Seriously, this is magic. Just magic.
Trust me on this one.
This was inspired by a recipe I saw in an issue of Bon Appétit a couple of years ago. It took me a while to get around to making it, but I’ve been doing this every time we’ve had steak this year.
- 1 stick unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
- 2 cloves garlic, grated (or minced very finely)
- 2 tsp hot sauce (or more to taste)
- salt and pepper
In a small bowl, mix everything together very well.
You can either cover the bowl and chill it as is, or spoon the butter onto some plastic wrap, form it into a log, and chill it that way, all wrapped up. I opted for the log method, but really, either way would work.
Slather onto hot steak, fresh from the grill. It will melt and coat everything and be just utterly delicious.
