  • 1/2 cup salted butter (1 stick)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Ribeye Steaks:

  • 2 ribeye steaks , 1.5-in thick
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

To make Cowboy Butter:

  • In a medium bowl, stir together all ingredients until combined. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
  • Place on a sheet of plastic wrap and wrap up in a log. Chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

To make Ribeye Steaks:

  • Let steaks sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Pat dry with a paper towel and sprinkle both sides generously with salt and pepper.
  • To cook on the grill: Preheat grill to high heat. Place steak on grill and sear on both sides for about 3 minutes, or until charred. Turn heat down to low and cook for an additional 4-6 minutes until internal temperature reaches 145-155°F for medium doneness.
  • To cook on the stove: Preheat oven to 475°F. Preheat cast iron skillet over high heat. Place steak in pan and sear on both sides for about 3 minutes, or until browned. Put steak and pan in the oven for an additional 4-6 minutes until internal temperature reaches 145-155°F for medium doneness.
  • Remove steaks from heat and cover with foil. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
  • To serve, top steaks with a few tablespoons of cowboy butter.
NOTES:
  • If using unsalted butter, increase salt in cowboy butter to 1 teaspoon.
  • Use any leftover cowboy butter on meat, chicken, fish, and vegetables.
