Looking to add some great flavor to a steak? Make your own compound garlic butter! It’s easy and tastes great on any steak; along with potatoes, veggies and anything else you would put butter on!
This recipe is as simple as it gets, also, feel free to add any other spices that you like. For this particular batch I used:
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened – not melted
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 TBS chopped cilantro
1 Tsp of Tastefully Simple Garlic Garlic seasoning
You can use cilantro, parsley, dill or a combination of those or other similar herbs. You will still yield the same two sticks of butter. It keeps well in the refrigerator so make more than you need currently and then you will have it to make a quick piece of garlic bread or just about anything else where you would use butter on.
Using a hand mixer or Kitchen Aid mixer is best as you want to whip the softened butter to a fluff first. Next, add the Garlic Garlic seasoning, the minced garlic and then cilantro/parsley/dill and continue to mix. When you have a nice mixture that is even in color and texture transfer the garlic butter onto the middle of a sheet of wax paper. Parchment paper would also work I believe. Roll up the herb butter into a tube shape and then twist both ends. An hour later it will be plenty firm to use.
Once it has cooled to point it can be easily sliced, cut a slice about 1/4″ thick and when your steak is about a minute to a minute and half away from taking off the grill, place a slice on each piece of steak. Close the lid to your grill and then by the time you place it on the dinner table the butter will have melted with a nice looking dusting of the green herbs.
We added some of our garlic butter onto our baked potatoes as well, then added some Tastefully Simple’s Pink Peppercorn Blend.
The end result will be a perfectly seasoned dish of steak and baked potato. Simple and delicious!
