“A traditional sauce Bordelaise has beef marrow in it; this recipe skips the marrow (which can be difficult to come by), but still tastes amazing. Serve this over steaks, hamburgers, or pork chops.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt 1 tbsp butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and garlic and cook until soft and translucent, 3-5 minutes.
  2. Add remaining butter and allow to melt. When melted, add mushrooms and stir to coat. Cook, stirring frequently, until mushrooms soften and begin to exude liquid, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add beef broth, wine, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaf, thyme and pepper. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce to medium-low and simmer until reduced by about half, 45-60 minutes. Taste and correct seasoning if needed. (A splash of soy sauce instead of salt adds another dimension and is an alternative if needed.) Remove bay leaf before serving.
