This recipe for Steak with Thyme Butter and Fried Polenta promises an engaging culinary experience. The succulent steak is enhanced by the aromatic thyme butter, while the fried polenta, a traditional Italian dish made from cornmeal, adds a crispy texture and a contrast of flavors


  • 1 Minerva beef steak
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • Ground black pepper to taste


  • 2 cups fine cornmeal
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 800ml boiling water
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 small onion, grated


For the Polenta:

Crush the thyme leaves with sea salt until forming a paste, mix with butter and set aside.

Dissolve cornmeal in 2 cups of cold water, bring a pot to medium heat and add olive oil, onion, garlic, and salt, stirring well until golden brown.

Then, add the cornmeal already diluted in all the water, stirring with a spoon or spatula, for about 20 minutes, until obtaining a firm consistency in the polenta.

Pour into a container and let cool, cut into pieces, coat in cornmeal while the pieces are still warm, and fry in very hot oil.

For the Steak:

Season the steak with salt and pepper and sear for 2 minutes on each side.

Add the butter, drizzling over the entire meat as it melts, and fry for an additional 1 minute on each side.

Serve the steak with the fried polenta.
