This popular sauce is frequently used to top off steaks and roasts for an extra kick of flavor. Give this recipe a try next time you grill up some beef. You'll be presently surprised at just how delicious it is.

Ingredients

  • 1 10-ounce can beef consomme
  • 1/4 cup/60 milliliters flour
  • 1/4 cup/60 milliliters butter
  • 1 tablespoon garlic (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon shallot (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon steak sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan. Cook shallots over medium-low heat for 3 minutes until they look translucent. Add garlic to the pan and cook for 15 seconds, just enough to release its aroma. Add flour and pepper, making a rue. Continue cooking for about 1 minute.

  2. In a separate bowl combine dry mustard, steak sauce, beef consommé and pour gradually into the saucepan with flour mixture. Make sure to use a wire whisk to keep clumps at bay. Bring mixture to a good simmer, stirring until well mixed and well thickened.  The sauce should be able to coat the back of a spoon.

  3. Remove from heat, let cool for 5 minutes. Serve on top of or alongside grilled beef and steaks.

  4. Store leftover sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days after preparation. Reheat before serving.
