  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 28g unsalted butter
  • 60ml red wine
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 250ml beef broth
  • ½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp dark balsamic vinegar
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme
  • ½ sprig fresh sage
  • 1 tsp cornstarch dissolved in ½ tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp cold unsalted butter
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper

STEP 1

Peel the yellow onion and cut them into think slices.

STEP 2

In a saucepan, add butter and place it on medium heat. Once the butter melts, add sliced onions, sugar and cook sauté for about 25 to 30 minutes until they get a deep golden colour. This process is called caramelisation.

STEP 3

Pour red wine to deglaze the pan. Stir with a wooden spoon to scrape off the bits from the bottom of the pan. Add thyme sprig and sage sprig and let the red wine boil for about 2 minutes.

STEP 4

Reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. Pour in beef stock, salt, black pepper and Worcestershire sauce.

STEP 5

Cover the saucepan, and reduce the heat to let it simmer for about 20 minutes.

STEP 6

Remove the herb sprigs, and add vinegar and cornstarch slurry. Let it simmer for a minute or two until the sauce starts to thicken. Don't forget to stir constantly.

STEP 7

Lastly, add cold butter and whisk until it is dissolved. Serve.
