Stirrin' It Up: The Perfect Grilled Steak (June 16)

Prep Time: 30 Minutes

Yields: 12 Servings


Compound butters are butters flavored with other ingredients. When melted over a sizzling steak, fish or vegetables, it further enhances the dish. This recipe is also perfect for grilled oysters.


¼ pound butter

¼ cup mixed mushrooms, minced

2 tbsps minced red onion

1 tbsp minced red bell pepper

1 tbsp minced garlic

pinch chopped oregano

pinch chopped basil

pinch chopped thyme

¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

salt and red pepper flakes to taste

granulated garlic to taste


I recommend using a mixture of baby bella, oyster and button mushrooms. In a medium mixing bowl, cream all ingredients together. Mound in the center of a square piece of plastic wrap. Roll into a cylinder, sausage style, twisting at each end. Chill until firm. Cut into 12 equal slices.
