"4.5 Stars: The garlic butter is divine. I marinated the steak in Dale's for about 30 minutes and my husband thought it was still very plain. I will marinate longer next time. It definitely needs more than salt and pepper."

"My husband made this a while back and I have to say it's delicious! Shortly after I discovered that I have to cut out dairy from my diet, so he tried it again with margarine in place of the butter and it was still quite tasty, though I preferred the butter."

"The chef who ever thought of putting butter, much less garlic-butter on a steak was a genius, IMHO!  I love garlic butter on a steak and have been doing this at home for a long time."
