I had eveything on hand except for demi-glaze, I also had to sub red wine for white because it's all I had, other than that, followed the directions... This dish was truly amazing, my husband and I both agreed it was restaurant quality; I served it with sauted rapini and garlic, and some crusty garlic bread, it was a sensational dish that I can't wait to make again :)
