Garlic Herb Butter

This is my first post.  I thought “what’s a better way to start then with a delicious staple for so many grilled meals?”  There is nothing better than a perfectly grilled steak topped with a delicious garlic herb butter.  My Garlic Herb Butter contains garlic(obviously) and dried rosemary.   I take a stick of butter out of the refrigerator and leave it out at room temperature until it softens.  Once it is soft, put it in a small mixing bowl add minced garlic, dried rosemary and then stir until it is all combined.

They key is to have the butter softened and it will all combine easily.

There are so many different herbs you can use.  I like rosemary for this recipe, as it goes very well with grilled steak.  You can use this recipe as a topping for almost anything that you are looking to kick up a notch.  Use this butter on bread as a spread or add it to a baked potato.  Replace it with anything that you usually put butter on.

If you are grilling a steak, add a slice of butter on top as you are pulling it off the grill.  The Garlic Herb Butter will begin to melt and cover your steak with a rich delicious sauce.  The aroma of the rosemary and garlic from this Garlic Herb Butter will get your taste buds in full gear.

Other Uses

Two other crowd-pleasing applications for this Garlic Herb Butter are as a spread on grilled toast as well as topping a baked potato.  Cut a thick slice of french baguet or other homemade bread.  Lay it on the grill until it gets light brown grill marks than lavishly spread the Garlic Herb Butter on the toast and enjoy.  It is a fantastic appetizer while the rest of the meal preparations are being made.
