Recipe Summary



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place butter, kimchi, and kimchi liquid in a small bowl; using a fork, mash together until thoroughly combined. Transfer butter to a large piece of plastic wrap and shape into a log, using the plastic to help you. Wrap plastic tightly and transfer to refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up 1 week before using.

  • Preheat grill to high or preheat a grill pan over high heat. Drizzle steaks with sesame oil; season with red pepper powder, salt, and pepper. Place steaks on grill and cook, turning once, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare.

  • Transfer steaks to a cutting board and loosely cover with parchment paper-lined aluminum foil; let stand for 5 minutes.

  • Transfer steaks to four individual serving plates. Cut butter crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices; top steaks with butter slices and serve.
