Grilled Steak with Sofrito Butter

A Steakhouse Classic – With a GOYA® Twist

A hot steak fresh off the grill is a definite summer treat. But when you season it with GOYA® Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning, instead of salt and pepper, your favorite cut of meat becomes spectacular. Here, we top the savory steaks with a mixture of GOYA® Sofrito and butter for Latin take on a classic steakhouse topping.

Serves 4

Prep time: 10 min.

Total time: 20 min., plus chilling time


4 tbsp. (2 oz.) salted butter, softened

¼ cup GOYA® Sofrito

4 6 oz. filet mignons, strip steaks or other favorite steak fillets (about 1 inch thick)

GOYA® Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning with Pepper, to taste


1. In medium bowl, stir together butter and sofrito until combined. Place small sheet plastic wrap on work surface; top with butter mixture. Using plastic wrap as an aid, form butter mixture into 1½ ” diameter log; wrap tightly and chill until firm. (Note: Butter can keep in refrigerator 1 week or in freezer 1 month.)
2. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Season steaks generously with adobo. On greased grill grates, cook steaks, flipping once, until well browned on both sides and medium rare (about 6 minutes).
3. Transfer steaks to serving plates. Cut butter into 4 rounds. Top each steak with 1 round butter; let steak rest 5-10 minutes (butter will melt slightly). Serve with GOYA® Sweet Plantains, if desired.
Tip By La Cocina Goya

Free-Form Sofrito Butter

Shaping the Sofrito Butter into a log shape (Step 1) makes for a pretty presentation: the round discs of butter melt evenly and look muy elegante on top of the steaks. However, if you prefer a more casual look (and a quicker approach), simply cover the bowl of Sofrito Butter with plastic wrap and transfer to the refrigerator until chilled. Once the steaks are cooked, top each steak with 1 tablespoon of the butter mixture.
