Leon's Sauce

Cooking method: Simmering

Total preparation time: 10 min.


3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup red wine, such as a dry burgundy
2 tablespoons garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
8 ounces white button mushrooms, sliced 1/8 inch thick
10 sprigs curly parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons demi-glace
Pepper, freshly ground


1. Heat the olive oil until bubbling and hot, about 1 minute, in a medium skillet set over medium-high heat. Remove skillet from heat; add the wine, garlic, butter, mushrooms, parsley, and demi-glace. Season with salt and pepper. Return to heat, and cook, stirring often, until mushrooms are tender and the sauce is thick and reduced enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, 5 to 7 minutes. Store in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 1 week.
