Far far too much vinegar. It over powered the entire sauce. Maybe if it were decreased by maybe half, this sauce would be far better. Sadly, we will not give this version a second go.



reduce amount of vinegar by nearly half. Beat eggs & butter with cooled, vinegar mix until fluffy. Microwave half way through cooking beat again till fluffy, very easy.



Vinegar sauce. Chefs say that Bearnaise Sauce is tricky and this short cut doesn't cut it even close. Skip this recipe.
