I brought home a LOT of inspiration from Italy and it’s coming to the blog starting today! We’re kicking it off with this Grilled Rib Eye Steak with Parrano Herb Compound Butter. DREAMS! Get ready.
There are so many things that impressed me about Italy. One that stood out throughout the entire country was the quality of ingredients. They are all about simple recipes, incredible quality ingredients and wine…. lots of wine. And cheese. ALL THE CHEESE! It felt like home 🙂
Inspired by my time in Italy, I’ll be teaming up with Parrano for the rest of the year to bring you some incredible recipes using their cheese!! It’s not just any cheese though… Parrano is aged for five months, which makes it perfectly nutty like Parmigiano-Reggiano but with a firm and smooth texture like a young Gouda. I mean, sounds perfect right? It’s full of flavor and versatile enough to cut, grate and melt. I’ve been using it in mac and cheese – to die for. Adding it to pizza – naturally. Throwing it on cheese boards – duh. And topping my Chicken Parm with it on the regular. I can’t get enough. Literally, we bought Whole Foods out of stock a few weeks back. Not sorry about it! You guys will love it! Today it’s going into a Herb Compound Butter and then getting slathered on top of a big juicy Grilled Rib Eye Steak. Screams summer right? Let’s do it!
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- ¼ cup shredded Parrano cheese
- Salt and pepper
- 4 - 1½ inch-thick rib-eye steaks (about 1 pound each)
- Salt and pepper
- Mix together all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix together until smooth. Then cover and chill for at least 2 hours to let the Parrano cheese and herbs infused into the butter.
- Season both sides of the rib eyes with plenty of salt and pepper. Heat an indoor or outdoor grill to medium high heat. Grill steaks to desired doneness, about 6 minutes per side for medium-rare, 8 minutes per side for medium. Remove the steaks from the heat, and let rest for 5-10 minutes.
- Slice steak to serve, top with spoonful of chilled Parrano Herb Compound Butter, and serve.
