I know there are many that love this but I am no fan. Some consider it a trade secret of putting butter on a steak for the last finishing of a cooked steak. I consider it worthless. But we went to a steak house today. I ordered a bone-in rib eye. I specifically said no butter on the steak. She looked at me weird and said she never heard of that but I said oh yeah...their cooks will know. Well I got my steak and it was buttered. I said I want a new steak and no butter. They brought me another one and it was good. I then received a visit from the kitchen boss and he said he would appreciate it if I did not tell anyone they butter their steaks. I said it's no secret. He said they are trying to keep it as if it was. I laughed and said good luck with that.
Was it strait up butter or a compound butter? is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
