  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar

Meanwhile, mix together 2 cloves garlic, butter, thyme and rosemary in a bowl. Transfer mixture to a piece of plastic wrap. Seal the ends and refrigerate to harden.

When steaks are ready, remove from marinade and cook on a pre-heated grill over medium-high heat for 3-4 mins per side, depending on the doneness you prefer. Once cooked, transfer to a serving plate and top each with a pat of your compound butter. Allow the butter to melt before cutting and serving.
