Looking for a simple way to jazz up a grilled steak? A compound butter may be the solution! What is a compound butter? Simply put, a compound butter is a mix of butter and herbs, spices, or other aromatic or flavourful ingredients. One on of my favourites is a garlic parsley compound butter.
The compound butter in this recipe is versatile. It can be used to finish a steak, or add when sautéing vegetables, or mushrooms.
To finish a steak, simply place a bit of the compound butter on the steak. As it melts, allow it to coat the surface of the steak.
This garlic parsley compound butter is a great alternative to a sauce for finishing a steak or grilled cut of beef.
Another way to dress up a steak to try is Chimichurri. Chimichurri gives your steak a light and summer taste, while this compound butter is more of a steakhouse style. Or try both!
Storing the compound butter
You can keep the butter in the fridge for a week. If you need to store it longer, wrap it in foil, and store it in the freezer. In the freezer, it will keep for a couple of months.
