matthew's bearnaise sauce

matthew's bearnaise sauce
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup hot melted butter


  1. Combine the vinegar, wine, shallots, tarragon, salt, and pepper in a small saucepan. Boil over medium-high heat until the liquid is reduced to about 2 tablespoons. Strain vinegar reduction into a large bowl; set aside.
  2. Bring several inches of water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat, then reduce heat to low or medium-low to maintain the water at a bare simmer. Whisk the egg yolks into the vinegar reduction, then place the bowl over the simmering water. Whisk constantly until the yolks have thickened and turned a pale lemon yellow color. The mixture will form ribbons when the whisk is lifted from the bowl. Once the yolk has reached this point, remove the bowl from the simmering water.
  3. Slowly pour the hot butter into the egg yolk mixture while continuing to whisk vigorously. Do not stop whisking until all of the butter is fully incorporated or the sauce will separate. Once finished, the mixture will have become a thick and creamy sauce. Serve immediately.
