Up your steak game with this cilantro butter.


By SHAWN STONE

I read about this steak topper in one of Grady Spears' cookbooks and tried it one night with my wife. It’s been a favorite of ours ever since.

This cilantro butter can be used on meats, baked potatoes, as a dip and on corn on the cob.

But we like to on steak.

Once the steaks are about a minute away from being pulled off the grill, simply put a pat of butter on top and let it melt.

It’s delicious.

HERE’S HOW TO MAKE IT:

Set out two sticks of salted butter for about an hour to soften.

Finely chop a good amount of cilantro (sorry, I'm horrible about measuring) and squeeze the juice from two limes.

Using a mixer with a paddle, add all three ingredients and mix until well blended.

Spread the butter on butcher or parchment paper and roll into a log so that you can twist the ends of the paper.

Then set in the refrigerator to harden.
