I love making a compound butter to enhance meats when they are cooked! This compound butter is perfect for grilled steak. It adds a nice succulent flavor to the meat. You can use this butter on so many things. It keeps well in the refrigerator, too! Give it a try the next time you make a nice steak! I used most recently on a nice thick ribeye!
Garlic & Herb Compound Butter (For Steak)
1 stick soften salted butter
1 T fresh thyme,finely chopped (1/2 T dried)
1 T fresh rosemary (1/2 T dried)
2 garlic cloves, finely grated
2 t onion powder
1/2 T olive oil
1 t salt
2 t black pepper
2 T grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Directions: In a small bowl add in the soften butter and smash down with a fork. Add in the olive oil, garlic, all seasoning and cheese if using. Mix really well. Next form into a ball and place on top of plastic wrap. Form the butter into whatever shape you want. I usually do a log like shape. Wrap well and put in the refrigerator for at least a few hours. When ready to use, slice and use on top of steak. Yum. So much flavor and so delicious! This will last about 1 week in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in the freezer.
