Great Bearnaise Sauce

Bearnaise Sauce is a recipe that can turn your dinner into a gourmet feast. Bearnaise is one of the worlds most classy sauces, and not only is this version quite excellent, it is also nearly indistructable. Albuquerque Magazine named me the "Baron of Bearnaise" for this recipe. This Bearnaise Sauce is rich and exquisitely flavored, and is also quite easy to do. It will keep in the refrigerator for at least a couple days. It is prepared in three parts that come together quickly at the end.

First, take:

1/4 Medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 tsp. dry tarragon, or good wad of fresh
Good grind of black pepper
1/2 cup Chablis

Simmer in small pan until liquid reduced to a couple tablespoons.

Meanwhile, in another small pan, put:

1/2 pound of butter

Melt gently and bring to gentle simmer.

In the blender put:

6 egg yolks
2-3 tbl. tarragon vinegar

The trick is to have all three parts ready at the same time. When the wine has simmered down about right the butter should just be coming to a simmer, and the blender should be ready. Then:

Turn on the blender and dribble in the butter, sort of slowly at first. When the butter is all added, add the wine reduction. Let it whirl for a few seconds, then put it in a bowl and chill it for a couple hours.

Bearnaise is good with red meat, vegtables, egg dishes and seafood. It has a particular affinity for asparagus, venison, filet mignon, artichokes, and lobster. There might be nothing in this world better then a rare filet of venison, say elk or moose, topped with an artichoke heart and well covered with Bearnaise. With a bottle of red wine, a leafy salad, and good company, this paradise is paradise enough.
