METHOD: STEAK AND PRAWNS
Remove steaks from the fridge 30 min prior to cooking, season aggressively with salt and pepper. Warm Canola oil in a heavy bottom Sauté Pan over medium high heat, brown the sirloin and sear well on both sides (approximately 4 to 6min per side). When all sides are brown add 2 tablespoons of garlic butter, thyme, and rosemary. Baste until you reach the desired temperature, being careful not to brown the butter. Transfer steaks to a resting rack, and pour the herbs and butter over the steaks. Let rest for 12 to 15 minutes. In the same pan, (while the steaks are resting) add the remaining 2 tablespoons of garlic butter. Gently melt until the butter starts to foam. Add the Prawns and roast in the garlic butter approximately 3 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and place on top of the steaks.

Bourbon au Poivre
After the prawns are cooked, pour off all but 2 tbs of butter from the pan. Add the shallots, and cook for 2 minutes. Lightly chop the peppercorns and capers together. Add to the pan and cook for more 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and deglaze with the bourbon. Reduce until almost dry. Add the hot veal stock and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes. Just before serving, whisk in the Dijon and fold in the chives. Check the seasoning. Adjust acidity with fresh lemon juice if needed. Spoon the sauce over the Steak and Prawns. Serve Immediately.
