Southwest Steak with Chipotle Butter

One of our most popular posts (Herb Butter Steakhouse Steak) has inspired many other recipes that we have tried. The Magical Moms often make healthy recipes, but they are not afraid to experiment with BUTTER or BACON!  I learned the finishing butter on a steak trick while attending a cooking class a few years ago.  I don't do it all the time but when I do I always enjoy it!


Ingredients:

  • 4 (6-8 oz each) Steaks
  • 1/3 Cup A1 Steak Sauce
  • 1 Chipotle in Adobo Sauce (just one pepper not the whole can)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Water
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
  • 2 tablespoons of butter (softened)
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
Serves 4

In a small food processor combine A1 , chipotle pepper, water, minced garlic, and lime juice and process until smooth.  Place steaks in a ziploc bag and pour 2/3 of the marinade over it.  Reserve 1/3 of marinade to brush on steaks while cooking.  Marinade steaks for about 30 minutes.  

Chipotle Butter
Place softened (not melted) butter along with 1 teaspoon of adobo sauce in small food processor and process until well combined.  Place butter in small bowl and place in fridge so it can harden again.
Grill steaks (I cooked them on my grill pan on the stove inside) until they are cooked to desired temp.  I cooked mine to medium.  Then top with a slice of the hard chipotle butter and let it melt into the meat.
