Beurre Maître d’Hôtel — more simply called herb butter — is a compound butter often used to finish off a steak. I made both the butter and the steak last Sunday so let’s explore the butter portion first.
Step 1: Herbs
Assemble your herbs. I used Parsley, Chive, Thyme, Basil, and Dill, but you can change those up as you like.
Finely chop all the herbs.
Step 2: Mash
Take the slightly soft butter and mash the herbs into it. I used a potato masher, you can use a fork, spoon, or similar instrument to do the mixing.
Step 3: Roll
After the butter is well mixed, lay out a length of waxed paper and place a dollop of the butter/herb right in the center.
Treat the waxed paper as a tortilla and roll it together.
Twist the ends to shape and seal the ends. I used a rubber band to hold them together.
Put the rolls in a fridge to chill.
