Grilled T-bone Steak with Lemon Dill Butter & Asparagus

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Makes: 4


  1. 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  2. 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh dill
  3. 2 tsp lemon zest
  4. 2 T-bone steaks (up to 18 oz/550 g each)
  5. 1 tsp salt
  6. 1 tsp pepper
  7. 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed


  1. To make Lemon Dill Butter, mix together butter, dill and lemon zest. Scrape mixture onto a large piece of plastic wrap, shaping into log shape, about 4-in.(10 cm) long. Roll tightly in the plastic wrap, twisting ends to seal. Refrigerate for 30 min. until firm or pop in freezer 5 to 10 min, then slice into 1/4-in. (5 mm) "pats".
  2. Pat steaks dry with paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Grill on preheated barbecue over medium-high heat, 5 to 6 min. per side for medium-rare. Remove steaks from grill, let rest 10 min.
  3. Meanwhile, grill asparagus 3 to 4 min., turning frequently, until tender and grill-marked. Serve with steak topped with pat of Lemon Dill Butter.

Refrigerate remaining butter for up to 4 days. Use extra lemon dill butter on sandwiches, steamed vegetables or fish.
