Bordelaise sauce is based on a classic brown sauce that involves roasting meat bones until very brown before being simmered in liquid. For a quicker variation, stir up this simplified version, which eliminates the bone-roasting step yet still provides great flavor. It's the perfect match for beef roasts, pork roasts, chops and even burgers.
Prep: 10 min - Cook: 15 min
About 1 Cup Sauce


• 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
• 1 thin slice onion
• 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
• 1/2 cup beef broth
• 1/2 cup dry red wine

• 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
• 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped onion
• 1 dried bay leaf
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/8 teaspoon pepper

In 1 1/2-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Cook onion slice in butter, stirring constantly, until onion is brown; discard onion.
