After making Smoked Garlic Olive Oil, I decided to make Steak with Smoked Garlic Butter as a way to use the extra garlic.
You could also use Whole Smoked Garlic in the same butter.
This recipe is like a cowboy butter, but it’s extra special because of the smoked garlicy goodness!
How to Make Steak with Smoked Garlic Butter
First put a stick of butter that has been sitting at room temperature in a food processor.
Then add 6 to 8 cloves of the smoked garlic.
I mean, you really could add as much as you like 😉
And some lemon juice, lemon zest, fresh thyme or chives, kosher salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.
Blend the butter until smooth.
You can make the butter ahead of time and store it in a covered container in the fridge.
You can use any steak that you like, these are New York strips.
Brush the steaks with olive oil and season well with kosher salt and pepper.
You can also use your favorite steak seasoning if you’d like.
Preheat the grill to medium high for several minutes.
And grill the steaks 3 to 5 minutes per side.
Cook time will depend on how thick the steaks are and how you like your steaks cooked.
I went with 3 minutes per side for a perfect medium rare.
Let the steaks rest and put a dollop of the smoked garlic butter over top before serving.
Steak with Smoked Garlic Butter is the perfect summertime dinner!
Ohhh… and if you make extra butter it is great on baked potatoes, bread, and also tossed with pasta!
