Sage and Garlic Finishing Butter

Finishing butter is a basic way to add tons of flavor to a dish. Many herbs and seasonings have fat soluble flavors and smells that butter helps extract for your tasting pleasure. You can easily customize your butter to fit the dish you are making, from steak, to seafood, to pasta. This one is a basic herb butter that goes great on steak.


1 stick of butter
1 t dried sage
1 t dried oregano
1 t dried thyme
1 clove of garlic


Soften the butter in the microwave, fold the herbs and garlic into it, then wrap the butter mixture in plastic wrap and stash in the freezer for an hour before using. This allows for good flavor extraction and makes it easier to portion the butter for the dish you are putting it on.

    Excited to start experimenting with seasoned butter and finishing butter--thanks largely to these posts!
