This popular sauce is frequently used to top off steaks and roasts for an extra kick of flavor. Give this recipe a try next time you grill up some beef. You'll be presently surprised at just how delicious it is.

What You'll Need

  • 1 10-ounce can beef consomme
  • 1/4 cup/60 milliliters flour
  • 1/4 cup/60 milliliters butter

  • 1 tablespoon steak sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

How to Make It

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan. Cook shallots over medium low heat for 3 minutes until they look translucent. Add garlic to pan and cook for 15 seconds, just enough to release it's aroma. Add flour and pepper, making a rue. Continue cooking for about 1 minute.
  2. In a separate bowl combine dry mustard, steak sauce, beef consommé and pour gradually into the saucepan with flour mixture. Make sure to use a wire whisk to keep clumps at bay. Bring mixture to a good simmer, stirring until well mixed and well thickened.  The sauce should be able to coat the back of a spoon.

  2. Store leftover sauce in an air tight container in refrigerator for 3 to 4 days after preparation. Reheat before serving.
