Homemade Barnaise Sauce: Easier than You Think

Bearnaise sauce is a French favorite and has a delicious gourmet taste of butter, herbs, shallot, and tarragon. This recipe is much simpler than one would think and can be made in only 15 minutes. To start, you will need a 1/4 cup of tarragon leaves, minced shallot, 1 stick of butter, peppercorns, 3 egg yolks, and champagne vinegar for flavor.

Next, grab a small saucepan and set the stove at a medium heat. You will now need to mix your ingredients of vinegar, tarragon, and shallot. Let the mix simmer for about 5 minutes before taking it off the stove to cool off. Now use a blender on the lowest setting and combine the eggs and butter. Once the blend is almost fully mixed, speed the blender up on a higher setting to finish the job. Add this to the rest of the sauce and stir while you lightly add a few peppercorns for extra zing. This blend of bearnaise sauce has about 4 to 6 servings and is the perfect sauce for dipping bread and having as a side for grilled chicken. You can also use bearnaise sauce as a marinade to give food an extra buttery flavor.
