Do you find yourself wishing you had better options for steak, but feel like the time it would take to make an herb butter for steak wouldn’t be worth it?  Plus, who wants to make a garlic herb butter for steak that only gets used once?  Seems like a lot of work, right?  Well, hold onto your hats because this herb butter for steak is super easy and you can make a large batch thanks to my newest trick!

It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, our grill is always in use.  When we grilled these steaks it was about 40 degrees out.  Even when we lived in NY we would grill through the winter.  There was always a path through the snow to our grill.  Since we grill so often, and when I say we, I mean my husband, it was important to have proper grilling tools.  I’ve been told that it can make all the difference in the ability to get the perfect grill marks on a NY Strip Steak because you need to be able to properly flip the steak.

I often roll my eyes at comments like these, but I end up caving.  I recently received this Pampered Chef grilling tool set and my husband is in love with it.  I have to tell you that if they help grill my steak the way that my NY Strip steak was grilled then they are winners in my book for sure!  The set includes grill tongs, spatula, basting brush, wooden grill scraper and a tool bag to keep them all organized and protected.  Bring on the meat!

We are huge steak fans, especially when it is a good cut of meat like these NY Strip steaks.   My husband likes to say that the only seasoning you need when you have a good cut of meat is a little salt and pepper.  Personally, I love herb butter for steak, but usually I only get it at restaurants.  It’s not something we usually make at our house.  Luckily, that’s changed because of the Pampered Chef Herb Freezing Tray Set.   

These Herb Freezing Trays literally make herb butter for steak an absolute cinch.  There are six wells in each tray and the flexible, yet sturdy trays make it easy to pop the herb butter for steak out.  Plus, there’s a plastic lid so that you can keep it in the refrigerator to use for the next meal that needs herb butter.  The Herb Freezing Tray is great for saving fresh herbs.  You chopped up the herbs, add them to the well and add a little water or olive oil and then freeze them.  When you’re ready to use the herbs, you just defrost them in cool water.
