Romance Sauce

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"This is a delicious, quick sauce to serve with grilled steaks or a roast. I got this recipe from my sister whose husband gave it the name 'Romance Sauce', when she cooked this with steaks he knew it was going to be a special night. Serve the steaks with a green salad and a simple vinaigrette; this is an easy, romantic meal sure to impress the ladies! You could easily substitute the beef stock with chicken and serve over chicken breasts if beef isn't your thing."
