Ribeye Steaks with Cajun Butter

I'm a big believer in the fact that quality beef doesn't need much more than salt, pepper, and a bit of fire to make a brilliantly tasty steak.  But I'm also a believer in the truth that sometimes you have to shake things up a bit.

These Ribeye Steaks with Cajun Butter fall into the latter category.



I had gone to Food City to buy some chicken, but I saw this pack of pretty Certified Angus Beef® Brand ribeye steaks sitting in the meat case, just taunting me.  I had to buy them, it was a matter a principle. 


I felt like being a little wild with them, so I planned to hit them with some Cajun seasoning and finish them with a Cajun compound butter.




Cajun Butter for Steaks

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon finely diced green onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions

  1. Mix ingredients together with a fork or masher.
  2. Form into a log or scoop into 1" balls.
  3. Place on steaks immediately upon removing from heat.

 I patted the steaks dry with a paper towel.  Then I lightly oiled them with some canola oil and seasoned them with Slap Ya Mama Cajun seasoning.

The GrillGrates wick heat and cook faster, so these only took about 3 minutes a side.  

As soon as the steaks come off of the grill, I immediately crown them with a scoop or two of the Cajun butter.

I fire roasted some potatoes on my Grilla Grills pellet cooker.  Then I stuffed them with shredded cheese, butter, sour cream, chives, and some of our homemade bacon.

Man, oh man, were these steaks great.  They were boldly seasoned, had a delicious crust, and the butter just amplifies the flavor.

    1. Those came from a small pottery place here in Knoxville. They do/did great work but I don't want to share their info here as they took money from an out of town friend of ours and then never delivered the product. Hate that because they were a favorite vendor of ours until then.

  2. Thanks, Chris! Appreciate your words of caution and all the other recommendations you have provided. If you were willing to share the company name instead via email, I would be interested in taking the gamble that I pay and nothing is delivered. However, I also understand if you opt not to send any additional business their way.
