The blackening spice on Jasmin's steak is perfect! It's a great mix of flavors without too much heat. What makes this steak, though, is the sweet potato compound butter. It's so good, I'm going to find other ways to use it. No need to head to your favorite steakhouse when you can create a steakhouse quality meal at home! The Test Kitchen
