Holy Asparagus! This Bearnaise is awesome!
This is a review of the Food Network’s Bearnaise Sauce below:
The bottom line … this sauce is to die for. However, it does take some time to make and it was just complicated enough that if you are a beginner cook, you should try to do this without multitasking the first time. Also, one other consideration is that not everyone knows what tarragon or shallots are, so I had to actually help my grocer find them at the store. Here’s the process I used to make this great sauce:
The Food Networks recipe calls for:
- White Wine Vinegar
- White Wine
- Black Pepper
- Egg Yolks
- Unsalted Butter (I used sweet cream butter)
To make the first part, add the white wine vinegar, white wine, 1 tbsp of the tarragon, salt, and pepper to a heated saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for five minutes.
