There is quite a bit of talk lately about browned butter, it seems to be everywhere but it’s really not new.”

If you’ve had browned buttered anything most likely you’ll say it was delicious with a nutty depth of flavor. If you haven’t here is your chance…

I made it really easy for you too:

  • Just add butter to a pan over medium heat and let it cook until it’s brown a golden brown but not burnt the milk solids will turn brown as the water in the butter cooks off. It takes about 5 minutes for the butter to brown, keep an eye on it carefully after it starts foaming and bubbling.
  • Stir the butter to keep it cooking evenly. Once it’s browned remove from heat and place in a separate bowl if not using it immediately or the hot pan will continue to cook it.
  • If you have all your ingredients ready then just whisk in the flour and as soon as it’s all incorporated and hot, then slowly add the wine and chicken stock or broth stir with a whisk and cook over low heat until smooth then add some salt and juice of a lemon.

  1. I just tried this, to bring to a party tomorrow. It’s amazing. Right now it’s late at night and i can’t stop thinking about it to have it on tomorrow. Thanks for sharing.

  2. hi can this sauce be prepare in advance please ? if yes how long does it keep please ?

    1. Yes, you can prepare it in advance and keep in in a jar in the fridge for a week. I recommend a glass jar as I think it stays fresher longer.

  3. This was divine! I made the sauce tonight for my family, and I tossed the sauce with turkey sausage, minced garlic, orange bell pepper, a little onion, green beans, and angel hair spaghetti. Everyone had seconds! Thank you!

  4. This was really good, but it did not reduce well for me and was very liquidy, even stirring in the broth and wine verrrrry slowly. I think next time I will up the butter/flour to make a thicker sauce 🙂

    1. The longer you simmer the sauce the more moisture will boil off and the sauce will become thicker, if you make it ahead of time and refrigerate it the next day it’ll be quite thick.
