Butter Garlic Steak
"The flavors in this steak dish are much more complex than the ingredients would suggest. Tender and succulent, this recipe will give you a true Fogo de Chão experience of true Brazilian goodness. For best results, it’s a good idea to go for high-quality ingredients like organic beef, grass-fed butter, and fresh seasoning. Eating steak on a keto diet can come with added health benefits. First of all, beef is rich in quality protein, zinc, B vitamins, iron, and selenium."
