Tips & Tricks
This is an Emulsified Butter Sauce – Too Hot it will separate – Too Cold it will Separate.
We use Heavy Cream to help create the Emulsification process. (Trade Secret – Stabilizer)
We use Chardonnay due to its buttery flavors and notes.
Whisking / Stirring with the whisk – you want to keep the warm cream moving while adding your cold butter, if for any reason it sits, without movement, the butter will melt unevenly and separate… and you must start over!
Meter: Medium Yield: 1 Cup Time: Prep 5 minutes.Cook time 20 minutes.Finish time 10 mins
1 Tablespoon Black Peppercorn
1 Sprig of Fresh Thyme
1 Bay Leaf
1 Cup White Wine (Chardonnay)
1 Fluid Ounce Heavy Whipping Cream
2 Sticks Butter (Unsalted) Cold
Take butter out of paper, with a sharp knife cut into small squares. Place on a small plate, Refrigerate until needed – It is KEY to have your butter as Cold as Possible (but not Frozen)
Clean your Shallot, cut off both ends, cut in half and peel off the outer skin.
Slice the shallot ¼ inch thick (it does not need to be uniform; we will be straining this out
Place sliced shallot into the 2Qt Pot.
Add in 1 Tablespoon Black Peppercorns, Thyme Sprig (whole), Bay leaf into the 2 Qt pot.
Measure out 1 Cup White wine, pour into the 2Qt Pot with the other ingredients.
Turn on Burner to Medium Heat – Place 2Qt Pot on top.
Reduce white wine until “Au Sec” which means: Almost Dry (20-30 mins) do not burn.
About 1 oz remaining – tip the pan backwards to gauge how much is left.
Add in 1 oz of Heavy Whipping Cream – Place back on burner, lower heat to LOW
Reduce heavy cream, by half.
Pull Sauce Pot off heat (keep burner on low) whisk the cream, wine, shallot, peppercorn mixture to incorporate.
Pull Butter from Refrigerator.
This is where the butter sauce could “Break” The cream can not be Simmering but it still has to be warm enough to melt the butter – slowly – to create the emulsification
While Whisking the Heavy Cream sauce, add in a few butter squares at a time.
Continue to Whisk, always, until all the butter is emulsified into the heavy cream sauce.
If the sauce begins to cool too much due to the cold butter, Move the pan halfway onto the Low Burner, continuing to Whisk. – Pull off heat if Mixture gets too hot.
Keep adding Butter little by little, keep stirring until all butter is incorporated and emulsified.
Once All the butter is added, whisked in, and emulsified, remove from heat stir for another minute.
Strain through a fine mesh strainer, into a bowl or smaller sauce pan.
