    Beurre Blanc is a classic French sauce translated as “white butter”. Decadent and rich, serve it over meats and pasta dishes.

    Let start by saying I am not a classically trained French cook by any means. I’m just a lady in a kitchen and cooking makes me happy. You know what else makes me happy? White butter, also known as beurre blanc.

    Beurre blanc sauce is a hot butter sauce mixture made up of white wine, lemon juice, shallots, and butter mixed into the concoction slowly melted a little bit at the time.

    Of the classic sauces, beurre blanc is by far my favorite. Versatile and perfect for chicken, seafood, beef, pasta and vegetables, there really isn’t anything beurre blanc doesn’t taste good on.

    The only drawback to making beurre blanc is that it tastes best fresh. It isn’t a “make ahead sauce”. In fact, it tastes best right after the butter gets whisked in.

    It’s a good thing this recipe only takes 25 minutes so you don’t have to expend too much time or energy to whip up this delicious white wine butter sauce.


    The trick to making a good beurre blanc is low to medium heat and continuous stirring to prevent the sauce from separating, making for a perfect emulsion. Shallots and seasoning add flavor and are filtered out for a silky smooth sauce.
