I love steak! Nothing compliments a steak, like a great compound butter.  I have been experimenting with various herbs and spices.  I believe that I have determined the ultimate combination. It is slightly salty with a hint of acid and herb goodness.  It enhances a steak without taking away from that beefy goodness that we all know and love.
