Tender, seasoned steaks are even more flavorful finished with a melty chipotle-garlic butter that adds a hint of smoke.
- 1 lime
- 2 tbsp butter, softened
- 2 tsp minced canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
- 2 tsp minced fresh cilantro
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- 4 (1" thick) bone-in beef strip steaks, about 1 lb. each
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp dry Montreal steak seasoning
Heat grill to medium-high. Grate 1/2 tsp. zest and squeeze 1 tsp. juice from lime into bowl; stir in butter, chipotle peppers, cilantro, garlic, and smoked paprika until blended. Reserve.
Coat steaks with oil, then sprinkle with steak seasoning. Grill, flipping once, until medium-rare, 4–5 min. per side. Transfer to serving platter; brush hot steaks with butter. Let rest 3–5 min. before serving.
