Reduced Red Wine Sauce for Steaks

If you enjoy drinking red wine, then this is a  red wine sauce that you are going to love with your steak. As a side I made some Au Gratin Potatoes.


3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 cup of chicken stock
1 1/2 cups dry red wine

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a heavy large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt. Add the garlic and oregano and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Whisk in the chicken stock and wine. Simmer until the sauce reduces by half, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.

 Remove the skillet from the heat. Strain the sauce into a small bowl, pressing on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard the solids in the strainer and return the sauce to the saucepan and bring back to a slow simmer. Cut the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter into small 1/2-inch chunks and whisk in the sauce a little at a time. Season the sauce, to taste, with salt and pepper.

Drizzle the sauce over the steak, or pour into individual serving ramekins. Enjoy with your favorite piece of steak.
