Mushroom and Red wine Steak sauce

20160206_170443_resized

Our Saturday night is normally Steak night, after a while I am always looking for a change and as I love mushrooms and Red wine I thought I would try my hand at a homemade steak sauce instead of buying one. I have to admit this is pretty delicious and rich in flavour.

Serves 2

2 Shallots – sliced
4 tbsp olive oil
4 Chestnut mushrooms – sliced – I love our Scottish ones by Sainsburys, loads of flavour.

1 tsp garlic
1 tsp rosemary
4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
50ml red wine
50ml beef stock
2 tbsp creme fraiche
1 knob butter

 

  1. Saute the shallots in a pan with oil
  2. Season with black cracked pepper, garlic and rosemary
  3. Add the knob of butter, melt, then add in the mushrooms, cook for few mins.
  4. Pour in the balsamic vinegar until it turns into a syrup                                                                  20160206_170019_resized_1
  5. Pour in the wine and reduce by 2 thirds                                                                                                 20160206_170113_resized_1
  6. Pour in the beef stock and bring to the boil, simmer for a few mins.
  7. Add in the creme fraiche and stir through. Serve. Yummy!  20160206_170508_resized

NOTE: You could use Beef Stock instead of Creme Fraiche if you don’t want it creamy.
