Author Toni Dash


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Gourmet Garden Lightly Dried Chives
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Gourmet Garden Lightly Dried Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Gourmet Garden Lightly Dried Chili Pepper
  • 2 teaspoon Gourmet Garden Stir-In Chunky Garlic
  • 1-inch thick New York Strip Steaks (quantity to suit need), room temperature
  • Freshly ground pepper


Instructions for Easy Herb Compound Butter:

  • In a mixing bowl (standing or handheld mixer) cream together the softened butter. Add the herbs and mix just to incorporate.
  • On a sheet of plastic wrap, spoon the butter mixture into a log shape (about 2 inches in diameter). Use a spatula to gently form the log shape.
  • Fold one side of the plastic wrap tightly over the compound butter and roll over the remaining plastic wrap so the compound butter is totally enclosed. Twist the ends of the plastic wrap tightly to the end of the compound butter log. Place in the refrigerator until hardened.

Instructions for grilling the steaks:

  • Heat a grill to 450 degrees. Clean/brush and oil the grill. Place the room temperature steaks on the grill for 2 minutes. With heatproof tongs, rotate the steaks 45 degrees and grill an additional 2 minutes. Watch for grill flare ups (can grill with lid up or down) and spray any with water to prevent burning the steaks.
  • Turn the steaks over and grill 2 minutes. Rotate 45 degrees and grill a final 2 minutes. Remove steaks from the grill, sprinkle with fresh pepper, add a tablespoon of the compound butter per steak and allow them to rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.
