Grilled Strip Steak with Herb Butter

Serves 2
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, 3/4 inch thick (about 1 pound)


  1. Combine butter, parsley, and garlic in a small bowl and chill until just firm.
  2. Preheat grill pan over high heat. Generously salt and pepper steaks on both sides. Place on grill; do not move and cook for 3 minutes. Turn and cook 3 minutes more for medium rare, about 135 degrees.
  3. Remove the steaks from the grill. Divide the compound butter and place on top. Serve hot.
