Method

  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan and cook shallots over a high heat for 5 mins. When they are golden, drain off and throw away the oil. Add the butter, bay and thyme and toss with seasoning. Cook for 5-8 mins, stirring so that the butter doesn’t burn.
  2. Pour over the stock and cook until the shallots are tender and the sauce is reduced and sticky.
