Red Wine Reduction Sauce


A simple yet flavorful red wine reduction sauce. After going to one of my favorite steak houses and having a similar sauce, I needed to learn how to make it; it's delish! You gotta try it.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 shallot, diced

  • 1 cup pinot noir wine

  • 1 cup beef broth

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

  • 1 pinch salt to taste (Optional)


  1. Heat olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook shallot in hot oil until golden brown, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add wine into the saucepan; cook, stirring regularly, until reduced in volume by half, 3 to 4 minutes.

  3. Stir in beef broth. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook at a simmer until slightly reduced, about 5 minutes.

  4. Stir butter and Italian seasoning into the sauce; cook until butter is completely melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt.


Any dry red wine will work, but I use pinot noir.
