  • Summary

    Recipe video above. Café de Paris is a butter for steak flavoured with a mix of herbs, spices and savoury condiments. Despite the name, it originates from Switzerland, popularised by a restaurant called "Café de Paris". Now a staple steak sauce around the world (including in Paris!), slices of this compound butter are placed on hot steaks so they melt to form a butter sauce. It's so simple, yet so incredibly good!Makes enough for 4 to 6 steaks, depending on how much butter you want on your steaks. Keeps for 2 months in the fridge, also excellent over seafood, poultry and hot steamed veg!
