Compound Butter

A compound butter is a favored butter that can work well as a rich finishing sauce to melt on red meat.
Begin by softening butter and combining it with herbs, spices, lemon juice, lemon zest and desired spice. Use the back of a fork to mash the ingredients and distribute them evenly. At this point the butter is ready to use. Or you can wrap it in plastic wrap and shape into a cylinder, refrigerate it and slice off as much as you need.
