Grilled Steak with Jalapeño-Cilantro Butter
Prepare a grill for a hot fire with a cooler zone. Season steaks with salt and pepper and brush them lightly with oil. Grill steaks on the first side until marked, about 3 minutes. Turn steaks over and continue cooking until the meat registers 145 degrees F for medium-rare, 3-4 minutes more. If you prefer beef done medium, move the steaks to the cooler grill zone and cook for 5-6 minutes more. Top each steak with a slice of the flavored butter and serve at once.
