It’s no secret that everything made with butter is better, and that’s why I can’t keep silent about this steak dinner anymore. Tender steaks are grilled in a piping hot melted butter saucepan, and then fresh herb butter is added before serving. Whether you pair it with chewy noodles or crispy broccoli, be sure to drizzle the whole plate with warm herb compound butter from the pan.
Herb Butter Is the Elegant Answer for Easy Seasoning
Creamy butter can add flavor on its own, but when you are ready with a little extra, it's time to use compound butter. Here is how to make it in two simple steps.
Bring the butter to room temperature. Let the butter sit at room temperature until it becomes soft, which makes it easier to mix. If time is tight, cut the butter into spoon-sized pieces to speed up the softening. Both salted and unsalted butter are fine, but I prefer unsalted butter so that I can control the degree of seasoning.
Add chopped fresh herbs. For steak, I like the combination of fresh rosemary, thyme and parsley-I also reserved some to sprinkle on the finished dish. Stir long enough to fully blend in the herbs. If you have extra vanilla to use up, please continue to make two batches of vanilla butter, then wrap it in parchment paper and freeze for three months.
