Best Types of Butter Steak?
- Top Sirloin Petite Steak is a great low budget piece of meat and awesome for using the garlic butter to help add an extra layer of flavor.
- Top Sirloin Filet is my husband’s choice of steak because it’s not as expensive as a filet but cooks up wonderful and has awesome flavor and won’t break your bank.
- Ribeye steak is one of the most delicious steaks because it is rich in marbling. It is my favorite even though it has much fatter than a filet and it might require some trimming before cooking.
- T-bone steaks and Porterhouse steaks are one of the top favorites but, these two are very similar in the cut of meat. It is a tenderloin steak and strips of steak with a bone. The flavors are great and is the world’s best.

How to Store Butter Steaks
Let your leftover beef cool. Now grab some aluminum foil to wrap it up or store in an airtight container. The butter steak will stay in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
Warm this either on the stove, griddle, or in the microwave. Place the griddle grilled meat onto the foil and put in a low oven.
Once warm, place the sliced steak on a plate and serve with a side dish. Or you can slice the cold steak and eat on a salad or make into a sandwich.
