Just a few Days ago, I posted the Question: What makes a good Steak for you? I also mentioned that I sometimes really like Green Pesto on my Meat.

So here we go again. I had a Steak, yet again. And I covered it in a mixture of Green Pesto and some lovely Kräuterbutter.

I had cooked it just the Way I like it, it really was almost Perfect. The only pre-cooking Seasoning I had used was some freshly ground Pepper, and it was awesome.

You really do not need very much when it comes to Steak.

After then cooking my Steak, I first slathered some Kräuterbutter onto it after letting the Meat rest. And then I covered it all in Green Pesto.

I really do like that Combination right now. It is fresh, just a little Cheesy and oh so good. Especially with the freshly cracked Pepper underneath.

  • Kräuterbutter? 👀 Is that like a Philadelphia cheese of sort? Or it's just kind of butter?

  • I've often thought pesto needed steak

  • That sounds super delicious! I need to try it sometime 😋

    "The Green Robin" made me laugh because I'm currently watching the last season of How I Met Your Mother and it reminded me of the Robin from there 😂

  • I bet that is a good combo! I would probably use it as a dip instead though.
