Ingredient Notes

An overhead view of the ingredients needed to make Cayt's Cowboy Butter.
  • Salted Butter: use the good stuff and make sure it’s softened. Don’t sub for margarine. This is a butter recipe, baby. Embrace it!
  • Garlic: you could use dried garlic, but freshly minced is the best.
  • Stone Ground Mustard: has more bite and better texture than Dijon or yellow mustard.
  • Worcestershire: flavor baby. Flavor.
  • Paprika: smoked paprika brings a whole new level of depth, really giving it that cowboy kick.
  • Red Pepper Flakes: If you can’t handle the heat, stay in the kitchen anyway and just leave it out.
