Here is a simple Cream Sauce made with one of my favorite ingredients, Tasso.
Tasso Cream Sauce Recipe
2 Tbsp Usalted Butter
1/2 Cup Tasso, Finely Diced
2 Tbsp All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 Cups Half & Half
Kosher Salt, to taste
2 tsp Fresh Lemon Juice
2 Dashes Hot Sauce (I use Crystal)
1 Dash Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 Cup Mexican Crema Agria, or Creme Fraiche
Add the butter and Tasso to a small saucepan. Saute until lightly browned, incorporate the flour, stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Add the cold half & half, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer, cook for 5 minutes. Season with the salt and add the lemon juice and the sauces. Just before serving whisk in the crema and warm through.
