Hai Chix & Steaks is a favorite among Metro Manila’s carnivores. Their premium steaks are—quite literally—to die for. They swim in pools of butter and pork fat, and comes with an equally sinful serving of steak rice. We hacked the recipe, and boy, did we all feel equal parts love and regret. Don’t blame us when you do, too.
Just like any steak recipe, the key really is great timing and the right temperatures. (Before you go tooting your horn—yes, we know our steak looks burnt. But it’s actually not; it was a perfect medium rare.) Our recipe accurately recreates the headache-inducing butter sauce. Though it doesn’t really need it, we recommend pouring any excess sauce into your steak rice.
