The German herb butter is a classic in Germany and is served together with a rump steak or used for the meat on the barbecue – it is the butter for steaks! This is an original and authentic German recipe, very easy to make, and perfect to freeze: Cut the butter in slices and wrap each slice separately, then freeze it. So it is ready when you need it. Just place it on top of a steak. Happy Cooking!
