Rib Eye Steaks with Seasoned Butter Recipe Is Downright Delicious — Preps in Just 20 Minutes

Butter with garlic, lemon and mustard infuses the beef with rich flavor

What could be better on a Friday night (or any night!) than some smoky steaks hot off the grill? How about topping them with a delicious compound butter? That’s just what we did in our Rib Eye Steak with Seasoned Butter Recipe, and it does not disappoint. Plus, it’s easy to do. Start by making the seasoned butter, which is essentially softened butter flavored with spicy brown mustard, garlic, lemon juice and lemon zest. Dolloped over the grilled meat, the butter adds tons of rich flavor!

And to ensure the steaks grill up tender, season them at least two hours before cooking. Then take them out of the fridge and let them sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before cooking — this helps you achieve an even doneness throughout the meat when grilling it.

  • 1/4 cup butter, at room temp.
  • 2 tsp. spicy brown mustard
