YIELD: 4 serving         PREP TIME: 5 min         GRILL TIME: 10 min



  • ½ stick butter, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon Tuscan Herb Seasoning
  • 4 steaks (1 ½ inch thick, 6-8 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt to taste
  • ground black peppercorns to taste


Tuscan Herb Compound Butter:

Mix 1 tablespoon of Tuscan Herb Seasoning (ground, or not) with ½ stick of room temperature butter. Wrap the butter in plastic wrap or parchment paper, roll into the shape of a log, and chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.

Grilled Steaks:

Lightly oil the grates on your grill. Heat grill to high temperature.  

While grill is coming to temperature, pat the steaks dry with paper towels and then brush all surfaces lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle sea salt and grind pepper evenly over all surfaces of the meat, pressing into the meat to help it adhere.

When the grill is hot, add the steaks and grill on all sides (top, bottom, and sides) for 2 minutes each side. Repeat heating all sides until the meat is seared with grill marks: about 8 – 10 minutes. Heat to 120°F for rare meat and to 125°F for medium-rare.

Remove steaks from the grill and place 1 tablespoon of butter on top of each serving. Cover the grilled steaks tightly with aluminum foil and let the meat rest for 5-10 minutes. Serve with additional freshly ground Tuscan Herb Seasoning, sea salt and ground pepper on the side so your guests can season their servings to taste.
