Grill The Steak:

  • Heat a charcoal or gas grill.
    After the steaks have marinated for 24 hours place them on the uncovered grill in the direct heat. Grill for 3-4 minutes per side.
    Move the steaks to the indirect heat, cover, and continue to grill until they reach your desired level of doneness. It is important that the steaks are cooked, but be careful not to overcook them, or they may become tough. The safe internal temperature for beef is 145 degrees. This can be checked using a grilling thermometer.

  • Remove the steaks after they have reached your desired level of done-ness and place a pat of the compound butter on each of them. Allow the steaks to rest for a few minutes as the butter melts.
    Cut the steaks into strips and serve.
