My boyfriend recently got a steak with a cilantro sauce when we went out for dinner. It was amazing! We had never had a sauce like that and it really complemented the steak. As usual, when we find something we love at a restaurant, we attempt to make it at home.
Of course, you could “cheat” and use dried cilantro, lemon juice from a bottle and garlic from a jar. But look how bright and delicious it looks when made with fresh ingredients!
Here’s the recipe:
1 medium garlic clove
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1. Mince the garlic and mix with the salt, pressing it into a paste.
2. Combine garlic, salt, cilantro and lemon juice in a food processor and blend until smooth.
3. Serve on top of your favorite steak.
