From Mason City, IA

Ingredients

1 ½ to 2 sticks of unsalted butter
2 T Greek seasoning
2 t garlic powder
2 t season salt
1 crushed chicken bouillon cube

Preparation

Put all in a baking dish in oven until melted. Add steaks, cook 7 min each side for med rare. 10 – 15 for med well 350˚. It will do as many steaks as will fit in your pan. I have done 6-8. This is also real good using pork chops. (This may be a bit salty for some so you can use a salt free season salt if you want.)
