Who is Matt Prentice?
Have you ever been to one of Matt Prentice restaurants? The Matt Prentice Restaurant Group used to run more than a dozen eateries in the metropolitan area of Detroit, Michigan. Ready to make a come back, Detroit chef Matt Prentice and Leon & Lulu c0-owner Mary Liz Curtin are in the process of opening and new American Cuisine restaurant in downtown Clawson. Matt Prentice was the inspiration for our Healthier Alternative Zip Sauce.
Inspiration for the Healthier Alternative Zip Sauce
Matt Prentice is well known in Detroit for his special Zip sauce at the No. VI Chop House and Lobster Bar. Seriously delicious, you almost just want to do shots of this sauce. Super buttery, herbs and melt in your mouth steak is just what you need. However, you don’t need the fat, calories and dairy in the real butter as Extra Virgin Olive Oil is delicious and so much better for you.
Keeping it Easy and Healthy
We have used only 4 little ingredients in our Healthier Alternative Zip Sauce and it takes less than 5 minutes to whip together. You gotta love that! We used Mie Radici Extra Virgin Olive Oil, fresh minced garlic, soy sauce (or tamari sauce) to keep it gluten free and a little fresh ground black pepper. That is it. No fuss. No worries. Our Healthier Alternative Zip sauce is Keto and low carb friendly, gluten-free and vegan. Feel free to add fresh herbs like rosemary and oregano or whatever your little heart desires.
Fabulous ways to use ZIP SAUCE
- Delicious as a dipping sauce for grilled and pan fried steaks, grilled portobella mushrooms and roasted pork tenderloin
- Use as a marinade for your grilled vegetables and tempeh
- Leftover zip sauce is great thrown into fried rice and Chinese Stir fries
