We were happy to partner with Kathy at A Mom’s Impression for this yummy Bone-In French Ribeye Steak with Mushroom and Thyme Compound Butter recipe.
This Bone-in French Ribeye Steak with Mushroom and Thyme Compound Butter is going to amaze you! A beautiful steak with a flavorful compound butter is the perfect recipe for Valentine’s Day dinner or for any special family meal.
My husband and I never really went all out for Valentine’s Day in the past. I prefer that he would randomly send me flowers when I least expected it, so we decided that Valentine’s Day wasn’t going to be filled with a lot of pressure.
What we ended up doing is cooking ourselves a big meal together and enjoying the day!
Most of the time we end up cooking a nice steak.
Family Valentine’s Day Meal Ideas
Our kids grew up eating meat and potatoes. It is a trait they inherited from their Idahoan mom. Steak is a great family Valentine’s Day meal because it gives the kids the protein they need and gives mom and dad the treat they crave. We will always pair our steak with some type of potato and a nice vegetable for a complete meal.
The key to a steak dinner you won’t forget is a high-quality steak.
Moink is a farmer-owned and operated community that ships humanely-raised, ethically-sourced meat directly to your door. Yes, I said you don’t have to drive to a farm or a grocery store to pick it up, they deliver right to you and the shipping is free! All you need to do is pick one of the four boxes that they offer. The boxes are fully customizable so you can swap out proteins to make the best choice for your family.
We chose the beef, pork and chicken box for our first box, but I swapped out some of the proteins to suit our family. We ended up with ground salmon, bacon, sirloin, ground beef, pork sausage, and two amazing bone-in French ribeye steaks.
Moink beef and lamb are grass-fed. The chicken, beef, lamb, and pork are pasture-raised. The fish is sustainably wild-caught in Alaska. My husband and I took the Whole 30 challenge in January and these proteins came right in time! Moink is perfect for those of us on a Paleo/Keto/Whole30 eating plan or lifestyle. Paleo bacon is hard to find and Moink has the best Paleo bacon!!!
Immediately when I saw the bone-in French ribeye steaks, I knew that they would be perfect for our family Valentine’s day steak dinner.
Aren’t they beautiful?
Mushroom and Thyme Compound Butter Recipe
While these are stunning by themselves, this is a special dinner so I decided that I needed to make a flavorful compound butter to put on top of the steak. I didn’t want to take too much away from the natural flavor of the steak. A compound butter is a great way to add a little flavor to enhance a steak. This time I made a mushroom and thyme compound butter using shitake mushrooms.
The key to a great compound butter is to incorporate everything into the butter, place your butter mixture onto a piece of parchment paper and roll tightly into a log. After it is in the fridge for a few hours it will be ready to slice up and serve on top of your steak.
For this meal, my husband seasoned our steaks with a homemade steak seasoning and grilled the steaks to 155 degrees. We let them rest a minute and then topped them with the compound butter.
- 1 tablespoon coarse salt
- 1 tablespoon fresh ground pepper
- 1/2 tablespoon granulated garlic
- 1/2 tablespoon granulated onion
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
