I was going to make my grilled Spanish spaghetti for the fall-BQ but I ran out of time and decided steaks while not as cost efficient for 18 people would be a lot more time efficient.  So I bought some steaks and decided I would church them up with a fancy topping. I took a look at what we had in the fridge, thought about things I had made in the past that tasted good and threw together some avocado butter with a huge amount of garlic and cilantro added in.  This topping was so good I had to ration it in order to get some for myself.  Slam some slabs of meat on the grill and top them with heaven!

Ingredients
Steaks
4 (1lb 1 1/2 thick cut) new york strip steaks (at room temp)
olive oil
kosher salt (to taste)
fresh crack pepper (to taste)

Topping
1 ripe Haas avocado
1 stick sweet unsalted European butter
8 cloves garlic
1 tsp cumin
1/3 cup cilantro (chopped)
kosher salt (to taste)
fresh crack pepper (to taste)


Topping
Place garlic, avocado butter, salt, pepper and cumin into a small mixing bowl and mash with a potato masher (or fork) until smooth and even.  Add cilantro and fold in until even.  Sit to side until ready to use.


Steaks
Pre-heat grill to high heat.


Rub steaks with olive oil, then rub in salt and pepper.  Places steaks on lower grill and sear for 4 minutes (after 2 minutes give the steaks a quarter turn.)  Flip steaks and continue to cook for another 4 minutes (once again after 2 minutes turn steaks a quarter turn.)  move steaks to medium or top grill and continue to cook 1-2 minutes per side or until desired doneness is reached.

Remove from heat and cover for ten minutes.  Serve hot with your desired amount of garlic avocado butter topping!
