Fresh Herb Butter

My favorite topping for steak is an herb butter. This butter is fresh and has the bright taste of chives and rosemary. It highlights the taste of the steak and does not dominate it or overtake it like some steak sauces or bbq sauces tend to. Simple to make, this butter has become my go-to herb butter for steak, roast beef and it is even great on lamb and pork!

I typically use chives and rosemary, but some other herbs that also are great to add to this butter are tarragon, thyme and oregano. Make sure you use fresh herbs as dried herbs do not work well in an herb butter.
