"Delicious red wine-based sauce that pairs perfectly with filet mignon or New York strip steaks. This can also go well with a roast or prime rib." — Randy

Randy knows what he is talking about! Fantastic reduction! One suggestion for a richer sauce, after reducing, melt in 1 pat of butter and stir until creamy smooth. Fantastic with a standing rib roast! Also try this, my favorite with this reduction! Carmalize fresh sliced mushrooms and thinly sliced red onions in a little butter and olive oil. Spoon over steak or roast slices and pour some reduction over all. Yum!
I'm a bit surprised by the number of numerous 4-5 star ratings on this sauce. I was not satisfied at all with it. It was way too sweet for me and it lacked the complexity that I was expecting from all of the ingredients that went into it. I have made spur of the moment pan reductions that had more flavor and nuance.
My husband and I have been searching a long time for the perfect red wine sauce to go on top of any steak and we have found it! I followed the recipe exactly and the result was spectacular. It was the best steak sauce I have ever made or paid for, and it is not that hard. I put the sauce on top of a filet with sautéed onions & cremini mushrooms and as gravy for the mashed potatoes, it was perfect. I would definitely recommend this recipe
This was the perfect reduction. I didn't have any shallots or mushrooms (sadly because I love them) but used some celery and it still came out very tasty.
This was quite tasty. I think I'll change up the veggie mix a little next time, but it came out strong and delicious.
This is a delicious recipe. I have changed it up a little by using olive oil for the saute, then adding only a TB butter at the end to finish it with a beautiful sheen.
This was AWESOME drizzled over beef wellington. I've always been told to cook with wine you would also drink, so I used a shiraz/cab blend that I sipped on. Thanks for sharing!
This sauce is fantastic!!! I will make time and time again....
