RED WINE & SHALLOT SAUCE

Rich and lusty, this decadent Red Wine & Shallot Sauce is mellowed by sweet sauteed shallots and then enriched with butter to give it a glossy finish!

It’s absolutely delicious with almost any cut of beef, including my Roast Beef with Au Jus For A Crowd!

ROAST BEEF WITH AU JUS FOR A CROWD

When it’s time to serve a bunch of guests, and I want everything done ahead of time, this is my go-to solution!  I put together an easy, but hearty menu that’s just perfect for an afternoon of football or gaming with your pals.

 

LET YOUR GUESTS KNOW WHAT’S IN THOSE SAUCE BOWLS!

I don’t spend my hostess time when entertaining answering the eternal question from guests, “what’s this?”.  It’s a lesson I learned years ago when catering both small and large events, it pays to include signage on a party buffet!

I’m known for using picture framed menus decorated in keeping with the function’s décor/theme. It gives the guests the information they need, including allergy-sensitive ingredient disclosures, like nuts or shellfish.

But, when I’m entertaining at home, I adore using tent signs to do the job instead!  They’re fun to display on the buffet, and can be used over and over if desired.  I keep mine in snack sized zipper bags, and store them with my entertaining supplies.

Don’t you need a set of fabulous preprinted “Bovine” themed tent cards for your Beef for a Crowd sauces?
