New York Steaks with Chipotle-Cilantro Butter
  • Prep Time
  • 8Servings


  • 1 8 ounce stick butter, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon tequila (optional)
  • 8 boneless New York steaks (8-10 oz. each)
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


In a small bowl, using a fork, mix together the butter, chipotles, cilantro and tequila, if using. Spoon onto parchment. Using the parchment as an aid, form the butter into a 4-inch-long log; roll up tightly. Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours.

Preheat a grill to medium-high. Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Grill the steaks, flipping halfway through, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer the steaks to a platter. Cut the butter into 8 slices and serve on top of the steak.
