Garlic Compound Butter for Steaks

While steak is a dish that is delicious on its own, garlic compound butter alters the flavor profile to create an even richer taste. Collaborate with Butterball to concoct a garlic compound butter that suits your preferred cut of steak best. Add in herbs like thyme or parsley to add a fresh herb-y element to your steak dish, or consider other flavoring agents like lemon juice, black pepper, or even cognac.

Garlic Compound Butter for Seafood

Seafood like crab and lobster are the perfect vessels for bold, buttery goodness. A garlic compound butter, complete with herbs like basil, chives, or tarragon, is delicious when dolloped on top of a steaming seafood platter or when used as a softened dipping sauce.

Garlic Compound Butter for Bread

Warm bread is a tableside staple that can only be enhanced with everyone’s favorite spread: butter. Take it a step further with butter’s fancier counterpart—garlic compound butter. This sharp, savory topping turns a simple, predictable appetizer into a delightful dish.

Garlic Compound Butter for Vegetables

An easy way to spice up simple veggies is by popping a dollop of butter on top before roasting, baking, or grilling. Our garlic compound butter blends will get even the most loyal of carnivores asking for seconds of boldly-flavored vegetables. Add Butterball’s premade compound butter to everything from carrots to asparagus to mashed potatoes for an upscale taste that took your team no time to make.

Benefits of Premade Garlic Compound Butter

Whatever sector of the food industry you’re in, you’ll find that working with Butterball to create high-quality, premade compound butters is advantageous to your kitchen staff because of its:

  • Ease of use: Having premade butter on hand makes creating delicious dishes quick and efficient. It’s incredibly easy to place a dollop of finishing butter on a dish just as it’s ready for service, providing a layer of melty, buttery flavor—butter really does make everything taste better.
  • Reduction in prep time: Compound butter can be time-consuming to create. Not only do you need to purchase a variety of ingredients, but you also need to spend time concocting the perfect blend, mixing, chopping, rolling, chilling, and taste-testing. Busy kitchens don’t have time for this, which is where we come in. With premade butter, all you need to do is add it to your dish.
  • Consistent flavor profile: When creating compound butter from scratch on a regular basis, you run the risk of altering the ratio of ingredients in a way that negatively impacts the flavor profile of your dishes. Purchasing premade compound butter in bulk quantities ensures your food tastes the same with every preparation, allowing you to maintain the highest level of quality and precise customer service that your customers expect.
  • Less product waste: Ordering premade compound butter from Butterball eliminates ingredient waste. With our ready-made products, you’re getting an exact portion of perfectly balanced, buttery goodness. We offer tubs as well as  pre-portioned options, like dollops and medallions.
