    Open the lid and add the butter to the hot skillet. Flip the steaks into the pan so the grilled side is face-up. Insert the probe into the center of a steak, avoiding the bone. Close the lid and cook, basting with the butter every couple of minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 125-130°F for medium-rare, 5-7 minutes, or your desired temperature.
