Demi-glace sauce: (using brown stock)

1 gallon Brown Stock

1 tablespoon butter, plus 2 tablespoons cold butter

1 shallot, finely chopped

3 cups sliced wild mushrooms

1 cup red wine

2 tablespoons chopped thyme leaves

Place the stock in a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and simmer until reduced to 1 quart.

In a saucepan over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of the butter and melt. Add the shallot and saute until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms and saute until they have given off their liquid, about 5 minutes. Add the red wine and reduce until almost dry, about 5 minutes. Add the stock and simmer to heat through. Add the thyme and season with salt and pepper. Finish with the remaining 2 tablespoons butter.

Yield: about 4 cups
