Red Wine and Shallot Compound Butter

I love this recipe on steak, but I’m sure it would be good on so many things.


1 Stick Unsalted Butter

1 Shallot, minced

1/2 T Fresh Lemon Juice

100 ml. Red Wine (a shot glass is about this amount)

1/4 C Fresh Parsley

Black Pepper and Salt to taste


-Add wine, lemon juice and shallot to saucepan over medium heat.  Bring to boil.

-Stir on occasion, cook for about 7 minutes or until all of liquid cooks out. Allow to cool before next step.

-Place softened butter (can cut into cubes to soften quicker if needed), add in cooked shallot and all other ingredients.  Using hand mixer, blend until well incorporated.

-Place butter on piece of saran wrap, fold over to cover, roll until right roll in created, tie ends ( I use clothes pins) and place in fridge until hard again.

-Remove and slice as you wish.  Enjoy!
