When asked why Midwesterners prepare their beef well-done, President Truman responded that "only coyotes and predatory animals eat raw beef." Regardless of how you cook your steak, you'll love this traditional beef entree seasoned with butter, herbs and garlic. Serve it with French onion soup and a green salad to round out the meal.
