Just FFR, Ruth's Chris doesn't
use a griddle. They use a broiler and they also heat the plates in the same broiler. The steak is then put on the plate and liquified butter is poured on to the steak/plate before it is carried out of the kitchen - resulting in the sizzle you hear when the plate is placed in front of you.
