Mix all ingredients in a small bowl with a wooden spoon.

Lay out a piece of plastic wrap and scrape out butter into a log.

Roll in the plastic, seal the ends and refrigerate for one hour.

Remove and roll the plastic to as perfect a round cylinder as possible.

Refrigerate or freeze until needed.

When ready to use, remove from the wrap and cut into thick coins and place on the freshly cooked steak.
