Five stars for the butter! I seasoned my steaks the way I normally do. The butter is wonderful! For presentation, I'd freeze the butter, but to serve on the steak, room temp is better....it doesn't cool the steak off and melts wonderfully into the meat. Made for Best of 2009 Cookbook tag.

Five stars for the butter (because that is what this recipe is all about)! I made double the amount of butter, and am glad I did, because it is safely in my freezer waiting for the next steak, or hamburger, or baked potato, or corn on the cob, or whatever suits my fancy. Mind you, I am NOT a blue cheese fan, but loved it in this recipe. I agree that that steak itself could use some seasoning, but the butter is divine! Thanks for posting this delightful recipe.

Simple and good. I loved the butter! I thought that the steak needed a little more flavor - maybe I should have added more butter, lol. But it was a great combination of flavors. Will definitely do again. I also think that this butter would be wonderful on many veggies - including corn on the cob that I served with this steak. Thanks Babzy for a new keeper.

This was quite good and very simple to prepare always a plus on a week night. Only thing I will do the next time is increase the blue cheese and decease the butter, I liked the blue cheese taste, just wished there was more. Made for ZWT5
This is a great dish. The herb butter complemented the steak to perfection and the flavors meld together beautiful. Thanks Babzy for a wonderful dinner. Made for the Dining Daredevils team for ZWT5 Zingo.
MMMmmmm! Wow! So simple & so delicious! Made exactly as directed & we all were worried that plain steak on the BBQ was going to taste bland in the end. But we were more than satisfied with the incredible flavor imparted by the basil blue cheese butter. That combination is a total winner! And I was most surprised to see DH enjoy it even though it had blue cheese in it. One pat of butter was plenty for him, while DS & I used all three suggested. Since I was making 3 steaks I used some of the butter on plain boiled red potatoes as well & it was fabulous! I would not change a thing with this recipe. It's perfect! Thanks for posting, Babzy!

We loved this! I chickened out, and only used half of the tabasco called for, but I could barely taste it, so I will go with the full amount next time. For the steak, I used a spencer steak which was good, but had a bit too much fat to really work with the richness of the butter mixture. Next time I will use either a NY strip (as called for), or a beef tenderloin. At first, I really wondered about the combinataion of basil and blue cheese, but I was pleasantly suprised to find that it's a great combination. I almost added garlic to the butter, but it really doesn't need it. This is great, exactly as written. Thanks for posting a wonderful steak recipe! Made for ZWT5 by one of the Cooks with Dirty Faces.
