Blue Cheese Butter

This creamy blue cheese butter is the perfect pairing for prime rib roast, steaks, and chops. Unlike most compound butter, this one doesn’t need refrigerating before use. Our butter recipe remains soft and you make it right before serving. If you’re looking for a simple but flavorful prime rib butter, this is the one!

Ingredients for blue cheese butter:

  • Unsalted butter: Room temperature butter works best for this recipe. Use it should be soft but not melted or runny.
  • Blue cheese crumbles: I find purchasing crumbles is the easiest route. However, if you happen to have a block of blue cheese, you can certainly crumble it yourself and use it in this blue cheese butter.
  • Fresh thyme leaves: Substitute with your favorite herb. I recommend parsley, chives, oregano, basil, chervil, or tarragon. 
  • Granulated garlic: If you’d prefer to use fresh, then use one clove of fresh garlic, minced. You can also sub out the granulated garlic for garlic powder. 
  • Salt and black pepper

How to make it: 

This blue cheese butter recipe is incredibly easy to make, and can be put together minutes before serving your prime rib, steaks, or chops. 

  • Combine softened butter with 1/4 teaspoon of salt, black pepper, granulated garlic, crumbled blue cheese, and thyme leaves. Taste for salt content and add the other 1/4 teaspoon if needed.

Using and storing a compound butter:

  • To use, spoon on your desired amount of compound butter onto sliced rib roast, cooked steaks, or chops. Try this compound butter on baked potatoes, grilled or steamed vegetables, or even fries. It’s absolutely delicious!
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week after preparation.
