Our Fullblood Wagyu Strip Steaks need little to make them outstanding.  We generally just season with a little salt and pepper and are on our way. But our favorite carnivore and blogger has inspired us to get a little more creative in the kitchen. Jess Pryles created these six Flavored Compound Butter recipes specifically to compliment our Fullblood Wagyu steaks.

You want to make the butters several hours to a day before using with steaks to make sure the butter is solid. These butters will keep for at least a week in the refrigerator if you want to make well in advance.

For Steaks

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat grill to medium high
  2. Season steaks lightly with salt and pepper (remember, you'll be adding quite a bit of flavor to them with the butter, so stay light)
  3. Sear each side for 1 minute on hottest part of the grill before moving to lower heat. Cook for 5-6 minutes on each side
  4. Remove and let rest for 5 minutes. 
  5. Add butter after the steak has finished resting and voila! 

For Butter

Directions

  1. Place a stick of salted butter in a bowl and let come to room temperature until it's extremely soft
  2. Add your ingredients for flavor (below) and mix until evenly distributed
  3. Scrape butter into a large piece of plastic wrap and roll, twisting ends to re-form into a tube
  4. Place in refrigerator to re-solidify (several hours to overnight)
