Scallion Sauce (for Romanian Steak)


- From The Mile End Cookbook (Clarkson Potter, 2012)

1 bunch scallions, roots removed

2 garlic cloves, peeled

1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Zest of 1 lemon

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup canola oil

Diamond Crystal kosher salt

Fresh lemon juice

1. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Add the scallions and blanch them for about 30 seconds, until crisp-tender. Drain and plunge them into a bowl of ice water, then drain again. Chop the scallions.

2. Combine the scallions, garlic, parsley, and lemon zest in the bowl of a food processor and pulse several times. Then, with the processor running, add each of the oils in a slow, steady stream through the hole in the top; continue processing until the oils have emulsified and the sauce has a loose, fairly consistent texture. Add salt and lemon juice to taste.
