Grilled Strip Steak with Herb Butter


Garlic-parsley butter dresses up a simple strip steak for a quick and impressive dinner.


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 small garlic clove, minced

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 strip steaks, ¾ inch thick (about 1 pound)


  1. Combine butter, parsley, and garlic in a small bowl and chill until just firm.
