Cowboy Butter

Category: Lunch & Dinner
Best for: Dips
Serves: 3-4

Cowboy butter is a versatile savoury butter compound used as a dip or topping for steak or roast, but it would be equally good with chicken or even prawns. It’s a little bit of everything: salty, tangy, smokey, full of fresh herbs and has a bit of a kick with a pinch of cayenne. I have been playing around with different versions, and this one is our favourite!

½ Cup

Donia Farms Sea Salted Butter, softened.

1 Tbsp

Dijon mustard

1 Tbsp

Lemon juice

½ tsp

Smoked Paprika

¼ tsp

Chilli Powder

¼ tsp

Red Chilli Flakes


Cayenne (Optional)


Cloves minced garlic

1 Tbsp

Chopped green onion

1 Tbsp

Fresh parsley

½ Tbsp

Fresh thyme

1 Tbsp

Cilantro (Optional)

¼ tsp


Salt, to taste

  1. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients until well combined. Store the butter in an airtight container in the fridge, or use parchment paper to shape the butter into a log and wrap it with cling wrap.

  2. To serve your Cowboy Butter,  slice it cold or at room temperature and use it on top of your meat. It melts deliciously on a warm steak! Or, you can do as we like and melt it, then use it as a dipping sauce!
