Great steak sauce

  1. Add all items except Roux and Butter into a sauce pan, cover and heat over medium heat for approximately 45 minutes.
  2. Remove vegetables and continue cooking uncovered untill liquid reduces to about a quarter of the volume.
  3. Mix in a small amount of Roux to slightly thicken sauce, lightly boil for a couple of minutes (should just thinly coat back of spoon).
  4. Lower heat and add butter to finish sauce (do not let sauce boil after adding the butter).
  5. Enjoy.

Fantastic for steaks! To cheat a bit, I used beef stock cubes with no extra fluid, which reduced cooking time quite dramatically.

This is so far superior to any bottled sauce. I completely left out the 3/4 cup of butter and it was great! I grilled filet mignon and topped it with this sauce and Crispy Fried Onion Strings recipe #136653, served over a bed of cheddar mashed potatoes and DH went nuts over it!

WOW!!! Couldn't say enough great things about this recipe. Takes about an hour and a half to cook, but is very easy to make.
