Ingredients

  • 1/4

    cup finely chopped shallots

  • 1

    oz. Butter (1/4 stick)

  • 1

    Tb. Cracked black (or green) peppercorn

  • 1/2

    cup red wine (Use a good table wine)

  • 8

    fl. oz. demi-glace *

  • 2

    Tb. finely chopped parsley

  • Pepper to taste

  • We recommend trying 1 1/2 oz of Demi-Glace Gold reconstituted in 8 fluid ounce of hot water.

Directions

Melt butter in a sauce pan and sauté shallots for approx. 2 minutes (until transparent). Add peppercorns and red wine, and reduce to an essence (approx. 2-3 minutes). Add the demi-glace and stir with a whisk until glace is dissolved. Add water and simmer until the sauce is thick enough to coat a spoon. Blend in chopped parsley and serve over broiled steaks. Sauce is best over strip steaks (approx. 8-12 oz.) with all fat trimmed. Steaks can be either pan fried, broiled, or grilled, whatever your preference. The amount of peppercorn may be varied to suit your personal taste.
