My cheating way is to mix soft butter with garlic powder. If I have time to plan ahead, I roast garlic in EVOO for two hours at 200*F. Then I mush it in with the butter.

I mince 1 clove of fresh garlic with a couple of tablespoons of butter.

Done.

Delicious.

Since it is a monster of a steak! I would use Butter Buds and garlic juice. You can also make this into a lite roux with some meat juices.

Once it cools down enough to touch, you can just squeeze the garlic out of the peel. GOOD LUCK!

I slice off the very tops of 3 garlic bulbs, enclose tightly in foil that I've added a little bit of water to (for steam); place in a preheated 425 degree oven for 45 minutes. Can sprinkle with olive oil and salt and pepper, before or after--great roasted garlic.

Let it cool--then squeeze in out into softened butter with a little additional salt and whip until smooth.

Send a message via AIM to college_cook
Take your roasted garlic cloves and your butter and mash them down into your cutting board with the flat face of a chef's knife or use a spatula. When they are well mashed, start folding them together and mash. Pop your steak under the broiler for 30 seconds and it will melt the butter nicely all over the steak.
