L’Entrecote famous sauce
Secret French Steak Sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 large shallots
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cups chicken stock
1 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons mustard
1 bunch tarragon
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Peel and slice the shallots.
Peel and roughly chop the garlic.
Add the olive oil to a small pot over medium heat.
Add the garlic and shallots and cook until soft and slightly colored.
Add the chicken stock. Simmer for three minutes.
Pull the tarragon leaves off of the stems and put them in a blender.
Add the remaining ingredients to the blender.
Carefully pour the chicken stock mixture into the blender.
Puree until completely smooth.
Pour back into the pan and bring to a boil. Cook for one minute. If the sauce is too thin simmer for a few more minutes.
Pour over slices of medium rare (or as you like it) strip steak or your choice of steak. Serve with potatoes or of course Pomme Frites! Try to resist doing shots of the sauce.
There is a famous restaurant in Paris that serves only steak and pomme frites. You only have to order what temperature you want the steak. It comes smothered in this magical green “secret sauce”. The recipe is closely guarded. This is my version of that sauce.
