Blender Bearnaise

April 15th, 2009 by

Béarnaise and Hollandaise were sauces that always scared me. The traditional method is time consuming and can easily result in curdling of the egg yolks or separation, if you add the butter too quickly.
But nothing beats a good piece of steak with a buttery Béarnaise sauce, and the ‘out the jar’ and ‘packet mix’ versions just don’t cut it!

Easy Hollandaise Sauce

March 22nd, 2009 by

Ingredients

 

4 egg yolks

½ tsp Dijon mustard

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 squirt Tabasco

4oz butter

Pinch Salt

 

 

Melt the butter in a sauce pan, and keep warm. Into the blender place the yolks, salt, mustard, lemon juice, and Tabasco. Blend for three seconds. Heat melted butter until it just starts to sputter, but not burn. Then turn the blender back on, and while the blender is going, slowly pour in the hot butter. The temperature of the butter is the secret: It must be very hot, and the hollandaise will thicken immediately.
