To say that I love a good steak would be an understatement. I was born and raised in Idaho and a typical dinner was steak and potatoes. That is still my favorite meal to date. I tend to be a purist when it comes to my steak, I don’t use a lot of seasonings other than salt and pepper and I never use steak sauce. But…I will use a good steakhouse butter.
I found this delicious looking steakhouse garlic butter at Americanfood.about.com. We don’t cook a lot of steak in our house, but when we do I want to make it special. This butter was perfect. Took me just a few minutes to put together and I had all the ingredients in the house.
The original recipe calls for you to make it into a log so you can slice it and place it on the steak. I’m lazy so I just put it in a pretty bowl and stuck it in the fridge to keep it cold. Then I just took a spoon and put a dollop on each steak.
It was so good I put it on top of the mashed potatoes and a bit in the corn. Gives them a great buttery, garlic flavor.
- •1 stick unsalted butter
- •3 garlic cloves, crushed and finely minced
- •1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- •1/4 tsp black pepper
- •1/4 tsp salt, or to taste
- •1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley or you can use dried parsley
- Pull out a stick of unsalted butter and allow to come to room temperature. You want it to be soft enough to manipulate.
- Once the butter is soft enough, add the garlic cloves, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, salt and parsley.
- Mix well.
- Place into a bowl and refrigerate until you need it.
