As you can see, between butter and oil, butter has a dramatically lower smoke point.

Why do restaurant steaks taste better?
It’s all about the butter Your steak probably tastes better at a steakhouse because we use lots (and lots) of butter. Even the dishes that aren’t served with a pat of butter on top are likely doused with a ladle of clarified butter to give the steak a glossy sheen and a rich finish.
