Perfect on Steak: Lemon Parsley Sauce

| May 14, 2009 | 5 Comments


I’ve been staring at this screen for way too long. Of course, I want to tell you how much I love simple but flavorful sauces like this. I want to describe how the tangy lemon is so well complimented with the mellow parsley and zesty garlic. Really, I do. I really want to you to know that you need to make this and eat it over steak or potatoes … or both (but then you should make a double batch for four people).

It’s kind of like chimichurri … without the spice.

Just try it.

1 cup parsley
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

    Last summer I put basil aioli on everything. I was looking for a new summer must-have, and this might be it. Thanks!
