    These reduction sauces are best made directly in the same pan the meat was cooked in. Deglazing the pan with the wine, stirring up all those caramelized bits and juices with the stock, then reducing it all down is what develops depth of flavor.
  2. eparnisari
    Do you cover the roast while cooking?
  3. victoriaarico
    Do you need brandy or can I substitute something else?
