Source: Cooking Light "Port, a fortified dessert wine, has a distinctively smooth sweetness. If you don't have port, substitute red wine."

Excellent! A really nice rich sauce that went wonderfully with mashed potatoes and a few vegies on the side. Reduction of the sauce took a bit longer than indicated, but I'd expected that and the few extra minutes gave the meat a perfect amount of resting time.

Very quick and easy to make. We enjoyed the flavours of this sauce and the bonus being low fat. I made exactly as posted but I guess if you wanted you could add some heavy cream but of course that would add to the calories....LOL Another keeper for us :)
