  • 4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 8 ounces steak, your choice of cut (I used two 4 ounce filet mignons for this recipe)


  1. Heat grill to high.
  2. Mix together butter, cheese and pepper and set aside.
  3. Grill steaks to your favorite degree of doneness. We like ours medium rare, which is about 4 minutes per side for fillets – they should be 125 degrees on an instant read thermometer.
  4. Remove steak from grill and quickly spread with parmesan butter. Tent with foil and let rest for 5 minutes, then serve.
