Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time10 minutes
Total Time15 minutes
Course: Sauces
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 shallot finely minced
  • ¼ cup red wine
  • white pepper freshly ground, to taste
  • 1 cup demi glace
  • ¼ cup blue cheese crumbled


  • Heat a saucepan over medium heat and when hot, add butter and let it melt. Be careful not to let it burn.
  • Add shallots and saute for 4 minutes until translucent.
  • Deglaze the pan with red wine, then season with a little freshly ground pepper to taste.
  • Add the demi-glace, stir and continue to cook until the sauce is thick enough to coat a spoon.
  • Add the crumbled blue cheese and stir until the cheese is well incorporated into the sauce.
  • Taste and adjust the season with pepper. I don’t think the sauce will need any salt because of the cheese but if it needs it, add a little and taste.
