Tomato-Rosemary Pan Sauce

Recipe by  

"This sauce can be made in minutes as the cooked steaks rest. To make the sauce ahead, leave out the butter. Reheat just before serving, adding water if the sauce has reduced too much, then whisk in the butter. This amount is enough for four steaks."

Nice! I actually bought vermouth for this after I read how it could be used in other recipes calling for white wine. This sauce is good. I l added a little more rosemary because we both really love it. I also think doubling the sauce is a good idea if you are making 4 steaks. I used the recipe as written and it really only made enough for 2 mid-size ribeyes - but I like the sauce thickish and a thinner sauce would obviously go further. I seasoned my steaks with salt and back pepper only, and made the sauce in the searing pan. Thanks for the recipe!

I have made this sauce a number of times. I frequently use it on pork chops and serve over rice or buttered noodles. I also have put it over chicken and served with rice. Steak is actually my least favorite meat to serve it with, but that's just my personal taste. I have also made it with diced tomatoes with chiles in times when I wanted a spicier dinner, and that is also very good.

We loved this recipe. I used frozen chicken breast strips and cooked them on the stove in the sauce and it was wonderful! So easy and hassle free, I will definitely be making this again

Thanks for an easy and tasty recipe! I tried this with red wine, and I worried the wine would overpower the taste, but it actually seemed to enhance the other flavors! very tasy. Thanks for sharing!

I am so glad I tried this. It is soooo good! I used white wine and crushed tomatoes (about 1/2 jar) because that's what I had, and it was great. I put it over chicken that I had pan fried with a little extra rosemary. Worked well with green beans/almonds and brown rice/quinoa and a little of the extra wine :). It has great flavor and is really easy. Try it!
