Parsley Butter:

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1 tablespoon lemon zest

1 tablespoon horseradish

1 tablespoon tomato paste

1/4 teaspoon celery salt

Few dashes Worcestershire sauce

Juice from 1/2 lemon

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Bloody Mary Shots:

3 cups tomato puree

1/4 cup vodka

1 tablespoon horseradish

1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon hot sauce

Squeeze of fresh lemon juice

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


6 rib eye steaks

Extra-virgin olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


3 cups Italian flat-leaf parsley leaves

2 cups celery leaves

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. For the butter: Combine the butter, parsley, lemon zest, horseradish, tomato paste, celery salt, Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice in a bowl and stir to blend. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the parsley butter to the bottom of a large zip-top bag. Push all of the butter to the bottom, roll into a log and freeze until ready to serve.
  2. For the bloody mary shots: Combine the tomato puree, vodka, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, lemon juice, a pinch of salt and some pepper in a large bowl and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
  3. For the steaks: Heat a large skillet over high heat. Rub the steaks with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and place in the hot skillet. Cook in batches if needed, do not crowd the pan. Cook the steaks for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Make sure to get the edges cooked. Remove the steaks from the heat and let rest before serving.
  4. For the salad: Combine the parsley leaves, celery leaves, olive oil and lemon juice and toss well to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. To serve: Transfer the steaks to plates and divide the salad among the plates. Remove the butter from the freezer and slice off the plastic bag. Cut slices of butter from the log and place 1 to 2 slices on top of the warm steaks. Divide the bloody mary mixture between 6 large shot glasses or small bowls and serve alongside the steak and salad.
