  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1/2 cup butter-melted


  • Add the egg yolks to a small pot; whisk until bright yellow and slightly thick, about 1 minute.
  • Whisk in lemon juice, and pepper.
  • Melt the butter in the microwave until it is liquid and very hot.
  • Put the pot on low heat (or using a double boiler) continue to whisk while very, very slowly pouring in the hot butter in.
  • While whisking, the sauce will thicken up slightly as it begins to heat in the pot. Just bring the mixture to a temperature of 160 degrees.
  • Tip - Eggs start to curdle at around 160-170°F/71-76°C. The trick is to heat your egg yolks enough to get them thick, but stop right before they reach this temperature.
  • While it is still hot - pour over vegetables, steak, eggs, or whatever you choose to!
  • Enjoy!
