Sauce Meunière is a simple, rustic preparation variant of a Brown Butter Sauce consisting of Brown ButterChopped Parsley, and Lemon Juice. The term Meunière means the Miller's Wife in French and is used to denote something simple, something "Rustic" or "Rural."


As with many of these Classic Sauces, modern chefs have adapted them to their circumstances. You may find a Sauce Meunière, or a recipe for one, that includes other ingredients like Worcestershire Sauce, Red Wine Vinegar or even Beef Stock. Don't be surprised, just roll with it.
