Veloute Sauce Recipe

Ingredients:
6 cups chicken stock
2 Tbsp clarified butter
2 Tbsp thickener (see Low Carb Thickeners)

Instructions:

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

Heat the chicken stock to a simmer in a medium saucepan, then lower the heat so that the stock just stays hot.

In a separate heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt the clarified butter over a medium heat until it becomes frothy. Don’t let the butter turn brown as this will affect the taste.

Stir the thickener that you chose into the melted butter a little bit at a time, until it is a pale-yellow-colored paste. This paste is called a roux.

Heat the roux for another few minutes or so, until it has turned a light blond color. Don’t let it get too dark.

Using a wire whisk, slowly add the hot chicken stock to the roux, whisking vigorously to make sure it’s free of lumps.

Simmer for about 30 minutes (the volume will be reduced by about one-third) Stir frequently to make sure the sauce doesn’t scorch the bottom of the pan. You can use a ladle to skim off any impurities that rise to the surface.

The resulting sauce should be smooth and velvety. If it’s too thick, whisk in a bit more hot stock.

Remove the sauce from the heat.

If you want an extra smooth consistency, carefully pour the sauce through a wire mesh strainer lined with a piece of cheesecloth.

Keep the velouté covered until you’re ready to use it.

Makes about 1 quart of chicken velouté sauce.

Velouté is one of the five sauces of classical cuisine. It can also be used for fish.

Veloute Sauce Recipe

Ingredients:
1 oz. of butter
3 tb spn plain flour
1 1/2 c. chicken, fish or veal stock
1 tb spn cream
Lemon juice to taste

Instructions:

Melt the butter in a pan, add the flour and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes, or until a thick paste has formed- be careful not to brown the mixture or it will color your sauce.

Whisk in the stock a little at a time to prevent the mixture becoming lumpy. Cook the sauce, whisking continuously, for 3-5 minutes- it should be quite thick and not have a floury taste.

Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice, adding a little at a time.  Finally, stir in the cream. Serve immediately, as this sauce will quickly thicken if left to stand. If necessary, add a little extra stock to thin it down.
