  1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the shallots, and cook for 2 minutes to soften slightly. Add the mushrooms, and continue cooking until the mushrooms have released their liquid and are tender. Remove the mushrooms from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Pour the port wine into the skillet and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil until the port has reduced and is almost syrupy, 5 to 7 minutes. Whisk in the mustard and beef broth. Dissolve the cornstarch into the water, and whisk into the boiling sauce. Stir until the sauce has thickened, about 30 seconds. Remove the skillet from the heat, and whisk in the remaining 1 tablespoon butter until it has melted into the sauce. Stir the cooked mushrooms back into the sauce and serve.

Good sauce. Took about 10mins to thicken up after adding the stock. I finished it with a splash of cream instead of the butter.

This was an emergency whip up and then I realized I was out of port wine! So I checked the booze cabinet, turned upa bottle of madeira, so I ended up making madeira sauce and just lighted up a little on the dijon. It was very good. I always like to have some quick and easy sauce recipes in my back pocket, to add some life to boring old grilled chicken or pork. This definitely will stay in my recipe box.

I wanted a sauce for lamb chops. Normally, I would grill the chops and serve plain, but I wanted some extra flavor. This was unbelievable. I didn't measure the mustard, but it was much less than the 1/4 cup called for - I wanted to insure I tasted the port with the lamb, and didn't want an overwhelming mustard flavor. Other than that, kept everything the same. It was yummy! Served with seared lamb chops, smashed potatoes, and steamed cauliflower.

I was searching the web site for a topper to our grilled steaks. Came across this gem. I didn't have port wine so I used dry white wine. I think any kind of wine will do. Next time, I'm going to reduce the mustard in half. This would also go great on top of mashed potatoes. Thanks for this keeper!

I made this sauce on christmas to go with beef tenderloin and it was amazing. Everyone raved about it. Now I did not have any beef broth so instean i made my own with bullion cubes and water and it still turned our great. I would definitely recommend it to anyone

Excellent, but had to add maybe 1/4 cup cream to this to make it extra good. Easy and delicious!
