When you make this sauce make sure that sauce pan is not too hot or you will end up burning the butter. Depending on your stove it could be set between medium to low. When you make roux, stove temperature should not be on high.
What is Roux?
Roux is butter and flour cooked together and used as a thickening agent when making sauces. Heat sauce pan over medium heat on stove top. Butter is melted, flour is added and stirred until mixture is well blended and smooth. It takes about a minute and half to get it smooth.
Basically, after making the roux you just add all the ingredients until well blended and thick. That’s it. It is super easy. This creamy mustard sauce is so simple and very flavorful.
