This sauce is usually served with a big, juicy steak for good reason: The pairing is magical. But that doesn’t mean it’s not delicious in other applications. Try it on a baked potato, as a sauce for shrimp, drizzled over roasted asparagus, or as a substitute for mayonnaise. This sauce also pairs brilliantly with our prime rib recipe.
