Uses for Demi-glace

Alright, since some of you heathens don't seem to know what to do with the gift of demi-glace I have bestowed upon you, here it is, Marchand de Vin Sauce. This is my favorite recipe using demi-glace. Used immediately over a nice seared rib-eye, or filet it is fantastic. If there is any leftover you can use it as a compound butter. You could even freeze the compound butter. Try using the leftover butter on some steamed asparagus or broccoli with some roasted potatoes and grilled chicken. I will be serving this tonight with smashed potatoes, salad with apricot and pecans (recipe from my mom) and a vegetable to be determined after I see what looks good at the store. For dessert we will be having orange sherbet made in the ice cream maker. A nice bottle of Cabernet and we're all set. What else could you want or need on a cold winter's night?

Marchand de Vin Sauce

1 C red wine
2 shallots, minced
10 T softened butter
1-2 T demi-glace
1 1/4 tsp lemon juice
2 T chopped parsley

Boil red wine and shallots 12-15 minutes until reduced by 2/3. Remove from heat and whisk in butter, a tablespoon at a time, whisking after each addition. Stir in lemon juice and parsley and adjust seasoning to taste.

Just two tablespoonfuls of demi-glace? I remain skeptical, though I trust you provisionally.

Wish I lived near enough to you that I could buzz in and steal, I mean borrow, some from you.

My darling June, you need to get a life. Let the minions at Wegmans stir for 25 hours!!
By the way, the queen of trailer park cuisine agrees that Miracle whip is truly Vile. Of course, so is the concept of stirring beef and veal stock for 25 hours.

Meredith, you sound like an ass.

One doesn't "stir" stock for 25 hours, one simmers it for a few hours.

One can also do stuff while that happens, if one is not a complete idiot.

Some people enjoy cooking. They don't see it as not having a life, they see it as having something in life they love to do, and then get to savour, share, and enjoy after.

Stop being an ass.

Keep rockin', June.
