  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Place the garlic cloves in a small ovenproof dish. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with foil and roast in the oven until the garlic is golden and soft, about 45 minutes. Set aside to cool completely.
  3. To a large bowl, add the softened butter, parsley, chives, thyme, red pepper and the roasted garlic. Using a spatula, mix everything together until well combined. Lay out a large piece of plastic wrap and add the butter in a long strip down the middle. Pull one side of the plastic wrap over the butter and gently form it into a log. Tightly twist the ends like a candy wrapper, until everything is nice and tight. Transfer to the fridge for a couple hours to harden. (Butter can be made ahead; it will keep for 1 week in the fridge.)
  4. When you are ready to cook the steaks, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  5. Sprinkle the steaks liberally with salt and pepper. Add the remaining tablespoon each olive oil and butter to an ovenproof skillet and place over a medium-high heat. When the oil is hot and the butter is melted, place the steaks in the skillet and cook until well browned, about 1 minute per side.
  6. Place the skillet in the oven and cook the steaks for 4 to 5 minutes for medium-rare. Remove from the oven and top each steak with a thick slice of the garlic butter. Loosely cover with foil and allow to rest for 8 to 10 minutes.
