Yo, Culinary Student here, I can tell you, that while it's not a sauce by definition, we have used compound butters, (butter with stuff like herbs, bell peppers, mixed in), as sauces for foods like steak, vegetables, and just for garnish on the plate.

Why isn't it a sauce then # 71? As far as I know a sauce is something you eat with a meal, that would otherwise be to dry or not so tasty... and Butter does just that if you melt it ;)

They're both right. Butter can be a sauce, but not always. A sauce is merely a liquid or semi liquid used to add flavor in the preparation of other foods. Butter can be used this way.
