rich, savory flavor and taste.
3/4 c chopped garlic and 1 cup chopped shallots in butter (in
this video Rick used 2/3 of a 1/4# stick of butter.) Add, Rick's
Chef Salt, parsley and thyme. Saute till garlic is somewhat
browned, then add 1 bottle of red wine, about 2 cups water,
and bring to a boil. Then turn down to a simmer and cook about
30 minutes, stopping in at the 15 minute mark to add more water.
Stir and add water as needed. Season, thicken with corn starch
and water, taste and season again if needed. Finish by adding
either more corn starch mix to thicken more, or water to thin
down. Then check seasoning, this sauce should be lightly salty
(almost like a sweet and sour but it shouldn't be as sweet!).
sauce is best when made ahead and then reheated!
