My idea of a special occassion dish, and one that Russell is often asked to cook for ME. I could eat the Salsa Verde off a spoon, I love the flavours so much.

What an easy way to prepare such a wonderful cut of beef.. We absolutely loved the salsa verde.. I have had this in restaurants before and always enjoyed it but have never made it my self. I am so glad I found this recipe, this is truly restaurant quality at half the price, since you can create such an elegant dish right in the comfort of your own home. I did have to use brown mustard seeds as that is what I had on hand but apart from that made as stated. I am not even a lover of anchovies, but love that little extra flavour they bring to this. A truly wonderful recipe Jan and we will be enjoying this again and again.. A definite winner!!

Absolutely amazing I felt like I was in a restaurant! Thanks for posting this wonderful special treat recipe. Would like to try it with other cuts of meat as suggested. Last but definitely NOT least I ADMIT that anchovies are wonderful in salsa verde and I cannot believe I never tried this wonderful sauce before. Mark was skeptical about this green sauce with "fancy" things in it but not only did he drizzle around the plate just like a chef, once he tasted it the sauce went everywhere... even on the baked potato ! Thanks Jan for another winner.
