How do you like your steak?  For me, it’s medium rare with a good sear, which leaves the meat nicely warmed yet plenty pink and juicy.  Top it with Smoky Paprika Caper Compound Butter and I’m in carnivore heaven.

Adorning steak with compound butter is certainly not a new concept but the flavour combination possibilities are virtually endless, making it a delicious new experience every time you change it up.  Smoky Paprika Caper Compound Butter is smoky, briny and salty, cutting the richness of the steak. The butter is the flavour vessel, slowly releasing its aromatic bounty as the butter melts.  It will have you mopping around your plate to sop up every drop.

Compound butters are not only an elevated way to serve your steak, but ridiculously easy, customizable and made in advance so serving is a breeze.  Try a compound butter bar, where guests can pick their own flavour combination  to put on their steak, or vegetables or baked potatoes or…..you get the idea!
