Just add a dab of herb butter to your next steak and I promise you it will taste amaze-balls. Yes, I said it, “amaze-balls”. My kids hate it when I say that word, so I say it even more just to rile them up. Its either that or “awesome-sauce”, but I’m even sick of that one. I need to come up with something new.
Okay, back to this buttery steak…Steaks on the grill are the iconic summertime meal and as you can see I am not ready to give up on summer dishes yet. These rib-eye steaks are topped with butter that’s loaded with fresh cilantro and parsley, garlic, and lemon juice. As the butter melts, the herbs and lemon start to ooze over the steak and then the angels sing…Hallelujah-Aleluia-Aleluya.
Rib-Eye Steak with Cilantro Lemon Butter
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature (slightly softened)
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
4 (8 to 10 ounce) rib-eye steaks
Mix together butter, cilantro, parsley, garlic, lemon juice, with a pinch of salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Refrigerate until set.
Heat grill to medium-high heat.
Sprinkle steaks generously with salt and pepper. Add steaks to grill and cook for about 5 minutes per side for medium.
Transfer to a platter, place a heaping tablespoon of flavored butter on top of each steak, tent with foil to keep warm, and let rest for 5 minutes.
I’d love to see what you cook!
