This is the second time I've made this recipe and it is fabulous! It tastes like French Onion Soup and who doesn't love French Onion Soup? I only used 1/2 tsp of Dijon Mustard-in that amount it serves as a flavor enhancer, but isn't too "mustardy" tasting. I was surprised at how easy carmelizing the onions is--I turned the heat to low and they virtually cooked themselves. The second time I used Williams Sonoma's beef stock concentrate instead of chicken stock like the first time I made it-both versions were equally good. I used bangers from the Whole Foods meat department and if you can find bangers they taste much better than Italian Sausage or some other sausage substitute. They have a more subtle flavor and I believe are seasoned with cardamom and coriander. However, they have breadcrumbs in them, so they are not gluten-free. I just added a photo of the gravy made in my 3.7 qt Mauviel saute pan.

Excellent using rich beef broth instead of chicken stock, plus the red wine. I used grainy Dijon mustard. Served with President's Choice English Bangers, mashed russet potatoes and petit pois. For the next day, I sliced the leftover cooked sausages and placed in a casserole, covered with leftover onion gravy, and topped with the leftover mashed potatoes (with green peas folded in). Reheated at 350F for 30 minutes--delicious Bangers and Mash Cottage Pie. Cheers!

This was really good. I agree with another reviewer you really do need to let the onions caramelize to get the right consistency for this gravy. I will add a little less of the red wine next time.

Just a note that some Worcestershire sauce has anchovies listed in the ingredients, for those of you who are wanting to make a vegetarian version.

I’ve had this in my recipe box for quite a while, and I’m so glad that I finally got around to fixing it. It’s not something that you can throw together in a few minutes, but it’s worth the investment of time. By all means, let the onions caramelize. My cable company came right after I started this dish, and I lost my iPad connection for about 20 minutes while he was installing the new modem, so I just let the onions continue to cook. I served this over an AR recipe ground beef patty, as well as some mashed potatoes. The red wine definitely gives it a nice flavor. This is a versatile gravy that I can see being served over so many different foods.

The wine overpowered the other flavors. I would half it next time. It would probably be better with beef broth if you have it available. If you prefer thick gravy (American style), you will need to quadruple the flour.
