Béarnaise Sauce

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • chopped fresh chives (optional)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Season the filets with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steaks and cook about 5 minutes. Flip them over and cook about 3 to 5 more minutes or until desired doneness. Remove steak, cover with foil and let it rest while you make the sauce.
  2. To make the sauce, beat the egg yolk and water together over a double boiler (or a metal mixing bowl set over a pot of boiling water) until frothy, whisking constantly, about 3 to 5 minutes. Turn off the heat. Add the butter and whisk to combine. Add the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Add the chives, if using. 
  3. To serve, drizzle the sauce over the steaks.
