Or the shallots. And instead of a fresh tarragon and vinegar reduction, he uses a secret ingredient: tarragon Dijon mustard. Just whisk away over very low heat. It’s so incredibly quick and easy. Admittedly, there’s no substitute for butter. But this is a delicious variation that’s much healthier than butter-laded béarnaise.
