An Herb Compound Butter to Take Your Steak to the Next Level |

An Herb Compound Butter to Take Your Steak to the Next Level


  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely minced
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • 11/2 tablespoons fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, chives, oregano, etc.)


Whipped Compound Butter

Place parsley and herbs into a food processor and drizzle with olive oil. Process until the herbs infuse the oil and become like a paste. Or, finely mince the herbs by hand and in a small bowl, drizzle olive oil and mix thoroughly. Using the whisk attachment on a stand mixer, whip the butter until it becomes soft and light, about 5 minutes. Add the herbs and beat for another 2 minutes or until it is fully incorporated.

Spoon the butter onto parchment paper or plastic wrap. Roll into a tight log and chill for 2 hours before serving.

Fork Method

Place softened butter into a bowl, and with a fork, break it up. Then add the salt, and fresh herbs, and blend well.

Transfer the butter onto a piece of parchment paper or plastic wrap, and form into a tight log. Chill for 2 hours before slicing and serving.
