Celebrity Chef Tom Colicchio Teaches Us a Very Versatile Butter Sauce

Featured pan: Made In’s Stainless Steel Saucier.

Chef Tom Colicchio shows us how to make a very versatile melted butter sauce. This sauce can be made in batches and used for anything from chicken and lamb to butter poaching lobster. You can also add this to potatoes or as a base to a sauce.

Steps For Making the Perfect Melted Butter Sauce:

  1. The trick for this technique is to heat up the sauce without having it separate or “break.”
  2. Start with adding water to your saucier pan and heating it up on simmer.
  3. Add your desired amount of butter to the heated up water.
  4. Start whisking immediately and lower the temperature.
  5. Make sure your butter sauce does not break. Even heat is a key to a sauce not breaking on you, so you need a quality saucier pan.
  6. Don’t let your butter sauce boil. If you notice things are getting a bit too greasy, you can add some more water.
