Hot Sauce and Garlic Compound Butter

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.

You’ll need:

  • 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.
