The start of school signals the end of summer at our house. I know many of you have children already back in school, but with two college students, this is my week. I went to a football scrimmage last week to kick off this “fallish” time of year. I know the calendar will not agree with me for weeks, but I am ready for everything that comes with the start of another school year. Cooler weather, sweatshirts, football, and no more mowing!!
As I start a new schedule, I am excited about something new. I am going to share my email address with you for two reasons. One, so that you can submit questions. Any questions you have about my recipes or cooking in general. I will do my best to help you out in this department. Two, Occasionally, I want to feature a READER RECIPE. Submit your favorite recipes and tell me a little bit about you, your life, your kids, etc. Then read Not Just Sunday Dinner and watch for the occasional READER RECIPE. I look forward to getting to know you and trying your excellent recipes! Let’s get started, email me today at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week’s recipe is an incredible steak butter! I first tried steak butter in Kansas City several years ago and have been hooked since. Forget the steak sauce, this is all you’ll need. The fresh herbs, garlic, and lemon juice make any steak mouth-watering! This recipe makes enough to share with a friend or freeze. Don’t limit yourself to only topping steaks, though, try it on chicken and pork too!
- 2 tbsp. minced garlic
- 2 tbsp. plus 1 lb. unsalted butter
- 1 tbsp. minced fresh thyme
- 1 tbsp. minced fresh rosemary
- 1 tbsp. salt
- 1 tbsp. black pepper
- 1 lemon, juiced
- Toast garlic in 2 tbsp. butter in a small skillet. Heat just until turning brown. Be very careful not to burn it. Set aside.
- Place 1 lb. butter in a medium bowl. Add minced thyme, minced rosemary, salt, black pepper and lemon juice. Mix well.
- Add melted butter and garlic to butter/herb mixture, blend.
- Divide butter in half. Wrap each half in plastic wrap and form 2 logs. Refrigerate to firm.
- After grilling your steak place ¼-inch thick disks on each steak. Serve.
