Compound Butter

The use of compound butter will "amp up" your flavor profile for steaks, seafood, vegetables etc.  These butters add a savory element to the taste of almost any meats.  This process is so simple and once you taste it you will never cook without it. Place a slice on or two on a steak, lobster tail or just about anything you put on the grill and enjoy!
