The Ultimate Elk Bone Marrow Compound Butter Steak Topping

15 Min

Prep Time



If you followed last week's Timber2Table post on grilling elk bone marrow, then hopefully you were able to control yourself and save a bit of the marrow to make this compound butter.

This compound butter is the perfect addition to any type of steak.

Since you can't make this all of the time (unless you kill a LOT of elk or other large game), go ahead and splurge for a quality, high fat butter like Kerrygold Irish Butter.

Always use high quality butter in this recipe.


Marrow from 3-5 grilled elk marrow bones, cooled to room temperature

8 ounces Kerrygold Irish Butter, softened

Reserved grilled chopped garlic and shallot, cooled to room temperature

Cooking Instructions

Add the butter to a large bowl. Scrape in the grilled bone marrow.

Scrape the grilled bone marrow into the softened butter.

Gently mix all ingredients thoroughly.

Stir well to combine the ingredients.
