Here is a simple recipe that was given to me over a decade ago. It is wonderful with steak or roast beef. Use a full bodied wine such as Merlot or Shiraz for best results.

  2. In a separate saucepan on medium low heat, melt 3 tablespons butter and saute the onioins, garlic and mushrooms until lightly brown. Add the beef stock, red wine, Worcestershire sauce, and a dash of salt and pepper. Cook for 15 minutes, reducing liquid. Add to the roux and mix well. Cook until thickened.
