    Bev's Note:

    This classy French sauce is typically served over beef tenderloin filets. It is also a perfect pair with fish or served over vegetables. I found this in Cuisine At Home.

      This was lovely Bev, a good classic Bearnaise recipe which turned out very well. I made the full amount as we LOVE Bearnaise sauce with just about everything. I always make my own when I have time. I hovered between 4 and 5 stars, but for me I would have liked more fresh tarragon; I think 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons would have been better as fresh French tarragon is so subtle and aromatic - dried is much more pungent of course! It was an excellent recipe all the same, and I am glad that I made it - thanks Bev for posting this classic French sauce! FT:-)
