Classic Bèarnaise sauce is made with egg yolks and lots of butter. Sounds like a paleo dream come true if you ask me! The yolk is the very best part of the egg and it’s absolutely loaded with things that are good for you. Gone are the days of egg white only dishes…if you don’t want your yolks, I’ll take them!

Boil wine, vinegar, shallots, and 1 tablespoon tarragon in a small heavy saucepan until liquid is reduced to 2 tablespoons (this goes pretty quickly so don’t put your heat up too high), then strain through a fine-mesh sieve set into a medium metal bowl, pressing on and then discarding solids.
Whisk yolks into vinegar mixture, then set bowl over a pan of barely simmering water and cook, whisking constantly, until yolks have thickened slightly (if your heat is too high, you’ll end up with scrambled eggs).
Whisk in butter 1 spoon at a time, adding each spoonful before previous one has melted completely. Remove from heat and whisk in lemon juice, remaining tablespoon tarragon, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper (or to taste). Serve steaks with sauce. Lick your plate 🙂
