I slowly sauteed the veggies then verrryyy slowwwwlllyyy brought the cream to a simmer to extract as much flavor as possible from them. Delicious!! Schluuurrrp! Made to go with Pannbiff Med Lok - Meat Patties With Onions for ZWT9, Mike & the Appliance Killers!

Surprisingly with those kitchen sink ingredients this was really tasty! It was a bit redundant serving a sauce that contains onions over beef patties that contain onions and a garnish of caramelized onions. However, if you like onions then this would be ideal. After finishing our patties we graduated to dunking our bread in the sauce then running our fingers through the sauce on the platter. No one was there to stop us. PS I did not strain the carrots or the shallots-too precious to discard. Made for ZWT 9.
