We make a lot of these sorts of sauces to go over steak and chicken breasts. I just haven't written them down before now. This amount of sauce could probably serve 4 normal people, but we are piggies and it's enough for the two of us. We sort of think of it as another side dish;-)

  4. Cook for about 5 minutes more or until reduced to a nice sauce consistency.

This sauce is amazing. I was down at the shops and wanted to try something a little different and thought that bacon and mushrooms would go well in a sauce. This recipe does wonders for the mushrooms and bacon. Love it!!!!!

We made a double recipe to go over pasta and it was really lovely. Quick and simple to make too. Would be great over steak or chicken as Jan suggests.
