1/2 Photos of Company Steak With Bearnaise Butter
Bearnaise Butter melts over hot grilled or broiled steaks of your choice, making for a delicious entree that tastes like you really slaved (but you didn't). We love our steaks very rare (black & blue), but the butter's great and enhances everything from rare to well done steaks. Perfect for company! Make sure you have some bread to soak up the juices and butter. (Adapted from a recipe on epicurious.com)
