Simple and to the point, there’s nothing liked grilled steak.  Last night’s fare – beautiful, Ribeye steaks with a little something extra….Blue Cheese Butter.

 The only other things that were needed – a green salad and crunchy garlic bread.  In many cookbook, food magazines or restaurants, you may see the term, “compound butter,” but don’t be scared!  This term simply means – butter with other ingredients, chilled and then added to meats or other dishes at the end of the cooking process to enhance flavor.  Let’s be honest about this…when you add a compound butter to something, FLAVOR rules!  So, get creative, make your own, you’ll love the outcome!
