  • 1/2 cup room temperatureĀ butter, Make note of whether it's salted or unsalted because it will effect how you season this
  • 2 Tablespoon shallot, your choice of red onion, sweet onion, green onion; finely minced
  • 1-3 cloves garlic, finely minced; quantity used depends on potency (cheap supermarket or fresh homegrown?) and preferred garlicky ness.
  • 1 Tablespoon parsley, finely minced; you can switch this up for another green herb
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme, finely minced; or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1-2 Tablespoon red wine vinegar, start with smaller, as sometimes it doesn't want to all mix it. I don't mind having a bit not mixed perfectly in.
  • Freshly ground pepper and sea salt to taste


  • Mix together all ingredients in a bowl. Done!
  • Now top it on your grilled, pan fried or broiled steak and wow some people!


Alternatively, you could put herbs, onion, garlic, vinegar in food processor, pulse until smooth, then add butter and pulse until combined. I'd have to own a food processor to try that, but I'm sure it would work fabulously.
