Lemon, fresh herbs and a hint of spice combine to create homemade “cowboy butter.” It’s the perfect accompaniment for grilled steak, chicken, fish and vegetables.
- To make the cowboy butter, cream together butter, lemon zest and juice, garlic, red pepper, mustard, parsley, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Place butter on plastic wrap; form into a log and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
- To make steak, let steaks sit at room temperature 30 minutes. Pat dry with a paper towel and sprinkle both sides generously with salt and pepper. Preheat grill to high heat. Place steak on grill and sear 3 minutes on each side. Turn heat down to low and cook 4-6 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 145-155°F for medium doneness.
- To make the steaks in the oven, preheat oven to 475°F. Preheat cast iron skillet over high heat. Place steak in pan and sear 3 minutes on each side; place pan in oven and cook 4-6 minutes more or until internal temperature reaches 145-155°F for medium doneness.
- To serve, top each steak with 2 tablespoons cowboy butter.
