Garlic and Herb Compound Butter

I've made a compound butter for turkey breast before, but never for a steak. Last night I decided to give it a try and with the addition of this butter that was the best steak i've ever eaten! The butter melts on the sizzling hot steak and gives it really good flavor.


4 oz stick of butter softened in the microwave
2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
sprinkle of salt


1. In a small bowl combine all the ingredients until completely mixed.
2. Pour the soft butter into a sandwich ziploc bag and place it in the freezer for 10 minutes
3. Remove the butter from the freezer and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve
4. Slice a couple of pats over a big juicy steak, over roasted or steamed veggies, over cauli rice, or spaghetti squash. Delish!

This recipe yields 8 tbsp of compound butter. Each tablespoon has 0.3 Net carbs.


  1. Hi Adriana!
    Did you see that looooooooooong thread on LCF about compound butters? Seriously. It's so great! I wanna give this a try too. Perfect with steak or with anything. :) Looks great!

  2. Hey Dee,
    Yeah I saw it! I just recently subscribed to it and it's so long that I haven't even finished reading all of it!

    I've also got a recipe for a roasted red pepper saffron compound butter that would be great with grilled scallops, fish, or shrimp. I can't wait to make it!

  3. Now this one is what I've been looking for. Would be giving you credits on the way how you deliver this great insight. Such an interesting story. smoke spice
