Steak Sauce

A restaurant chef’s secret weapon for mushroom steak sauce is “Demi-Glace,” which is concentrated beef or veal stock that will create a rich, luxurious, meaty flavor that you can’t replicate with any seasoning. Made from scratch demi-glace is a laborious task that takes 4 hours or more of roasting bones and reducing the broth until it becomes thick, syrupy and viscous.

Most restaurants use prepared demi-glace, which you can find in gourmet supermarkets, butcher shops and of course on Amazon (I prefer the Savory Choice brand that retails for less than $7).

If you prefer to make your own, here is Chef Steps’ recipe, which takes 3-4 hours.
