Recipe

Sauce Bearnaise

For: steaks, boiled or fried fish, broiled chicken, egg dishes, timbales. Bearnaise sauce differs from hollandaise only in taste and strength; instead of lemon juice, its basic flavoring is a reduction of wine, vinegar, shallots, pepper, and tarragon. The techniques for making the two sauces are similar.

Yield : 1½ cups

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup dry white wine or dry white vermouth
  • 1 Tb minced shallots or green onions
  • 1 Tb minced fresh tarragon or ½ Tb dried tarragon
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 Tb cold butter
  • ½ to 2/3 cup melted butter
  • 2 Tb fresh minced tarragon or parsley

Equipment: 

  • A small saucepan

Directions

Boil the vinegar, wine, shallots or onions, herbs, and seasonings over moderate heat until the liquid has reduced to 2 tablespoons. Let it cool.

Then proceed as though making a hollandaise. Beat the egg yolks until thick. Strain in the vinegar mixture and beat. Add 1 tablespoon of cold butter and thicken the egg yolks over low heat. Beat in the other tablespoon of cold butter, then the melted butter by droplets. Correct seasoning, and beat in the tarragon or parsley.
