I made this with 2 of the beef flavor Knorr Homestyle stock concentrates, one regular chicken bouillon cube, regular salt Kikkoman and Holland House brand red cooking wine, which is flavored with 1.5% salt. I agree, great flavor but way too salty. And I like salty. Not sure how switching from corn starch to flour would change the sodium level. I want to try this recipe again with reduced sodium soy, 1 beef stock concentrate and 1 reduced sodium chicken stock concentrate because Knorr doesn't have the beef flavor in reduced sodium, only chicken, and maybe an unsalted red wine. Wondering how I could desalinate my current leftovers...
The only reason I gave this 4 stars is because it's too salty as written. I tried using flour instead of corn starch to try and cut the salt and added some milk too which gave the sauce a beautiful smooth and rich consistency but it was still too salty. Next time I'll use half the amount of bouillon and a lower salt variety of both the soy sauce and the bouillon. Other than that it has incredible flavor and texture. I used a box Merlot, it was the perfect choice of of red wine :)
Very good, we came up with our own photo too!
