Not only is compound butter easy to make, it looks beautiful.  I roll the softened mixed butter in plastic wrap and refrigerate it.  Once it’s completely chilled it can be sliced making gorgeous rounds of butter.  Compound butter can elevate even the simplest of dishes and is perfect on steaks!

This Garlic Herb Compound Butter is loaded with fresh herbs and garlic.  I always include lots of parsley as a base and then add in a couple of tablespoons of other fresh herbs.  You can use any herb depending on what is growing in your garden or what herbs you use most. The butter in these photos has parsley, basil and rosemary which makes it the perfect compound butter for steaks or roasted potatoes.  I’ve used this butter for everything from garlic bread to corn on the cob and fresh vegetables.

  1. What is the purpose of using the lemon juice? 

  2. And — FYI — I was at HYVEE grocery store here in KC, MO, and they were selling 1Tbl rounds of this same compound butter for — GET THIS!! $1 EACH!!! Speaking of spending with pennies!!! That’s a WOW!!!

  3. Made this compound butter and served it on cowboy pork steaks from Sam’s —- speaking of huge thick steaks for $2.99 a pound!! It was wonderful!!! I did make a change you might be interested in. I have lots of fresh herbs, since we are in the nursery business. I take olive oil, and gently heat halved garlic cloves and fresh rosemary, and then strain it. It is fabulous for sauteing meat, or what ever. I took the left over garlic pieces and used them in the compound butter. Because they had been gently cooked, they added a sweet garlic flavor that was divine. Thanks for the great recipe!!!

  4. How long is this good for in the refrigerator. Do you suggest freezing ?

  5. I make my compound butter recipe, spoon into ice cube trays and freeze. Once frozen, you can put them into a zipper bag and use as needed. They can be cut in half for use in smaller portions. Candy molds of various shapes can be used in place of ice cube trays.

  6. How long will the Garlic Herb Compound Butter keep fresh for in the fridge?

    • It should last about a week. If you need more time than that you can slice it and freeze it and just defrost a couple of slices as needed.
