Blue Cheese Compound Butter

Marie Holfeltz


I love the succulence of butter melted on top of a great steak. In the middle of canning today I decided to make hubs a great dinner. So, thawed out a couple of rib eyes, stuck holes in a couple of sweet potatoes (so I wouldn't have to clean my oven on top of everything else I was involved in LOL) and made cheddar chive biscuits with fresh ground black pepper added in...just cause I could. Then I thought...butter on the steak..hmmm..and upped the ante with blue cheese, garlic and horseradish. YummmY!!

8 (if 1 cube butter used)


10 Min


1 stick
unsalted butter - room temp
1/3 c
blue cheese crumbles
1 clove
garlic - grated
2 tsp
fresh grated horseradish
1/3 tsp
kosher salt - more or less as you like
1/4 tsp
freshly ground black pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

Add butter to a medium sized bowl and mash well with a fork
Add all other ingredients and mix well...with the same fork. Really mix it well so the flavors are distributed throughout the butter.
Scoop onto piece of cling-type wrap and, using the wrap, form into a log. Wrap well and refrigerate until about 15 minutes before you want to use it.
Slice into 1/4 inch medallions and, after you've flipped the grilling steak over, place butter on top and let it melt while steak finishes cooking.
