Bourbon Garlic Compound Butter

1 stick softened unsalted Butter
2 tsp. Insane Steak Cracked Pepper Seasoning
2 Tbsp. Bourbon (come on, you already picked a choice cut of meat, don’t let it go to waste by using just any ‘ol bourbon)
1 Tbsp. Italian Parsley, minced


1.  Combine ingredients and mix
2.  Place butter mixture onto a sheet of plastic wrap and roll into a 6-inch log. Twist the ends of the
wrap to seal
3. Place in refrigerator until solid
4. When ready to serve the steaks, place a ½ inch butter on steak and allow to soften before


As for the grilling itself, resist the urge to move the steaks too soon after placing them on the grill. They will naturally release from the hot grate after a few minutes. To create crosshatch marks, rotate the steak one-fourth turn halfway through the grilling time on each side of the steak.

If flare-ups occur during cooking, move the steak to a cooler part of the grill temporarily. This will keep the meat from getting charred.
