Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup butter (at room temperature)
  • 14 cup blue cheese, crumbled (at room temperature)
  • 14 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce
  • 4 steaks (such as strip loin, at least 3/4 in. or 1.5 cm thick)


  1. Oil grill and heat barbecue to medium-high.
  2. Meanwhile in a medium bowl, stir butter with cheese, basil and Tabasco. If too lumpy, mash with a fork. Scrape onto a piece of plastic wrap.

If making ahead, butter mixture will keep well in the refrigerator up to a week.

  4. Slice butter mixture into rounds and serve 1 or 2 rounds on each steak.
