Dad’s Grilled Steak with Garlic Herb Butter

Treat dad to a perfectly grilled steak this Father’s Day. Fire up the grill, gather your ingredients, and try to get to the grill before he insists on cooking it himself. 😉


  • 4 boneless ribeye or New York strip steaks (2.5 cm thick)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, finely chopped
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for grilling


Preparing the Garlic Herb Butter:

  • In a small bowl, combine the softened butter, minced garlic, chopped parsley, rosemary, and thyme.
  • Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  • Shape the mixture into a log shape using plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow it to firm up.

Preparing the Steaks:

  • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  • Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel and season generously with salt and black pepper on both sides.
  • Drizzle a little olive oil on each steak and rub it gently to coat.

Grilling the Steaks:

  • Place the steaks on the preheated grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or adjust the cooking time according to your desired doneness.
  • Avoid pressing down on the steaks to retain their juices.
  • Once cooked to your preferred level, remove the steaks from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute and ensures a tender, flavorful result.


  • Just before serving, take the garlic herb butter log from the refrigerator and slice it into thin rounds.
  • Place a slice of butter on top of each grilled steak, allowing it to melt and enhance the flavors.
  • Serve the steaks alongside your dad’s favorite sides, such as roasted potatoes, grilled vegetables, or a fresh salad.
