Serves: 4


  • 2 sticks salted butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 1/2 pounds flank steak
  • 2 tablespoons Montreal seasoning
  • Canola oil


  • In bowl, combine butter, parsley, cilantro and lime juice with a spatula. Blend well to distribute ingredients.
  • Spoon compound butter onto wax paper; roll paper around butter to form a rough cylinder. Twist ends to secure butter (about 6”x1¼” diameter).
  • Refrigerate butter until chilled, at least 2 hours. Slice into 8-10 slices.
  • Lightly brush grill with canola oil and preheat to high. When grill is hot, grill flank steak covered 10-14 minutes turning once (or until internal temperature reaches 160°F). Season with Montreal seasoning. Place four slices compound butter on top of steak once turned.
  • Cover meat and let set 3-5 minutes. Slice meat against the grain. Serve with remaining compound butter slices on top.
  • Refrigerate leftovers.
