Take your summer grilling up a notch with Herb Butter For Steaks! Top a perfectly grilled juicy steak with a simple herb flavored butter compound to add another layer of deliciousness!
My husband loves to grill on our BBQ, and one of his absolute favorite things to grill is a nice steak (rib-eyes are his personal favorite). I don’t eat too much steak, but I did have a good sized piece last tie we grilled them, because I wanted to try this herb butter added to the cooked meat.
Many restaurants serve their grilled steaks with a nice pad of flavored butter, because it adds just the perfect finishing touch to a good steak. I searched for and found a recipe on Pinterest that interested me, so I set out to try it! It’s so EASY to make, and it did add another layer of flavor to some pretty tasty steaks!

What Ingredients Are Needed For Herb Butter For Steaks?
The necessary items for this herb butter for steaks are only a few simple ingredients: softened butter, lemon zest, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and freshly chopped flat leaf parsley! That’s it!
Mix softened butter with all the other ingredients until fully combined. You will definitely want to use room temperature butter so it mixes easily. A fork will easily mix the ingredients. Once done, set the herb butter for steaks aside, until the meat is finished cooking.
Season your steaks with your favorite seasoning. Our favorite is Montreal seasoning (found in most stores). We lightly seasoned the rib-eye steaks after removing them from the refrigerator and let them sit for 30 minutes to take off the chill.
The Grillmeister At Work
Onto the old Weber charcoal grill they went, and my hubby Ken (the official “GRILLMEISTER”) cooked them until they reached the desired doneness. I think the smoke from the BBQ must have affected his eyes, cause he’s trying to pour lighter fluid into his wine glass! Ha Ha.
Once done, he removed the meat from the grill, and brought it in to be crowned with the waiting herb butter for steaks!
To Add The Herb Butter
I find it really convenient to use a small cookie dough scoop to top the steaks with the butter. You can also use a rounded Tablespoon of the herb butter. Both will work well!
Top Meat With Herb Butter For Steaks
As soon as steaks are off the grill, transfer them to a serving platter. Immediately top each steak with a small scoop of herb butter. The heat from the steaks will begin to melt the butter and herbs onto the top of the meat.
As the herb butter melts, it covers the top of the meat, and adds additional spices and flavor finish to a great steak! Let the steaks rest for a few minutes before serving, to allow time for the butter to melt AND for the internal juices in the steak to redistribute throughout the meat.
That’s all you need to do to add this simple finishing touch to your favorite steak! I told you it was EASY! I really hope you will consider trying this little add-on the next time you cook a steak, and hope you enjoy the extra pop of flavor it adds!
The steaks would taste great served with Easy Grilled Corn On The Cob or Grilled Summer Veggies. Both of these delicious side dishes can also be cooked on the BBQ, which really helps to keep the ol’ kitchen cool during the heat of summer!
