This isn’t a purist café de Paris butter – use whatever you have in your fridge and pantry: fresh or dried herbs, something salty, mustard and lemon. Garlic is non-negotiable. Serve with rocket, steamed green beans or Tenderstem broccoli.


  • 8 Woolworths Apache potatoes
  • 1 T olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • 400 g Woolworths Angus chuck eye steak, at room temperature

  • 4 anchovies
  • 4 T parsley, chopped
  • 1 t dried oregano

  • 1 t lemon zest
  • 2 T lemon juice
  • 300 g butter, at room temperature
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
