Directions

1. To make the butternut squash steaks: Cut the neck off of the butternut squash and keep the base for another use. Cut the stem from the end and peel. Cut the squash in four slices lengthwise and trim off the outer rounded sides. You’ll get four butternut steaks, about 1/2 inch thick.

2. Heat oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Cook the butternut squash steaks, turning every 3 minutes until deeply browned on both sides and fork-tender, about 10 minutes.

3. Add butter, oregano, and garlic to skillet, tilt pan toward you so that butter pools on one side, and use a large spoon to continually baste the squash steaks with the butter sauce. Continue cooking, basting continuously, until butter is no longer bubbling and begins to brown, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice. 

4. Remove from the skillet, transfer butternut squash steaks to plates and spoon the garlic butter sauce over. Sprinkle with coarse salt and fresh cracked pepper if you like. Enjoy! ❤️
