Ingredients

    1 stick plus 1 T salted butter
    4 cloves garlic, finely minced or grated on zester
    1 cup red wine
    1 tsp minced fresh thyme
    1 tsp minced fresh parsley
    1 tsp minced fresh sage
    (or any other fresh herb you like or have on hand)

Directions

Place stick of butter in a bowl and set aside, at room temperature.

In a small nonstick skillet, heat 1 T butter over medium heat until bubbling. Once bubbling has subsided, add garlic and cook swirling pan constantly until garlic is fragrant but not browned, about 2 minutes. Add wine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until nearly all the wine is reduced, about 20 minutes. There should be about 1-2 tablespoons left in the pan, no more. Turn off heat and let cool completely.

Using a rubber spatula, carefully scrape all of reduced wine/garlic into room temp butter. Stir in herbs and a little black pepper. Taste for seasoning.

Dump out butter mixture onto a sheet of wax paper, folding paper over butter. Form into a log and chill for at least one hour, up to overnight.

When you heat your grill, pull this out and put it on a butter dish, allowing it to warm slightly before spreading it on your steaks.

This also works wonders on grilled chicken, fish, you name it.
