Shallot-Herb Butter for Steak

Add rich flavor to any steak dinner with this easy-to-make compound butter – a blend of herbs, spices, or other ingredients with butter.



  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 medium shallot, finely minced or grated
  • 1 tablespoon fresh herbs, chopped (We love thyme and rosemary, or chives!) chopped fresh thyme or rosemary
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon sea salt, to taste
  • Additional pat of butter to saute the shallots


  • Leave the butter out on the counter until it softens.
  • Mince the shallot. Heat the additional pat of butter in a small pan on medium. Saute shallots until translucent, about 3 minutes.
  • Mash the stick of butter with the cooked shallots, sea salt, and your choice of herbs.
  • Roll the butter into a log shape and wrap it in plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.
  • Slice and serve on top of the steak. Try it on top of your tenderloin.
