Ingredients

Béarnaise sauce
  • 2 tsp 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp finely chopped, fresh tarragon
  • 4 4 egg yolk, at room temperatureegg yolks, at room temperature
  • 10 oz. 275 g butter
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 lbs 900 g (1 steak per portion) ribeye steak, at room temperature(1 steak per portion) ribeye steaks, at room temperature
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp butter, for pan frying
  • salt and pepper
Salad
  • 2 oz. 50 g arugula lettuce
  • 2 oz. 50 g lettuce
  • 8 oz. 225 g cherry tomatoes, quartered

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the vinegar, onion powder, and tarragon.
  2. Place the yolks in a tall and narrow, heat-resistant container. Using an electric hand mixer, whisk the yolks until smooth.
  3. Over medium-low heat, gently melt the butter in a saucepan, or in a microwave oven. (Don’t let it get too hot; you should be able to put your finger in it without getting burned.) A white, milk protein will form at the bottom of the saucepan from the melted butter; avoid using this in the recipe.
  4. Slowly add the butter into the yolks, whisking together with the hand mixer on low speed. When the sauce begins to thicken, increase the speed and whisk together until all of the butter is blended with the yolks. Then whisk in the vinegar-spice mixture until combined. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. To keep the sauce warm, add some water to a pot that is large enough to hold the béarnaise sauce container. Bring to a boil over high heat, and then remove it from the stove. Set the béarnaise sauce container in the water, which will keep it warm, as the meat is being prepared.
  6. Pan-fry or grill the meat to your liking: rare, medium, or well done. Serve with the béarnaise sauce and a generous salad.

    Tip: be careful of the temperature of the butter, if you cant stick your finger into it comfortably after it is melted then it is to hot and will risk ruin the sauce if you add it without cooling it (actually about 35c is totaly ok for making the sauce no need to overheat the butter and risk ruin,

    Be careful, my sauce curdled in the warm bath :(

    I don't understand the nutritional information. When I hover over the information, it says 0% carbs; but at the bottom it says 1g carb / serving. Which is it? I've noticed this issue with other recipes as well.

    Personally I didn't like it, maybe I did it wrong but it set on my plate. Maybe worth warming the plate up

    Your Nutrition calculator seems to be broken and only using the defaulted 4 servings calculations and not calculating what your Nutritional values would be if it was any thing lower or higher than 4 servings.

    Thanks. Far too finaky for me. I have a sauce but God knows, nothing like the photo. Too many bowls and saucepans - and the washing up!

    Also put some broccoli into the sauce and thrown the lot over a rump.steak. More carbs but then I'm not on a no-carb diet but low carbs under 20g to 30g a day, or would be very boring otherwise for me!

    Can we just use the packaged bernaise sauce?
  15. Tiffany
    So is it 10grams of carbs total or 10 grams of carbs per serving?

    Hi Tiffany!

    It's 3 gram per serving.

    So is it 10grams of carbs total or 10 grams of carbs per serving?

  17. Nicholas
    I assume the butter listed under the steak is what we use to pan fry it right?
  18. Nicholas
    How about avoiding the extra step in the tip! Section and just start cooking the meat first and by the time you finish the sauce steak served and pour sauce on top...

    The correct Bernaise Sauce is made with 200ml white wine, 100ml tarragon vinegar, 250 grams unsalted butter (for the clarified butter), 3 shallots finely choped, 4 Tbs chopped tarragon, 2 Tbs chopped chervil, 2tsp freshly cracked black pepper, 4 egg yolks with 1 Tbs water. Place the white wine, tarragon vinegar,black pepper, shallots, 1/2 the taragon and chervil in a sauce pan on low heat. Gently simmer on low heat until liquid is reduced to approximately 1 Tbs and remove pan from heat and allow to cool. Once completely cooled, add egg yolks, water, place on very low heat and begin stirring with a whisk. This step must be on low heat. As you stir, occasionally lift the pan and carefully place your hand on the bottom of the pan. If you can barely stand the heat of the pan, it is too hot so remove pan from heat and place on cutting board or other surface continuing to stir. Once it is cool enough to touch your hand to, place back on the heat and continue to stir. That is how warm the pan may be as you stir. The sauce will begin to thicken. When you can see the bottom of the pan as the whisk passes through the sauce it is thick enough for the next step. Remove from heat and add clarified butter 2 Tbs at a time stirring continuously. When half way through, add a pinch of salt. Last step add the rest of the tarragon and chervil stirring vigorously and enjoy an authentic Bernaise.

    How can you give the proper nutritional info when you don't print the size/weight of the steak? I see this in a lot of recipes on the site.

    Agreed! How big of a steak? I don’t want to overeat protein.

    You may be able to use a whisk or immersion blender instead of a hand mixer.

    You may have inadvertently incorporated the white milk protein collected at the bottom of the melted butter into the sauce.
