My romantic Valentine Dinner- Grilled Ribeye Steaks with Oozing Maitre d' Butter

I made my Valentine's Dinner on Sunday since I was off work and had lots of time! It turned out quite yummo!! I love cooking and enjoy making a nice dinner over going out. I made stuffed mushrooms, look on my blog under appetizers for the recipe, Grilled Rib-eye steaks (which I will post here, garlic mashed potatoes (looked under vegetable recipes, or side dishes), and steamed asparagus. Yumm!!
Here I will post my Grilled Ribeye Steaks with Oozing Maitre d' Butter! I got this off of the food network show Alex's Day off. I tweaked it a bit for our tastes and with what I had on hand. Turned out Delisioso!

Grilled Ribeye Steaks with Oozing Maitre d' Butter
1 cube butter
4 green onions, minced
1 heaping teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, plus a "few grates" lemon zest
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoons dried parsley
3 ribeye steaks, brought to room temperature, this makes the steak more tender
Grill Mates Montreal Steak seasoning

Make the butter: In a medium saute pan, heat  1 tablespoon of the butter over medium heat, then add the green onion. Season with salt, to taste, and cook until they are translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer the green onion/ butter mixture to a medium bowl. Add the black pepper, mustard, lemon juice, lemon zest and Worcestershire sauce. Whisk to blend so all of the flavors start to meld together. Use a fork to blend in the other 7 tablespoons of butter. Season with salt as needed, to taste, and stir in the parsley.
Roll the butter into a log shape (like cookie dough) in plastic wrap or parchment pepper and refrigerate until ready to use. When ready to use, unwrap and slice into 1/4 inch slices.

Cook the steak: Heat your outdoor grill to medium/high heat. Sprinkle both sides of steaks with Montreal Steak Seasoning. Place on grill, and cook on one side about 4 minutes, and then flip, and cook 4 more minutes. This makes the steak about medium/ medium well done. They are slightly pink in the middle. Adjust cooking time to your liking.
Let rest about 4 to 5 minutes before serving.
When ready to eat, place 1 slice of the Maitre D'Butter on top of the steak. The heat from the steak should melt the butter. If not, place under the broiler for a few seconds. Spread over the steak so you get butter in each steak bite!
