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. Sweet and savory with a hint of spice, you'll find other types of meat to use it on. No need to head to your favorite steakhouse when you can create a steakhouse quality meal at home.
