Ingredients

How to make it

  • Heat the clarified butter over medium heat.
  • Off the flame, stir in the mirepoix (onion, carrot, celery bacon mix).
  • Mix thoroughly. Return to fire and allow to brown.
  • Add the flour off the flame and mix thoroughly.
  • Return to fire and brown, stirring constantly until a nut brown color.
  • Remove from the heat and blend in the boiling stock all at once.
  • Beat in tomato paste.
  • Add the herb bouquet and simmer very slowly for 1/2 hour.
  • If it thickens too much, add more stock.
  • This should make about 2 1/2 cups of sauce, thick enough to coat a spoon lightly.
  • Add brandy, salt and pepper.
  • Bring up to a boil for a few seconds.
  • Remove from the fire.
  • Correct seasoning for salt and pepper.
  • Strain.
  • Ready to use.
  • If not used immediately, clean the sides of the pan and float a bit of stock on top of the sauce to keep a skin from forming. Once cold, it can be refrigerated or frozen.

    Tina....this is the nicest 'gravy' I have ever made in my entire life or ever had. It is phenomenal. A bit time consuming but boy well worth it. This is something I will make up a double or triple batch of and then have on hand in the freezer in usable portions. It is rich and the consistency is gorgeous....silky...flavourful....I could go on and on and on.....
    I bow to this Demi-Glaze and your cooking skills! :)
    (And I'd give it a '10' if I could)
