Smoked Steak Butter:

  • 2 cups Clarified Butter melted
  • 1/2 cup Garlic Confit
  • 2 tbsp Chopped Parsley
  • 2 tsp Chopped Chives
  • 2 tsp Dried Rosemary
  • 2 tsp Dried Thyme
  • 1 tsp of Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • Smoking Charcoal

Confit Garlic:

  • 12-15 Garlic Cloves
  • Oil enough to cover the garlic


  • Add a small skillet with your garlic cloves and enough oil to cover the cloves. Add to a medium heat fire and let gently simmer for at least 30-45 minutes until softened and dark amber brown. Pull off and cool, then smash up for the butter.
  • Add all the ingredients for the butter to the mason jar along with a smoldering coal from the fire (ideally white hot). Cover quickly to encapsulate the smoke, then set to the side to marinate for 20-30 minutes.
