Bearnaise Sauce II

Rated as 4.61 out of 5 Stars

"This deliciously creamy herb sauce is so simple to make using a microwave, but if you do not have one, place your bowl over a pan of simmering water to heat it gently. Excellent German recipe for Bernaise sauce. Great on steaks, chicken, vegetables and fish."

This a VERY good and extremely easy recipe. It's pretty difficult to mess it up if you follow the recipe. I run the onion, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, egg yolks, and all the spices through ...

This bearnaise sauce was delicious! Chicken Oscar is one of my favorite dishes, but this was my first time making the bearnaise from scratch...and I will never go back to the packaged bearnaise...

This was very easy and tasty. I would use a little less lemon as it was quite tart. The onions made the sauce a little lumpy in texture. I used sour cream and it worked well.
