These flavors make for an excellent tasting sequence. At first bite, you are greeted with the acidic lemon, which fades into the beefiness of the meat and you finish with a lingering thyme flavor. I don’t normally pair thyme with beef unless it’s in a stew, so hats off to slulibby for making that connection. Trying to incorporate lemon juice into even soft, whole butter is no easy feat, so I made a melted concoction to spoon over slices of steak, which worked well. - cheese1227
