Ready In:




  • Mix the butter, chilies, cilantro and tequila in a bowl to blend.
  • Lay a sheet of plastic wrap on a work surface. Spoon the chili butter over the center of the plastic wrap. Roll the chili butter into a cylinder. Refrigerate at least 2 to 3 hours or overnight.
  • Cut the chili butter log crosswise into 8 slices.
  • Sprinkle the steaks with salt and black pepper.
  • Prepare a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. (I used a cast iron skillet with one tablespoon of olive oil and one tablespoon of butter.).
  • Grill the steaks for five minutes. Turn the steaks over and top each with 2 of the chili butter slices. Continue grilling for 5 minutes for medium-rare doneness, or until the butter begins to melt.
  • Transfer the steaks to plates and serve.

    I made this back a couple months ago, tossed it in the freezer, and had it with steak last night. I've never had any butter on steak, but we were having sirloin, which was pretty lean, so the butter addition was nice. It added just a touch of spiciness, not too much heat, and made that cheap cut of meat taste like a top of the line steak. (Note - I did tenderize the steak.) This would be good on veges too.

    I love compound butters, and this is one of the better ones I've had! While it was delicious on the steak (I had 2 portherhouse steaks and 2 NY strip steaks), I think it would also be ideal on corn on the cob and other veggies. We really enjoyed our steak, and I will definitely make this again. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

<p>I love cooking for my family, but I don't exactly find it relaxing. I do it for the end result...something good to eat! I'm always trying out new recipes, which is why I love this website. It saves me a lot of time trying to figure out if a recipe is going to be worth making or not. My kids are 10, 8 and 6 years old, and are just starting to appreciate good food. I try to involve them in the kitchen as much as I can. My 6 year old loves to cook with me and is actually very good at helping. My 10 year old makes breakfast (toast) for his sisters in the morning when I'm too tired to move. And my 8 year old is always willing to stir anything that needs stirring. For some reason, (despite the fact that there are a million recipes I want to try) I have a really hard time trying to figure out what to make for dinner, even though my husband would be happy eating pizza every night! <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /></p>
