Vegetable Garnish

French and Italian and Swiss cooks frequently serve a vegetable garnish with steaks.


  • 4 tablespoonfuls of shortening or vegetable oil
  • 1 green pepper, chopped fine
  • 2 leeks, chopped fine
  • 8 branches of parsley, chopped fine
  • 2 onions, chopped fine
  • 10 branches of tarragon, chopped fine
  • 1/2 cup of chives, chopped fine


Place shortening or vegetable oil in a frying pan and add the the rest of the ingredients and cook very slowly until soft, taking care not to brown. Now season with salt, pepper and dress on a hot platter in a little mound at the bottom of the steak. Garnish with a slice of lemon.
