Grilled Steak with Garlic Herb Compound Butter


Serves: 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

Comments

While low in carbs, the butter and steak combination results in high saturated fats, so save it for that special occasion. Also, there is a large variation in fat and calories among steaks, so choose a lean version to limit the fat and calories. The compound butter can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to one month. It also makes a great sauce for chicken or fish.

Ingredients

1 1/4 pounds steak, New York or Rib Eye, lean, fat trimmed

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper, black, ground

2 tablespoon(s) butter, light

2 teaspoons garlic, bottled minced

2 teaspoons parsley, fresh, chopped

2 teaspoons tarragon, fresh, chopped

1/2 teaspoon pepper, black, ground

2 teaspoons olive oil

Preparation

Remove steaks from refrigerator and set on counter to remove chill before cooking. Meanwhile, place butter in a microwave safe bowl and soften in microwave for 8 to 10 seconds (do not melt). Add garlic, parsley, tarragon, black pepper to butter and mix well. Spoon butter onto a sheet of wax paper. Roll into a small tube and place in refrigerator to chill until serving (can be refrigerated for up to 1 month in a zip lock bag). Season steaks sith salt, pepper and olive oil. Preheat an outdoor grill or skillet to medium high heat, and cook steaks turning after about 4 minutes and cooking until desired doneness. Remove to a plate and cover with foil, allowing steak to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before cutting. Slice the compound butter and serve on top of each steak. Other variations of compound butter: add 1 teaspoon pesto or 1 teaspoon chopped sundried tomatoes.
