  • In a medium mixing bowl blend the ingredients for the compound butter together until well combined. Using a piece of plastic wrap, secure butter inside plastic wrap then shape butter into a log. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
  • If steak has been in the fridge let it come to room temperature for at least 30 minutes before cooking.
  • Heat grill to 400F, place steak on grill and cook 6-7 minutes per side for medium rare.
  • Take steak off the grill and place 1 Tbsp of compound butter per 6-8oz of steak. Let rest 10 minutes per 1 inch thickness.
