Grilled Steaks with Garlic Herb Cheesy Butter

My 20 year high school class reunion is this weekend.  I honestly cannot believe that I have been out of high school for 20 years!  Boy have the years flown by.  Some really good ones and some really bad ones.  But all in all, I cannot complain, it could have been SOOO much worse!!  I am from a pretty small town in Nebraska, so almost everyone I graduated with, I basically grew up with.  Some of the people I graduated with, I went to preschool with!!  It's just crazy to think that I saw them almost every day of my life for 13+ years, then nothing for 20.

Listen to me babble!  lol  I sound like an old lady!!  Sorry, I just start thinking about the years and I'm shocked at how fast they have gone by.  Reminds me to cherish all the moments I can.  Like this steak.  Definitely a moment in time to cherish - especially with the cheesy butter melting on top of it!!!  YUM!

Grilled Steaks with Garlic Herb Cheesy Butter
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
- Serves 2 -
Printable Recipe 
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 Tablespoons Boursin garlic herb cheese
2 New York Strip Steaks (or whatever cut you want)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ancho chile powder

In a small bowl, mix together the butter and cheese until well combined.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

In another small bowl, mix together the salt, pepper, paprika and ancho until well combined.  Sprinkle evenly over both sides of the steaks.  Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.  Remove and let sit at room temperature 30 minutes before you are ready to grill them.

Preheat grill to 400 degrees. Clean and oil grill grates.  Place the steaks directly over the fire and grill 5-10 minutes per side depending on the thickness and the doneness you desire.  Remove from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes.  Scoop a heaping tablespoon of the butter onto each steak and enjoy!

I still haven't tried an herb butter on steak combination yet. My friend, Kara, has mentioned it a few times and it always sounds delicious! Your plate looks awesome.

That looks amazing! And it's amazing that you've got a 20th class reunion coming up. It is strange how those people we spent time with every day for years all disperse at graduation, often taking such diverse paths. Will you be attending the reunion? I realize it's a long way to travel for one night. Will they publish a booklet that tells you 'Where they are now...' ?

Oh, the years go way too fast, don't they??? I haven't heard that any of my friends from school are grandparents yet, but I know it's coming ... and that will horrify me! Good thing we have good food, like this steak, to comfort us ... :)

Your steaks sound delicious! The years pass quickly, but 20 years is mere child's play. I could site numbers, but I don't want to best a good friend. I let you discover them on your own :-). I hope all has been well. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

We all hope your sojourn back to meet old friends is fun and satisfying, and that you find a nice strip steak awaiting you on your grill when you get back home.

Oh man. I love steak. That butter looks completely amazing! I would never have thought to pair the two!

The steak looks perfect and I've got to start using compound butter on steak. I wish I were going to my 20 yr reunion this year.

I've been wanting to grill a steak for weeks now. This has inspired me to get it on the weekend menu. Are you going to your reunion. I'm from a very small town in the middle of Kansas. Know exactly what you're talking about.

I haven't had boursin in quite a while, damn that sounds great!

And man, you are OLD Jenn. (I graduated in 85, just teasing)
