monte - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

To me you could use the word mount but you would have to use it as a verb. "I finished by mounting a dollop of butter on the steak."

Oh Nils - what a FABULOUS plate of perfectly cooked beef!!!! I'm SO jealous. My husband doesn't eat red meat, so I only get to make it for myself when he's away or when we dine out. He wouldn't mind if I just made it for myself, but it's such a pain to cook two separate meals. BUT - he does have a business trip planned for next month. After seeing your photo, I just may have to make some plans in advance to buy myself a really nice piece of beef to play with while he's gone. (Gee - that sounds a bit pornographic, doesn't it? LOL!)

That is a beautiful plate of beef, cooked just the way that I like it. I have never had the joy of eating Kobe beef. The only aged beef that I've eaten was from Gallagher's, if you can even classify that as aged.

I guess I'm overly confused on this one. Why would you take the best cut of beef and cook it in the worst way possible? I wouldn't pan fry the worst cut of beef for my worst enemy and I'd rather go hungry than pan fry a Kobe steak. It's sacrilege to me. And you still got monte au beurre wrong. And since your blog doesn't allow comments, you have several grammatical errors including incorrect spacing between sentences and incorrect sentence structure.
