Made some really nice garlic butter today. It is so easy to make, all you need is basically some real butter. It can be either salted butter or unsalted butter, both are fine. I prefer the unsalted butter since I can then add my own herbal salt that I feel give a better taste.
Start by taking 50-100g of butter and heat it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. This will make it more soft and easy to handle. You then add some chopped garlic on top and the different spices that you prefer. Here you see some thyme, herbal salt, chilli powder, dried chilli and a little pepper. Just add on all the things you like to make it according to your taste.
After you have added on all parts just stir it for a while until everything has been mixed together. You can either serve it directly like this or put it in the fridge for a couple of hours to get it more firm again.
This type of garlic butter is perfect on top of a nice piece of steak or other fried meat. However do not limit yourself to only using the garlic butter for that, you can use it to almost anything.
