A pro chef's fave easy recipe:
Grilled Steak with Fresh Garden Herbs

Grilled Steak with Fresh Garden Herbs was submitted to Bon Appetit magazine by a professional chef.
   It was included in the September 2006 issue’s Fast Easy Fresh section, which was comprised of recipes that pro chefs used at home with their families.
   I can see why this recipe was a chef’s fave. It’s easy to make, so it's good for relaxing at home, yet it still possesses the innovation and elegance of a good chef’s dish.
   The recipe calls for ¾ of a cup of fresh herbs, and so is a great way to use up those garden herbs before they start to peter out. Any combination of herbs will work.
   The recipe also calls for rib-eye or skirt steaks, but my husband and I have often used New York strips instead.
   Minced shallots, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, olive oil and the herbs are whisked together.
   After the steaks are grilled, the herb mixture is spooned over top.
