Perfect on Steak: Lemon Parsley Sauce

Tangy lemon, earthy parsley and zesty garlic combine in this easy Lemon Parsley Sauce recipe. It’s great on steak, chicken, potatoes and more.

This photo shows a grilled steak on a white plate topped with green Lemon Parsley Sauce. There's also potatoes on the plate.

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 Lemon Parsley Sauce.

I want to describe how the tangy lemon is so well complimented with the mellow but earthy parsley and zesty garlic. Really, I do.

I want to wax poetic about the virtues of pairing this sauce recipe with a perfectly cooked steak.

But really, I just want you to get out the lemon and parsley and garlic and make this sauce. Then eat it over steak or potatoes … or both. Or try it over chicken. Or what about with a nice firm white fish?

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

Just try it.

For the steak, there’s no need to do anything too fancy. A steak seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled to however you like it is perfect. But you could also totally go a little fancier if you prefer.

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