Sous Vide Hollandaise Sauce

Anova Culinary

If you’ve ever tried to make hollandaise sauce the old fashioned way, you know it can be a little tricky to get a perfect consistency. With the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker, however, it’s really easy. This is great over steamed or oven-roasted asparagus, or on eggs benedict.

  1. Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 145°F (62°C).

  3. Reduce heat and simmer until the mixture is syrupy, about 10 minutes.
  4. Strain the wine mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a blender. Add the egg yolks and puree mixture until smooth and frothy, about 30 seconds.
