Bearnaise Sauce for Prime Rib Roast

December 27, 2012Teresa

Bearnaise Sauce for Prime Rib Roast rocks! It’s a spectacular French sauce to serve over prime rib or other pricey cuts of steak. The delicious creamy sauce is spiced with tarragon, chervil and ground mustard. It’s an amazing accompaniment for beef and incredibly easy to make since it’s all done in the microwave! Another nice feature of this recipe is that it’s gluten free.

This is my mother-in-law’s fabulous Bearnaise sauce recipe that we serve over prime rib whenever we make it. It’s actually a take-off on Hollandaise Sauce with some tweaks. This fantastic sauce is incredibly quick and easy to make yet so delicious to the taste buds.

If you’re looking for a wonderful sauce to serve with beef or even fish, this sauce is one you ought to consider trying. It’s tasty, economical, easy and just plain delightful. Our family loves this wonderful Bearnaise Sauce for Prime Rib Roast. We hope you will like it too.

When I initially published this recipe in December 2012, I was still taking pictures with an iPhone 3. Consequently my pictures were grainy and just not very good. I remade this recipe both in November and December 2017 and retook the pictures.

This time when I made the recipe, I made it two ways. I made it in the microwave in November and in December I decided to make it on the stove. One thing I recommend is adding the chervil for this recipe. I’ve had a jar in my spice rack for several years so I added it, even though my mother-in-law never used it. It’s a delightful herb even if it’s not used much here in the states.

If you’re looking for an easy sauce recipe for beef, fish, chicken or pork, Bearnaise Sauce for Prime Rib Roast is perfect!
