Many chiefs prefer to cook steak without any herbs, but personally, I do recommend to burn few sprigs of thyme or rosemary under the meat. This will make very gently aroma of herbs, which improved the taste of meat. Nevertheless, when cooking for the order, it is much better to know the preferences of everybody.
For the thin steaks it is not really necessary to use heavy cast iron skillet, the standard non-stick frying pan will do the job. Preheat non-stick pan and fry on high heat top blade steaks on one side for two minutes. Put some thyme sprigs under meat when roasting.
