    littleturtle's Note:

    Demi-glace is traditionally made by combining veal stock and espagnole and then simmering it until reduced by half to make a thick, rich sauce. Due to the considerable effort involved in making the traditional demi-glace, this simple stock reduction is a common substitute. Julia Child referred to this as a "semi-demi-glace".

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cup

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 quarts homemade beef stock
    • 2 tablespoons red wine (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large saucepan, bring stock to a boil.
    2. 2
      Turn heat down to the lowest heat setting and allow to simmer for several hours until stock has reduced to 1-2 cups (remove any scum that rises to the surface as it simmers).
    3. 3
      It has reduced to demi-glace if it thoroughly coats the back of the spoon.
    4. 4
      *It's not as good as the homemade stock, but a good quality canned beef consommé can be used as a shortcut substitution. Reduce by half in the same way.
    5. 5
      **In a real pinch 2 teaspoons beef base can be dissolved in 2 tablespoons red wine as a substitute for demi-glace.

      This glaze recipe is one that I won't be without now that I have tried it. I used homemade beef stock and Merlot for the wine. Reduced it until it got on the thick side, and used it for sauce with my steak dinner. Before serving it I did add some butter mixed with a little flour to make it a little thicker and give it a nice sheen. It was delicious and will be used often! Thank you for sharing this one with us Littleturtle! Linda
