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!!

How to Make Blue Cheese Compound Butter


  1. Add butter to a medium sized bowl and mash well with a fork
  2. Add all other ingredients and mix well...with the same fork. Really mix it well so the flavors are distributed throughout the butter.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
