mentioning julia child might bring to mind complicated recipes with long lists of ingredients, but she has some simpler recipes which are also delicious. 
I sauteed a pound of steak in olive oil and butter on the stove, and then placed in the oven to cook more (it was really thick). after draining meat fat from the pan, i added more butter (!) and a large shallot that i had minced. once the shallot was nice and transclusent, i added 1/2 cup of the red i was drinking (which happened to be a tasty malbec) and simmered that shit down. off heat, i stirred in another dollop butter and chopped parsley, salt, and pepper. I drizzled that on my steak and roasted veggies, drank more malbec, and felt pretty good about life. 
thanks julia!
