Ruth's Creamed Spinach

Ruth's Chris Steak House

 

Makes 4 Servings

 

Ingredients

 

  • 1 stick salted butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk or half & half
  • 2 tbs chopped onion
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 lb fresh spinach, well cleaned and stemmed
  • 2 tbs salted soft butter
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste

 

Process for the Béchamel Sauce:

  1. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat until foamy, add flour and stir until light brown in color.
  2. Add onion and seasonings and then whisk in milk, stirring until the mixture comes to a boil and thickens.
  3. Reduce the heat and cook for five minutes, then pass through a fine strainer and reserve. The sauce will be very thick.

 

Process for the Spinach:

  1. Cook spinach immersed in boiling water for one minute. Remove and refresh in iced water to cool it off.
  2. Squeeze it until it is very dry and then purée it in a food processor. Set aside.
  3. Just before serving, combine the sauce with the puréed spinach and cook on low heat, stirring often for about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Finish by stirring in 2 tablespoons of soft butter.
