Default REC: Sauce Marsala

I adapted this from a basic red wine sauce I saw demonstrated recently.
I served it with pepper grilled beef tenderloins.

Sauce Marsala

Rich sauce with a sweet-savory flavor. Goes well with beef or other roasted

Recipe By: Pete Romfh
Serving Size: 6
Cuisine: French
Main Ingredient: Wine
Categories: Diabetic, Low Carb, Sauces, Condiments

-= Ingredients =-
1 cup Marsala wine
1/2 cup Chicken stock ; - low sodium is fine
1/2 teaspoon Black pepper ; - very coarse ground
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 tablespoon Butter
1/2 teaspoon Flour
1 pinch kosher salt
1/4 cup Brandy

-= Instructions =-
Place the wine and chicken stock in a heavy saute pan and simmer over medium
heat until it is reduced to about half it''s original volume (about 10
minutes). Add the black pepper part way through the reduction to allow it
to infuse it''s flavors.

While it's simmering blend the butter and flour together into a paste and
chill to firm it up.
When the stock is reduced slowly blend in the cream. Then add the butter
paste in 1/2 teaspoon increments while whisking the sauce. It will thicken
after a few minutes into a creamy sauce. Add a pinch of salt if needed but
keep in mind that the chicken stock has salt already and you've concentrated
that flavor. Allow the sauce to go a bit thicker than you need as it will
thin a bit in the next step.

Just prior to serving pour the brandy around the rim of the hot pan and tilt
it to ignite the fumes. While it's flaming whisk the sauce to blend the
brandy and thin the sauce. This will also give the sauce a nice glossy
"finish". This step can be done at the table if you're into that sort of
tableside theatrics (I certainly am).

Serve hot.

Each (2 tbs) serving of sauce contains an estimated:
