Recipe by Chef John
"This is a really quick, easy, nice sauce for steak that has no butter. Did I mention it has no butter? Just a few minutes of preparation and onto the steak it goes."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
tarragon Dijon mustard
I just whipped up a bit of this wonderful bernaise sauce. I followed the recipe with the exception of not having the tarragon mustard so I used crushed dried tarragon leaves and regular dijon mustard. It was creamy and rich tasting. Didn't miss the butter at all. I drenched a few slices of french baguette with it and it was outstanding. Thanks Chef John.
So sorry, but we just didn't like this very much, and I love bernaise. It tasted harsh from the vinegar and mustard, and didn't have that silky texture that the traditional recipe has, which makes sense since it's butterless. I guess we will just stick to the regular bernaise. Thanks for posting an interesting idea, though.
