We have made this several times on the grill and it turns out wonderful. We use Agave instead of honey because that is what we have and it works great. Do yourself a favor and try this easy and delicious recipe.

Fantastic flavor! I made this with the "Fresh Green Beans with Garlic" recipe and dinner was delicious! I will make the cilantro and blue cheese butter every time I grill steaks.

Cilantro and blue cheese are 2 of my favorite things, but I never dreamed of putting them together. This dinner was everything I dreamed it would be!
