This is probably the best known of the compound butters, as it is the usual accompaniment to steak frites (grilled steak with french fries). Work 8 ounces (250 grams) butter with ¼ cup (60 milliliters) finely chopped parsley and 1 teaspoon (5 milliliters) lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Some recipes suggest adding mustard to the butter.
