    Last night on some NY Strips I half-melted 1/3rd stick of butter and added 1/2 tablespoon of granulated garlic, 2 tsp of onion powder, and 1/2 tablespoon of basil.

    Basted the strips as they were being seared - it was great.    That was the first attempt at making a steak butter and we were big fans.

    Interested to see what others are doing.

    I usually take some roasted garlic cloves, some salt pepper, granulated garlic, parsley and chives, 1 stick of butter melted in a skillet mix in seasonings then i cool it in the fridge. once solid i make a tube in some cling wrap and its like a stick of butter that can be sliced. heating the butter helps get the flavor from the herbs spread into the butter in my opinion.

    @U_tarded can you keep the new stick of butter for awhile in the fridge?  Or does it only have a one night use?

    Thyme, Rosemary, Sage, Roasted Garlic, Coarse Ground Himalayan Salt & Coarse Ground Tricolor Peppercorn.  Mix with 3-4 sticks of unsalted sweet cream butter...preferably Amish butter or Kerrygold.  With clear cling wrap make a butter roll and placed into the refrigerator to stiffen up.  I will vacuum save these quite often after it's been refrigerated and place into the freezer for an extended period with no issue.

    I keep it in the fridge a few weeks no issues.  But we are also the kind of people that keep a stick on the counter for a week or so for toast and don’t think twice about it.

    I keep butter on the counter in a butter bell for weeks at a time (until I use it up). Sometimes, I even remember to change the water. =)

    I'm just talking about butter though, no garlic or herbs and such.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    I've bought those HEB butters before, but have not seen the Kerrygold flavored butter. I want some!

    I work in Clear Lake BTW. There are a bunch of us egghead miscreants in the Houston area.

    Randall's on CLC Blvd usually has the Kerrygold.  I've been in Clear Lake City for over 50 years now.  Changed a lot.

    Wife came out when I was heating the ingredients and says something smells good out here! I think it’s going to be good!

    I usually go with some combo of what I have in the garden, typically thyme/lemon thyme, rosemary, basil, oregano.  Flat leaf parsley adds a great herby freshness without overpowering.  Salt and pepper.  Same thing if I’m doing a board sauce with olive oil.  Chop the rosemary really really well, nobody wants to bite into a chunk of rosemary.  Chives work well also.

    Steaks are on 285 dome for reverse sear action

    @Legume I think next time I’ll use the food processer I might of not got the rosemary fine enough, but live and learn right?

    I do a half assed version of this and it's great. Going to follow this next time. Just note it only keeps in the fridge for a few days. Needs to be frozen. Just used an older refrigerated roll tonight and it was nasty.
