Lime Grilled Steak with Smokey Cilantro Butter

Because I love my Ancho Chili Steak recipe so much, I decided I needed to create a new steak that was similar. I feel very sorry for you if you don't like Cilantro. Life must be very hard for you folks! Cilantro makes food sooooo much better. This steak was really great and the extra butter tastes yummy rubbed on corn.

Lime Grilled Steak with Smokey Cilantro Butter
For steak and marinate:
Juice of 2 Limes
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
1/8 tsp ground pepper
2.5 Tbsp soy sauce
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 new york strip steak
Smokey Cilantro Butter:
3 Tbsp soften butter
1/8 tsp salt and pepper
1/8 tsp chipotle chili powder
1/8 tsp smoked paprika
1/8 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp liquid smoke
1 Tbsp chopped cilantro
Mix up all marinate ingredients.
Place steak and marinate in gallon bag and marinate overnight.
Stir together seasonings for the butter.
Chop cilantro.
Mix cilantro with butter, seasonings and liquid smoke.
Set aside until ready to use.
Remove steak from marinate. Cut off fat and cut in half. Sprinkle with kosher salt on both sides.
Sear in a cast iron skillet for 3-4 minutes on both sides.
Remove steaks from heat and set aside to rest for a few minutes before serving.
Top with cilantro butter and serve!
Use remaining butter to rub on your corn, YUM!
