Rendering your own fat at home is a great way to get the most from your meat purchases, and make your favorite dishes even more delicious.
Green Goddess Dressing & Dipping Sauce
Luscious, tart and herby, Green Goddess dressing makes for a great pairing with grilled meats.
I know. You may be wondering why I would bother having a salad dressing on a meat-driven website. I admit, it’s unusual, but hear me out. As a meat cook, the objective is always to have the meat be the star of the show. So we look for ways to enhance, celebrate and shine the spotlight on it.
This is particularly true of grilled meats, where simple seasoning combined with a kiss of flame can result in some incredible eats. I’m always on the lookout for fresh, complimentary accompaniments for grilled meats like Chimichurri or Salsa Verde. Green Goddess is very similar to these herbaceous condiments – herb driven with lots of fresh lemon juice. The perfect balance to smokey, fatty, rich meat.
I serve this Green Goddess as a dipping sauce or drizzle for grilled chicken, and it’s always a hit.
