Makes 1 cup, enough for 16 steaks

Time: 20 minutes, plus 30 minutes to chill. Compound butter (butter blended with flavorings) is a great and simple way to add taste and texture to a dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Whirl ingredients in a food processor until smooth, about 2 minutes.

Step 2

Lay a piece of plastic wrap on a work surface. Using a rubber spatula, scrape butter lengthwise onto plastic. Lift top edge of plastic up and over butter to meet bottom edge of plastic. Roll butter toward you, evening it out into a log about 4 in. long. Twist ends of plastic to seal. Chill until firm, about 30 minutes.

Step 3

Remove plastic and slice off 1/4-in. portions (1 tbsp.) to serve over steaks.

Step 4

Make ahead: Up to 1 week chilled, or up to 1 month frozen, wrapped in several layers of plastic.
