Introduction

My dad was an old fashion type chef and if there was one thing he loved was Maitre D' butter. It's an easy way to "pump up the volume" on a really good steak. This is somewhat of a departure from the traditional butter, but it rocks, nonetheless. My dad was an old fashion type chef and if there was one thing he loved was Maitre D' butter.

Ingredients

    lb Crab meat-good quality, drained and chopped
    3 small shallots-chopped fine
    4 cloves garlic-crushed
    2 sticks unsalted butter-room temperature
    3 tsp lemon juice
    1 Tsp-L & P Worcestershire sauce
    3 TBL chopped parsley
    2 TBL Cognac
    black pepper
    salt
    4 Rib-eye Steaks-good quality

Directions

In a large bowl place crabmeat, shallots, garlic, butter, lemon juice, L&P, parsley, cognac, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Place mixture into parchment paper, roll into tube, and allow to harden in refrigerator. At least 1 hour.

Remove steaks from refrigerator and allow to warm before grilling. This ensures the meat cooks more evenly and wont get overly done on the outside and remain too red on the inside.

Cut maitre d butter into coin slices, inch thick. As soon as steaks are cooked, place steaks on serving plate and top with butter slices. Depending on size of the steaks, you may want to place 2 slices on each steak. Serves 4.

P.S. I didn't do a nutritional calculation on this dish. You don't need to know. This is definitely a special occasion meal.
