Steak with Bernaise Sauce

On my recent trip to Hong Kong I had an amazing thin cut sirloin steak that was served with Bernaise sauce. The steak was cooked perfectly and it was australian beef which had excellent flavour despite not having too much marbling.

I know here in North America, steaks are usually served with as little sauce as possible, as it is really the flavour and quality of meat that shines. However, I was hoping to find a place here in Toronto that may have what I am looking for. The strong taste of the meat accompanied by the creamy bernaise sauce is still heavily implanted on my palate, and my mouth is watering just thinking about it right now.

I'm hoping someone can recommend a place that can serve a nice a thin cut steak with bernaise sauce for me to kill my craving.

Here is a pic. of what I ate.

  1. I have an uncle who loves his steak with bernaise and, given my dining experiences with him, I think they will do it for you at most steak houses. I just checked, and it looks like you can get it at Harbour 60 and Morton's (likely elsewhere as well, but those are the only ones I checked).

      Great thanks for the reply! I'll definitely try and visit Harbour 60 then one of these days....

      My only concern though is that the cuts of steak will be too thick. When it comes to steak with sauces, I prefer really thin cuts like in the picture I posted above. Actually for some reason, even though I am a huge meat lover, I always prefer thinner cuts, don't know why!

        I tried the steak w/ bernaise sauce @ Morton's and the tenderloin steak I ordered (which was beautifully cooked to my specs) was probably twice the thickness as what s0memale's photo shows. Plus the sauce was awful (luckily I asked them to put the sauce on the side).

      2. I just had a steak with bearnaise sauce last night at Le Paradis. It was a flank steak, which is naturally a tougher cut, but it was thinly sliced and smothered in rich sauce. Delicious!

          Good tip -- you'll get a much less expensive meal at Le Paradis than a steak house (esp. Harbour 60), s0memale, and it will no doubt be very yummy too.

            Yes, as you will on a good night at Le Petit Dejeuner, King E opposite George Brown.

        2. Thanks for all the tips so far guys!

          The menu at Le Paradis looks really good! Reasonable prices too!
