Bearnaise Sauce Recipe

Beef Sirloin Steak

Sirloin steak is one of the most common cuts of beef and a popular choice for steak lovers. It has a fine but firm texture, a richness in flavour and it’s perfectly suited to grilling or barbecuing.  It’s also known by several different names, which often causes confusion when you are interpreting a recipe, ordering at a restaurant or at your local butcher or supermarket.  Sirloin Steak, Porterhouse Steak, New York Strip or Striploin Steak – they’re all the same cut of beef and they’re all boneless.

Béarnaise

Béarnaise Sauce originates from France and is a perfect accompaniment for a steak. Traditionally it's made by hand. Yolks are combined with an herb-infused vinegar reduction and then melted butter is carefully and slowly drizzled in while whisking.  We offer a preprepared option.
