Compound Steak Butter

One secret to a delicious steak is in the making of a compound  steak butter- to add a little bit of delicious  flavor to an already  perfect grilled steak.

Compound  Steak Butter

By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime

My recipe  of the day is for compound  steak butter just  in time for Father’s Day! I know I  have promised  some  people I would get this up this  month and  had not gotten around  to it  until now.

What is Compound Butter?

Compound  butter is butter that has been infused with  flavors.  You  may  have had herb butter for your  dinner rolls from time to time.  This butter in  particular is made for  those who like to top their grilled steaks with a knob  of  butter, which adds tons of flavor.

Who Needs the Steak Sauce?

The flavors I have added to this one seem  particularly suited to go  on a steak- intense  beef flavor,  garlic, salt, lots of black pepper, and Worcestershire. Just like it is, I don’t need anything else on my steak, no A-1 or anything like that.

Treat Dad to  Steak

So treat Dad to steak this Father’s Dad and let  him enjoy himself at the table. I  also have listed a few other steak recipes of mine,  as well as included some links to offerings from some of my blogging friends.
