Miso-Mustard Butter Sauce
At chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Prime Steakhouse, when you order your preferred cut, the choice of accompaniments includes this sauce with intense umami flavor and a mustardy zing. This recipe first appeared in our April 2012 issue along with Max Jacobson's story Dining Like a Rhinestone Cowboy.
