    Altered ingredient amounts. Delicious! The only thing I would do differently is use less butter to give it a thicker consistency. When I made it the second time I did that and it turned out great. Much better than when I used the original recipe.  -  24 Jul 2008


    Something else. Here is what I do I take garlic cloves, mince them, then add salt on them and run knife over them back and forth until paste is formed then add to butter (not melted) I throw in chopped fresh parsley and refrigerate. I add a pat or scoop to hot steaks and butter melts as it rests. Nice presentation YUM  -  24 Jul 2008
