    4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, 2 cloves minced garlic, 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, ½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper
  • Place the steak butter on the serving platter. Before you take your steaks off the grill, place one spoonful of butter directly on your serving platter underneath where each steak will be placed. Set aside the remaining butter for the top of the grilled steaks and add them to top of the steaks while they are resting.
  • Refrigerate for one week. Any remaining resting steak butter can be stored in the fridge for up to a week
