  1. 1

    Prep squash

    • Cut neck off of squash; the base can be saved for another use. Remove stem and peel neck. Cut neck lengthwise into ¾"-thick steaks (about 6 oz per steak).
    • In small bowl, combine butternut squash, 2 tablespoons oil and a pinch of salt and pepper; mix well.
    • Evenly place squash in all zones of Brava metal tray.

    Cook Squash

    • While food cooks, prepare sage brown butter.

  3. 3

    Make sage brown butter

    • Melt butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add sage and garlic. Cook until butter is no longer bubbling, smells nutty, and is beginning to brown, about 1-2 minutes. Be careful not to burn butter or garlic. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice; season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
