Let the meat come to room temperature while you prepare the compound butter. Preheat your grill to between 350-400˚ F (medium-high).

Season both sides of each steak with salt and pepper. Grill outside covered for about 10 minutes or so each side or until the meat reaches about 5˚ under desired doneness.

Step 3

When the meat is done remove from the grill and rub some of the compound butter onto the steaks. Cover with aluminum foil and let stand for 10 minutes to rest. Uncover the meat, slice across the grain and serve with additional compound butter.
