4 servings


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, plus more for serving

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided

  • ¾ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • 1 pound flank steak, trimmed

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 4 ears corn, husked

  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

  2. Combine butter, basil, chives, parsley, lemon juice, thyme and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a food processor. Pulse until well combined, scraping down the sides as necessary.

  3. Brush steak with oil and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Grill the steak, flipping occasionally, until slightly charred and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 125 degrees F for medium-rare, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a clean cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Spread 1 tablespoon of the herb butter on the steak.

  4. Meanwhile, grill corn, turning occasionally, until slightly charred and tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to the cutting board. Spread the remaining herb butter on the corn.

  5. Thinly slice the steak against the grain and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Serve the steak and corn sprinkled with feta and more parsley, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
