mangia mondays 15: grilled steak with balsamic-rosemary butter

hiya, friends!
welcome to

a super-mega-awesome blog hop i co-host each week with the stupendous
lisa from shine your light!

the hubs & i try to barbecue as much as possible during summer - 
{he's a superb griller... is that even a word?}
& i recently received the bobby flay cookbook:
there are so many mouth-watering recipes
& i started with this one:

grilled steak with balsamic-rosemary butter

perfectly grilled steak
4 {12 oz} boneless rib-eye or ny strip steaks or filet mignons
2 TBS olive oil
salt & freshly ground black pepper

1. 20 minutes before grilling, remove the steaks from the refrigerator & let sit, covered at room temperature.

2. heat your grill to high.

3. brush the steaks on both sides with oil & season liberally with salt & pepper. place the steaks on the grill & let cook until golden brown & slightly charred, 4-5 minutes. turn the steaks over & continue grilling for 5-6 minutes for medium-rare, 7-8 minutes for medium, or 9-10 minutes for medium-well.

4. remove the steaks to a cutting board or platter, tent loosely with foil, & let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

balsamic-rosemary butter
2 C balsamic vinegar
2 tsp whole black peppercorns
2 tsp honey
2 TBS chopped fresh rosemary leaves, plus sprigs for garnish
12 TBS {1 1/2 sticks} unsalted butter, slightly softened
1 tsp salt

1. combine the vinegar & peppercorns in a small saucepan over high heat & cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced to 1/4 C, 8-10 minutes. remove the peppercorns, whisk in the honey & rosemary, & let cool to room temperature.

2. combine the balsamic mixture with the butter & salt in a food processor & process until smooth. scrape into a bowl & refrigerate for 30 minutes to set slightly. the balsamic-rosemary butter can be made 1 day in advance & stored, covered, in the refrigerator. remove from the refrigerator 15 minutes before serving.

3. top each steak with a few TBS of the butter & garnish with rosemary sprigs, if desired.
