  • 1 cup of Madeira wine

  • 1 cup meat broth (or vegetable broth for vegetarian version)

  • 2 tablespoons of butter

  • 1 tablespoon of wheat flour

  • 1 small onion finely chopped

  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation mode

  • In a saucepan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat.
  • Add the chopped onion and garlic to the pan and sautĂ© until soft and lightly browned.
  • Add Madeira wine to the pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Let it cook for a few minutes to reduce the wine a little and concentrate the flavors.
  • In a small bowl, mix the flour with the remaining butter until a paste forms.
  • Add the flour and butter paste to the pan with the wine and stir well to combine.
  • Gradually add the beef broth to the mixture, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Continue cooking until the sauce begins to thicken.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and let the sauce cook for a few more minutes to let the flavors blend.
  • Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Strain the sauce through a sieve to remove the onion and garlic pieces, resulting in a smooth, silky sauce.
