This wonderful sauce is simple enough for everyday meals, but elegant enough to serve to visitors. It has a sweet/sour , buttery flavour that goes well with steak (we had rump). If you make it before your steak is cooked and let it sit, it splits, but comes back together easily with a re-heat and a quick whisk.
