Today’s 5 star secret recipe is for a wonderfully flavored steak from Luce in Portland, Oregon. The secret to this dish is steeping fresh rosemary in olive oil. Cooking the steak with this flavored oil and garlic adds a fresh and vibrant flavor to this dish.
Luce is run by a couple with deep Italian roots and the wonderful flavors on their menu reflect that. They serve house-made pastas and seasonal entrees along with a fantastic wine list.

New 5 Star Secret Recipe
3/4 cup plus 7 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
1/4 cup 1-inch pieces rosemary sprigs
1 1/2 pounds hanger or flank steaks, cut into four 6-ounce steaks
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
6 large garlic cloves, sliced
Coarse sea salt (such as Maldon)
Heat 3/4 cup oil and rosemary in a small saucepan over medium heat until oil begins to bubble and an instant-read thermometer registers 140°, about 2 minutes. Let steep at room temperature for at least 2 hours or cover and chill overnight (the longer it steeps, the more flavorful it will be). Strain oil; discard rosemary. Set rosemary oil aside.
Rub steaks with 1 Tbsp. olive oil; season generously with kosher salt and pepper. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large heavy skillet over high heat until it begins to shimmer. Quickly sear steaks on all sides and transfer to a cutting board (they will still be quite rare; you’ll finish cooking them shortly). Let rest for 10 minutes. Clean and dry skillet.
Cook remaining 4 Tbsp. oil and garlic in skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally, until garlic is dark brown but not burnt, 3–4 minutes. Remove pan from heat; discard garlic. Transfer 2 Tbsp. garlic oil to a small bowl; reserve.
Cut steaks against the grain into 1/3-inch-thick slices. Heat remaining garlic oil in skillet over medium heat until it shimmers. Add half of sliced steak to skillet and cook, turning once, until cooked to desired doneness, 1–2 minutes for medium-rare. Add 1 Tbsp. rosemary oil; toss. Transfer steak and oil to a platter. Repeat with reserved garlic oil, steak, and 1 Tbsp. rosemary oil.
Sprinkle with sea salt and drizzle with more rosemary oil, if desired.
