Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Sauté 250g sliced shallots in a medium saucepan with 4 tbsp olive oil over a high heat for about 3 mins until lightly browned, stirring often.

  • STEP 2

    Season with ground black pepper and add 1 lightly crushed garlic clove and a sprig of rosemary.

  • STEP 3

    Continue cooking for a further 3 mins, stirring often to prevent the shallots burning.

  • STEP 4

    Pour in 5 tbsp balsamic vinegar and cook until evaporated away to a syrup, then pour in 400ml red wine and cook until reduced by two thirds.

  • STEP 5

    Pour in 400ml beef or brown chicken stock and bring to the boil.

  • STEP 6

    Turn down the heat and simmer until reduced by two-thirds again, to around 250ml. Remove the garlic and rosemary.

  • STEP 7

    Add a little salt to taste and finally 'monte' (whisk) in a knob of butter. Add any juices from the steaks just before serving.
