    Queen uh Cuisine's Note:

    This bearnaise sauce is just so good! What can I say. Great on steamed veggies, I love it on a nice piece of filet mignon. :)

      Here it is, the classic recipe I was looking for. I made the mistake of using unsalted butter, but rectified the problem by - you guessed it - adding a bit of salt!

      Mmm. . . bearnaise! This is so delicious, and so bad for you! I made it to go with grilled steaks for our anniversary, so I guess it's OK. I've also used it to complement my Tarragon Turkey Burgers - and it's fabulous! Not an everyday dish, by any means, but definitely a special treat! Thanks.

      A classic that never goes out of fashion! I made this with one substitution, I used my own home-made tarragon white wine vinegar for a more intense flavour. I also found a few tender young buds of tarragon in the garden! We served this with grilled chicken and wild rice salad for an elegant and delicious lunch today. Made for photo tag - thanks Queen uh Cuisine! FT:-)
