"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 ...

Worked well, I tripled the recipe. My one criticism is that I think there is a bit too much vinegar in the recipe and next time I will cut that part down a bit.

This recipe turned out really well. I used a chardonnay wine instead of the vinegar, which added great flavor. To ensure the egg doesn't cook, make this recipe on the stove top. That allows you ...

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.

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...

The steam method worked perfectly. There was a slight fishy overtone when I removed it from the heat but it may have been the freeze dried tarragon. Not sure. But the recipe works and is very...
