Our compound butters and no-cook sauces are easy to make and especially convenient for summer meals… but they will keep your cooking game fresh all year long. Read on for the recipes.

 What is Compound Butter?

And why do you need to master this simple condiment? Compound butter combines an ingredient – truffle, basil, garlic, or mushrooms, for example – with creamy butter. Compound butter is easy to make and good to have handy in the refrigerator to impart depth of flavor to grilled steak, pork, lamb or veal chops, and more.

We recommend adding a generous pat on top of your just-cooked meat while it’s resting. That melty butter will add a special something as it mingles with the natural juices.

Here are 6 flavor boosters you can mix up in no time. Find the recipes at dartagnan.com.
