Salt

Freshly ground black pepper

8 tablespoons butter

20 tourneed small white potatoes

1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley

For the Sauce:

3 tablespoons white vinegar

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Season the beef with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, over high heat, melt the butter. Add the beef and sear for a couple of minutes on each side.

Place the potatoes in the oven and roast the potatoes until golden brown and tender, about 20 minutes, shaking the pan every 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and add the parsley. For the Sauce: In a saucepan, combine the vinegar, wine, peppercorns, shallots, and tarragon. Bring the liquid to a boil and reduce to 1 tablespoon. Add 1 tablespoon of water. Combine the reduced liquid and egg yolks in a stainless bowl, over simmering water. Whisk until frothy. In a steady stream, add the butter until the sauce thickens. Season with salt and pepper. Strain the sauce through a chinois and set aside.
