Cumberland Sauce

Recipe by ChrisMc

This is a sweet and spicy sauce from the British Isles - I've heard that it's from Ireland and from England, although with the name, I would guess England.

Easy and unbelievable on leftover beef. I used the wine I had - a cabernet - certainly didn't detract from the flavor at all. My husband is a bland flavor man and I am a spicy girl - we both loved it.
